Bike Trailer Blog:

All hail the bike cargo trailer!

Bike cargo trailers are amazing tools for getting more out of a bicycle -- and keeping you a out of your car. In all their variety, bike cargo trailers are the perfect tools for hauling stuff by bike.

We cover touring, commuting, errands, and generally doing more by bike -- so we don't leave out cargo bikes and conversions.

The topics of bike child trailers and trailer-cycles are covered in our Family Cycling section.

Submit Your Bike Trailer Photos

This blog is about sharing the fun, the utility, and the creativity that bike trailers can inspire. We want photos of how you've used your trailer -- whether it's an off-the-shelf model in a beautiful or interesting setting, or if it's a Franken-trailer customized in a way only you could have conceived.

Photos help to spread ideas, and stimulate discussion. It doesn't matter if you bought from one of our shops or not -- Bike Trailer Shop, Bike Bag Shop and Bike Kid Shop. Your photos and the stories behind them want to be seen and heard.

Jay’s Boat Mast Bike Trailer Build

How do you get a 24 foot mast and boom to its 20 foot sailboat if the boat is 30 miles away?  Sound like one of those algebra questions from high school?  Jay’s got the answer and even used ratios to explain his decisions.  He built a trailer, attached it to his bike, and made the long, hilly journey over.  “It was a fun project and a fun day.”  He also made a video of his journey if you find yourself in a similar situation and could use a few pointers..  Here are some of the highlights.

Testing the turning radius.

Road testing – 30 miles to go!

Traffic hour.

Hitting it hard on the hills. (What happened to the bike lane?!) Nearly reached the finish line.  A+ for effort!
