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.

Pet Bike Trailers – Bring Your Furry Friend Along

This post is for all of the animal and bicycle lovers out there. Do you find it difficult to ride away from home with your loyal pet(s) staring longingly after you? I know it is difficult for me! My dog always makes a fuss when I leave home without him, and I really enjoy bringing him along on adventures. Fortunately all the pet lovers can rest easy and bring their favorite furry friend(s) along on adventures and errands alike with a pet bike trailer.

One of our customers shared a few photos with us of her new Burley Tail Wagon trailer, which she uses to bring her dog along on various trips. She and her dog Ennis have ridden all over town, and they both love it!

Pet bike trailers are useful for bringing your pet with you on longer bike rides, as well as for pets that can’t keep up with your active lifestyle, but don’t want to stay at home all the time. Just like bike child trailers, bike dog trailers can easily be converted to strollers, and some of them can even be converted to ski trailers!

Pet bike trailers are two-wheeled, which makes them more stable, while reinforced floors and side battens keep those friskier pets from escaping or tipping the trailer over. These features help to ensure that the trailer itself bears most of the load of your pet, in addition to making it safe for you and your furry companion. And best of all, pet bike trailers can easily be used to carry other types of cargo when not in use by your pet.
