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.

Touring Latin America with a Cyclone

Here’s a photo sent in by Pierre, who is seen relaxing in Oxaca, Mexico with his Radical Design Cyclone III Cargo Trailer.

From Mexico, I rode all the way to Panama, taking my time, stopping here and there to discover and impregnate myself of the wonders of Central America; in Panama, by coincidence I found a very interesting job for an NGO, doing educational and environmental projects in the jungle. So I decided to stay here for a while.

The Cyclone delivered so well. I had a ton of stuff with me. Heavy books, full camping equipment, mountain stuff, a guitar, an extra backpack etc. All in all I must have been carrying between 75 and 90 pounds of equipment, all in that big bag! On flat and downhill roads, it performed so well. Uphill, it was like dragging an army tank behind me! I took it on all kinds of roads, from concrete to big bad disgusting rocky dirt roads, and it never broke; never even got a flat tire in more than 1300 miles!
