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.

Trevor’s Pedal-To-Petal Custom Compost Bike Trailer

For those of you in Victoria, BC who want to give back to the soil that sustains you, but don’t have the time or energy, or don’t know where to start,  Pedal-To-Petal has a solution:

Pedal-To-Petal is a permaculture-based collective of bicycle loving food security activists who are taking direct action to reduce carbon emissions and landfill waste and to feed the soil and the city’s hungry.

We offer weekly pick-up of kitchen scraps to your residence or business in Victoria, BC. We provide sturdy, air and water tight 5 gallon pails for your scraps, and flexible pickup schedules. Most residences fill up one of these every other week. Our business clients tend to fill one or more buckets every week.

This is Trevor’s full-time job – hauling compost from Pedal-To-Petal clients in his awesome compost bike trailer-mobile!


 

Other trash collection and recycle-by-bike enterprises are also up-and-coming in the continental U.S. and are highlighted on our sister blog, Utility Cycling.
