Facts on a Pull-Behind Bike Trailer

Save

Bicycle shops regularly field queries from parents looking to make biking a family activity. Pull-behind bike trailers come in a variety of styles, and they tend to be safe and easy to use.

Types

  • There are two common types of pull-behind bike trailers. With the first, a child, pet or your items merely sit in a tent-like compartment. In the second, children can share in the workload with their own seats, pedals and handlebars.

Function

  • Pull-behind bike trailers can be used to tow kids, but they also come in handy for transporting pets, groceries and other items. The trailer-bike style allows children to be physically active on the ride.

Attachment

  • A trailer bike attaches to the seat post of an adult bike. The type of trailer that your child, pet, or goods sits in most often attaches where the axle fits into the rear wheel of your bicycle.

Safety

  • On both types of pull-behind bike trailers, it is important to attach a brightly colored flag that extends several feet toward the sky. Your child should always wear a helmet.

Other Uses

  • Some pull-behind trailers that aren't trailer bikes double as strollers.
