Camping With a Bicycle Trailer

Bicycle Camping Only
The appeal of a bicycle camping trip seems too good to be true. Going off to live off of the land with only the bare essentials, it seems silly to load up that SUV and tread all over nature's trails. Luckily, with some of the new bicycle trailers out there, it's easy to bring all the gear you need and just pedal a bicycle. It's 100% eco-friendly, and it's more fun than driving a car!

Burley Bicycle Trailers

Some of the best quality bicycle trailers available are made by Burley. Lightweight, durable, and easily detachable, the Burley bike trailers attach to almost any bicycle.

For a short camping trip with only one or two people, the Burley Travoy folding bicycle trailer is the best option. Carrying up to 60 lbs., the Travoy functions just like a hand-truck, and can actually be detached and used as one! Two air-filled wheels provide a smooth, maneuverable ride. The Transit Bags are a perfect fit for camping gear, with compartments to fit a tent, cooking supplies, and tools. The best part? When you're not using it, the Travoy folds up to the size of a small suitcase. Cool, right?

Electrify The Camping Experience With an Electric Bike

Pulling a cargo trailer is a lot of work on a bike. You can take away most of the effort by riding an electric bike instead! With new Lithium batteries, these electric bikes travel up to 20 miles on a single charge, and have more than enough power to pull a bicycle trailer. If the camp has an outlet, you can even charge the bike after you set up camp, or ride it around some of the trails.

Converting a bike to an electric bike is always a great option, and the BionX electric bike kit is the best way to keep your favorite bike, but add a bit of electric power. Attach a bicycle trailer to a BionX bike and there is little to no effort with the highly intelligent BionX motor.

Instead of loading up a truck or SUV with camping gear, why not load up a bicycle trailer? It adds the element to your trip of actually getting there, an adventure that can hardly be experienced inside the shiny interior of an automobile.

    Wow. I’ve personally never seen a bicycle trailer out and about, but I can see why they are so effective and offer so many choices and adventures for bike enthusiasts. What a great way to do a family activity that’s not traditional!

    Ditto the previous comment. We are RVers (and might not be considered “traditional” campers, either), but can see the obvious draw that bicycle camping can be for those who really enjoy sight-seeing or just traveling by bicycle.
