Burley Bike Trailer

For over 30 years, Burley and the Burley bike trailer has lead the bike trailer market by producing the famous bike trailer, as well as a variety of child bike trailers. Recently, the company launched a new commuter trailer that was officially presented at the 2010 EuroBike tradeshow where it won a Gold award for quality, efficiency, and safety.

Started in the 1970s by Alan Sholz and originally called “Burley Bike Bags”, Burley rapidly became the ultimate bicycle trailer manufacturer in the country. Several years later, it developed into a worker-owned cooperative and was eventually sold to an Oregon businessman who has continued to improve the design, durability and comfort of all Burley bicycle trailers.

Travoy Burley Bike Trailer

The Travoy easily attaches to a bicycle's seatpost and allows for redistribution of the load's weight by riding at a 45-degree angle. To detach the Travoy, users just grab the hitch, twist and the trailer is instantly transformed into a lightweight (less than ten pounds) rolling cart.

When you purchase the Travoy bike trailer, you also receive:

  • A cargo bag
  • Tie-down straps
  • Towbar height between 32 and 38 inches
  • Ability to fold the Travoy into a package about the size of a traditional briefcase

Burley also makes trailers for safe and easy pet transportation purposes. The Tail Wagon bike trailer is adjustable to allow space for small and large dogs and provides a “flip-down” tailgate to facilitate loading and removing pets.

The floor is removable and quickly cleaned with water and soap. With the Tail Wagon, users also receive a trailer cover, safety flag, mesh side windows conducive to air flow and pockets to hold pet accessories. Animals weighing up to 75 pounds can be transported in the Tail Wagon.

If you plan on using a bicycle as a bug-out vehicle, hitching a Burley bike trailer to your bicycle can give you the ability to haul a large amount of survival items in the event you have to flee a large-scale disaster area, and either don’t have fuel or your motor vehicle won’t run.
