A bicycle cargo trailer is a platform that attaches to your bike and can be loaded with groceries, firewood, and other items for transport. Most have 2 wheels for extra stability, though there are a few single-wheel models. Most also lie flat and have some kind of enclosure of either bars or fabric. Some of the fabric models are strollers that have seats for children or pets. Some attach to your rear bicycle wheel while others connect to the seatpost. Most trailers will fold for storage. Bicycle cargo trailers that weigh less also tend to handle less weight. A trailer that’s 10 lbs., for instance, may only be able to transport 60 lbs. while one that weighs 30 lbs. can carry up to 180 lbs.
