Ted’s Leisure Trailer – Built for Fun

by Melanie Lipton

Ted recently shared with us his sturdy trailer build that looks like a party on wheels!

 

Ted explains the origins:
I built this bike trailer in the spring of 1987 in Calgary, Alberta. It was designed to supplement a backpack and front pannier bags, and to encourage a leisurely travel pace through exercise.
Two main challenges by this design: replacing a tire and accelerated downhill speeds. 

 

In addition to a lot of cargo space, he’s also outfitted his rig with a solar panel, front and rear lights, and detachable speakers.   Not only does this trailer look like a great bike touring and camping rig, but we think it could be an excellent addition to a picnic, tailgate, or BBQ.
