I later bought a Burley and pulled my daughters around in it. I can vividly picture the two of them sitting side-by-side with their tiny hands curled around the fabric at the front of the trailer. On the way home from the park, they would chant in unison for me to take one of Iowa City’s surviving brick streets so they could sing and shout while the bumpy ride added a little vibrato to their voices.
I’ve always been fascinated with bicycle trailers; first as cargo carriers, then as kid carriers. A lot more options have come on the market in the past decade. In the US, production bicycle trailers started to come on to the scene in the late 70's and early 80's with Blue Sky and Burley.
But in France, trailers were popular long before. I remember seeing old funky trailers around France and that was 25 years ago. I've put together a few pictures of interesting vintage French trailers for cargo and kids.
