Grocery Getter Bike Trailer

Bike Walk Wichita hopes to get more people using their bikes for routine transportation. To that end, we are offering this design for a simple “grocery getter” trailer. Parts cost about $20, not counting 16″ kids bike wheels which are commonly available used.

We offer build clinics on building this trailer, and will be able to offer a parts kit or fully built trailer later this year.

This presentation details the steps in trailer construction, or download a PDF. You can also see it on Instructables:

If you’d like to sign up for a build clinic, let us know using this form. Once we have enough people ready we’ll schedule another clinic. Our clinic will have an introductory session with the plans and parts, with a bit of hands on time, then allow people to build in our shop during our regular open shop times. We do have a few parts available for purchase.

Yes! I’d like to learn to build a trailer.
