Baby On Board

Sometimes cyclists make additions to their families. Or sometimes families decide that cycling is a great way to get into shape together. Whatever brought you to the point of deciding to look for a child carrier for your bike, we know that finding the right carrier for your lifestyle is as important as keeping your precious cargo safe.

At Higher Gear, we’re big fans of the child trailers. They offer the safest way to transport your little one (or ones). Child trailers also hold their value. (Though, they’re often difficult to find used. In fact, most of our customers hang on to theirs long after their children are grown and use them to transport groceries or to pack up for a day at the beach.)

We offer child trailers by Burley. Long known as the worldwide leader in child bicycle trailers, Burley has been delivery the absolute best in quality, durability and safety for over 30 years.


Burley D’Lite

The D’Lite, Burley’s top-of-the-line child trailer, offers sleek functionality and maximizes comfort. This cutting edge product is ideal for the avid user or occasional cruiser with great taste. It has seating for one or two children and includes cutting-edge features such as bowed-out sides for enhanced shoulder room, adjustable suspension system, reclining seats, tinted UV protected windows, retractable sunshade, latching system for easy folding, and release buckles for easy removal of the seat for washing or running kid-free errands.

Burley Encore

The Burley Encore is ideal for activity hounds who don’t need all the bells and whistles of the D’Lite, but insist upon the highest levels of durability, safety and convenience. With seating for one or two children, the Encore features a removable seat pad and shoulder harness, tinted UV protected side windows, reclining seats, convenient sunshade, and a weather-resistant cover.

All of the Burleys featured here can hold up to two children or 100 pounds. Each comes standard with the trailer with cover, the tow arm and hitch for bicycle use and a safety flag.

Optional add-ons for the D’Lite and Encore include wheeled stroller kits (one or two wheels) and double jogger kit.

A child must be able to sit upright unattended and hold his or her head up while wearing a bicycle helmet. Burley recommends that a child should be at least one before biking in trailer.


Higher Gear normally only stocks one child trailer at each location at a time. It’s best to call ahead if you know which trailer you would like so we can order it for you. If you’re not sure which trailer works best for your family, we’re happy to talk you through the process of choosing one. Give us a call or stop in to either Higher Gear location.
