It’s no secret I love running, biking and well…anything active. If I can share it with my kids then it’s even better. That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on the Burley D’Lite bike trailer. I have been able to take the kids running, thanks to a jog stroller but now we can share more!
I put it together last weekend as the kids looked on. It was super easy! All while the kids quizzed…
“Mommy…what is that?”
“Mommy…do we get to go biking?”
“Mommy…can we get in now?” (as I’m putting on the last wheel)
I was a little scared about how it was going to work. Was it going to be too hard to pull? Would I be able to pull two kids very far? Would they like it?
From my perspective, it’s not bad at all to pull. Yes, you obviously know you’re pulling almost 70 lbs of kid but it’s very manageable and a GREAT workout. I have really been enjoying it with them and the timing couldn’t be better. With a triathlon in two weeks and BikeMS coming up in September, I really need to be logging more miles.
The only downside to the trailer is that the kids aren’t at arm’s length like they are with the jog stroller, so when I have to play referee, it’s a little tougher and I find myself saying things like..
“Don’t make me stop!!”
“Do you want to go home?!”
That usually clears it up but I have gotten a couple strange looks from others as we pass. 🙂
Would I recommend the Burley D’Lite? Yes!! If it helps, it can also convert into a jog stroller.
It’s gonna get a lot of use in our house. We’re even talking about getting Scott a bike so we can take family rides. That is like the ultimate for me!

Do you have a bike trailer? How far would you take your kids?
I was given this trailer. I was not compensated and all opinions are my own.
