The Bike Geek: Burley Travoy

Hello fellow bike commuters! Did you miss your Monday Bike Geek fix? Me too, but I had a very busy weekend and I was not able to write my weekly post. Let’s just hope that I still have a “job” at BikeCommuters.com (who are we kidding, I effin’ run the show here!)

So the unofficial start of summer is here and two of the things that are on my bucket list is to do a bicycle camping trip and learn to play golf. Well Burley is one of those companies that is well known for their trailers (they did have bitchin’ tandems years ago) so they sent a Burley Travoy to fulfill that bike-camping dream of mine.

This thing is freaking awesome, it folds so it is out of the way if you live in a Condo and it is very sturdy once it is fully erect. It comes with a tote bag with neat little tie downs, quick release bicycle attachment, 12 inch wheels and it carries up to 60 lbs. I’ve been planning a small trip to a camping ground 23 miles away from where I work so stay tuned for that adventure in the near future.

In the meanwhile, what to do with the Travoy? Well, since I started learning how to hit that little white ball, I figured that I can ride my bike to my always crowded golf range and when the time comes, I can use the Travoy to haul my golf clubs around! Pretty neat, eh.

    Love it! I have been joking around that I would love to be able to ride my bike with my clubs to the range. My question is…Do you have to purchase the bag that the golf bag sits in separately or is that the bag the trailer came in?

    Thanks for the review.

    Yes, the Travoy comes with that nifty bag and my golf bag fit perfectly!
