Request a reservationTrailers are made available on a first-come, first-served basis. Rentals are for Current San Francisco Bicycle Coalition members. Please submit this reservation request at least one week in advance for the best chance of securing your first-choice item. When borrowing the trailer, you will be asked to sign a statement that you are financially responsible for the item and all its parts should it be damaged while under your care.
Please look at your bike frame before reserving to make sure the trailer will work for you. Your chain stay should be straight across with no kinks or divots. Your chain stay needs at least one inch clearance from your spokes to fit the trailer hitch.
Please follow these tips when biking with a trailer:
- Make sure the hitch is firmly attached to your bike throughout your journey. When carrying a heavy load, your load can loosen the hitch.
- Plan on a slow ride. You'll be carrying extra weight and need to allow for increased braking distance, especially on hills.
- Allow for extra space when maneuvering because your wheelbase is now much longer.
*We can generally accommodate trailer check-out for up to 2 days, though busier times require one-day check-out. Please indicate in the 'Notes' field any special circumstances to consider.
