About Us

Since 1976 CycleTote has been a family-owned business sharing our love and knowledge for bicycling and the outdoors through our hand-built bicycle trailers.

Hand made in Colorado

Every one of our trailers is individually hand-made in our workshop in Fort Collins, Colorado, our home for thirty years.

The CycleTotes you see are built  using technical expertise in metalworking, sewing, and fabrication. Embedded in all the tubing, fabric, and moving parts lies our passion as bike people who truly understand and constantly seek ways of improving our trailers to provide the best experience.

Aligning a trailerWe have selectively adopted some of the advances of the past forty years in bicycle trailer technology, materials, and engineering.  New wheel sizes, tire offerings, and ride-assist systems such as inertial brakes, are available as options.

Some features, such as our original frame and hitch designs, have remained largely unchanged so that we can continue to deliver the hallmark combination of stability, efficiency, versatility, and ruggedness that CycleTotes are renowned for.

Our commitment to quality, service, and reliability is now serving you, our next generation of customers.

There are few experiences that compare to being on a bike under the open sky and feeling the freedom of moving through the air.

As bike people, we love demonstrating and encouraging others to live life at the speed of bike with products and ways that re-think, re-define, and replace traditional means of hauling and transportation.

In addition to bringing to our own presence to the industry and community, we partner with like-minded stewards including the following organizations:

ClimateWise, a Fort Collins-based network of businesses dedicated to improving operational efficiency impacting bottom lines, the environment, and quality of life. Public recognition, technical assessment and assistance, education, and networking opportunities help participants fulfill their leadership and social responsibility roles.
