Long known as the worldwide leader in child bicycle trailers, for more than 35 years Burley have made it a priority to deliver the absolute best in quality, durability and safety. They put our heart and soul into every trailer they make, because that's just how they do business.
In the 1970's, Alan Scholz started a business called Burley Bike Bags - a company inspired by his wife "Burley Bev," a local Oregon bike racer. The couple sold their bags at Eugene's Saturday Market, a 30-mile commute from their home. Determined to live a car-free life, Alan built a strong, durable, safe trailer to transport his young daughter and the Burley bags to the Market (his first trailer was actually built from old swing-set parts). It wasn't long before people were asking to buy a trailer like Alan's. Then, bike shops in Eugene started to carry the Burley trailers. The market for Burley trailers grew rapidly and today the name "Burley" is synonymous with "bicycle trailers."
2015 marked Burley's 35th anniversary of designing and manufacturing the safest bike trailers. They continue to perfect Alan's invention with passion, drive and dedication. That's why Burley is known for making the safest, most durable trailers on the road.
The Burley future is bright with a worldwide distribution network and products that are well respected for their manufacturing quality and exceptional safety. The Burley brand stands for unmatched quality today, just as it did in 1978.
