With Spring and Summer on its way, many families are looking for ways to get outside, enjoy the nice weather, but still be with their families!
I have the perfect solution for families who want to stay active this summer: the Schwinn Trailblazer Bicycle Trailer.
Taking it on the road has never been easier thanks to a little help from Schwinn, the original family bike company. The company's speedy, lightweight Trailblazer double bicycle trailer is fast on the setup and easy to hitch, making it a breeze to haul your kids on a ride through the country or a trip to the farmer's market.
The Trailblazer is equipped with a lightweight aluminum frame that provides plenty of space for each child, along with fast-rolling 20-inch wheels. The trailer's universal coupler is just as well conceived, with a design that attaches quickly and easily to most bikes. And once you arrive at your destination, you can convert the trailer into a stroller in mere seconds. Other details include a zippered weather shield that provides extra protection in poor weather, a quick-release wheel design for easy storage; and a total capacity of 100 pounds and two children.

My OpinionMy husband and I have ALWAYS wanted a bike trailer because one of our favorite activities in the summer is bike riding. With two children (soon!) we needed a double bike trailer and we SO EXCITED to have this Schwinn Trailblazer Double Bike Trailer so we can go on bike rides with both kids!
The bike trailer has some really great features that make this trailer unique.
The first great feature is the back window that can either be zipped up to keep it warmer in the trailer for the children (great for early spring weather or cooler fall weather) or opened up to let the breeze blow through to cool it down in hotter weather. It only attaches by little bands so I hope it will hold during rides, but so far it has!
I love the nice big windows on both sides that allows the children to see what is outside.
It also has a nice big front window. Once again, I love that it can either be a screen for hotter weather and allow the breeze to blow through or you can pull out the full plastic window out of the nice little storage pouch on top and keep it warmer inside.
Here is how a single rider sits.
Here is how double riders sit.
One of the best parts of this trailer is that it can be used as bike trailer OR stroller.
Here is the trailer as a stroller with the single front wheel on it.
I noticed while using it as a stroller that it is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. Unfortunately, the front wheel wiggles a lot and makes A LOT of noise and it gets to be really annoying. However, the trailer is easy to tip up and just push on the back wheels and it fixes that problem. I just wish the front wheel was a little more stable. We will probably be using this primarily as the bike trailer, so I won't even have to worry about that most of the time.
To transition from stroller to bike trailer is super easy and I love that! You just simply take off the front wheel and easily attach the attachment to the back wheel of any bike (there is one simply part to attach with a wrench the very first time). It is super easy to switch between stroller and bike trailer and that makes it great for going to the zoo, going on walks on the beach, and going anywhere where you need to bike there and then walk with the stroller!
Here is the bike trailer attached to the bike! It moves really easily in all directions that a bike can go and it feels really stable. I have never worried about the trailer flipping or being unstable.
If you are looking for a great way to stay active this summer and give your children a great ride, you really need to check out the Schwinn Trailblazer Bicycle Trailer! I know we are definitely going to enjoy using it!!
