Jim Hamrick in the Red Bay Farm forest

A bike canoe trailer is a novel but useful use of a bicycle to haul a canoe to the water.

This tongue and truck concept could also be used for other things such as hauling a small barrel of water for irrigation, a vegetable cart for neighborhood sales or just a simple box for hauling tools or groceries. The Redbay Farm bicycle canoe trailer was built for low cost using common materials. The trailer assembly has two components; a tongue and a truck.
