How To Attach A Wagon To A Bike

Most wagons designed to be towed behind a bike are outfitted with a hitch that attaches to the back axle of the bike. If your wagon doesn’t have a hitch, you can make one yourself using PVC pipe and fittings. You’ll need two 90-degree elbow joints, two T-joints, four 3/4-inch end caps, and about 2 feet of 3/4-inch PVC pipe.

Once you have all of your materials, follow these steps to attach your wagon to your bike.

  • Decide which type of wagon you would like to attach to your bike
  • Follow the instructions that come with the wagon kit to properly attach it to your bike frame
  • Make sure the wagon is securely attached before loading any items into it
  • If you will be carrying children in the wagon, make sure they are properly secured with a seatbelt or harness before starting out on your ride
