I think anyone handy could probably make a one-off lightweight trailer to be pulled by a bicycle.. if they so desired. Where everything starts going sideways is no one tows an empty trailer. By time you add cooking equipment, food and clothes and depending on how long you wish to be out... the weight can go way up. Unless you want to wear the same socks and underwear for days

For me, this is the main reason I ride, and prefer mountain biking. I do it for the exercise and to get places, but mostly for the thrill. Mind you, I am a young 'un around here at 57, but I still love riding the mountain trails, the hard climb up, to earn the thrill of blasting the downhills. I do enjoy road riding too, as it is a great way to see things, while covering more ground easier than walking. Other than downhill, mountain biking offers little speed, and even then while bombing through trees, the speed is not super high, but boy, does it feel like it.

Okay, this has got the spring bug going even more than the though of pulling the trailer out of its winter resting spot.

Jim,

Most of us spend most of our time traveling by car or truck, practical enough for most schedules and distances.

On occasion I have traveled by other modes, bike, foot train on some of my everyday routes. The amazing part to me is how different the trip can be when only the method of transportation is changed. Pace and position can dramatically change what you see as you travel.

I once took a train trip down a road I had driven 100s of times, the rail was 100 to 200 yards from the road but it was like being transported to a new place. The tracks traveled between the road and a river. I had paddled that river, again another view changed by the pace and needs of the canoe.

I like new situations, just like new people, little chances to broaden and consider new ways, new views.

When changing the pace of travel, I also think there's an internal change, a change in how time flows, better yet how I perceive it flowing. We sometimes geocache. I like it because it takes you down someone else's path, at a slow pace looking for someone's hiding place.

I like these little 'change ups', explorations of possibilities.

Very true on how the mode of transportation changes the perspective on what you see. With a car, you travel fast, and have to follow the road for the most part, often missing things in between, BUT you do get to make it to places that riding a bike would take forever on. On the other siding of riding a bike is walking, as to more easily get to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

This is why I still enjoy outdoor pursuits, and as I age mostly canoeing. I have seen thousands of square miles of some of the most gorgeous country, that a car, or even a bike, could never make it in to see.

I think for the most part, as long as one is exploring, by any means of transport, though the perspective is different, all is good.
