Finding the Right Bicycle Rack: A Vacation from home shouldn't mean you have to leave your bicycle behind.

May 6, 2013

When it comes to transporting your bicycle, having a bike rack is essential - unless, of course, your bicycle folds up so you can store it in the trunk. Short of that, where do you start?

There are racks for all sorts of cars and they can carry anywhere from one to five bikes. Some racks use straps to secure it to your vehicle, while others plug into your towing hitch. So the first question you need to ask yourself is, 'how do I want this to attach to my vehicle?' You will also need to make sure the rack you choose is compatible with your vehicle.

The next question is: How many bikes do you want to carry? Are you into riding by yourself, or do you have friends and family that you prefer to ride with? More friends and family means more bikes, which generally means a bigger rack.

Finally, you will want to make sure the bike rack you are purchasing is well made. Reviews are helpful for determining the quality of a rack, and you can find some great ones at this review site.
