There's few investments that will deliver so much than a quality car bike rack.
If you're a cyclist, you already know the pleasures and advantages of bike riding. Biking is an excellent way to lose weight, or more importantly to maintain once you've lost that weight. And it's also a most enjoyable way to see the sights of a city. But biking is a lot more enjoyable if you can get out to the parks or out into the suburbs where you can enjoy the quiet of nature.
The whole wide world is before you - at least, the parts of it that you can reach with your car. You can get out to the trails in the mountains, woods, or even on the beaches. It's something that's also very nice to do while camping to different places. If you're going on a long distance journey, you'll need to transport your bikes somehow, and the perfect way to do that is with a car bike rack.
You've spent a lot of money on your bike - whether it's one designed to take you over on roads, or one designed to take you careening down mountain trails - and you don't want it damaged or scratched before you even get it out onto the trails.
You've also spent a lot of money on your car, truck or SUV, and you don't want that unnecessarily scratched, or stained with dirt or grease, and so, you need to invest in a car bicycle rack as well.
The Car Bike Carrier for Every Vehicle
There is a bike rack out there that will fit any car, truck, SUV or RV.
There are three types of bike rack on the market. The most common rack you see is the rear-mounted rack, which is attached to the trunk of your car. This type of rack generally only holds up to 3 bicycles.
Also available is the hitch rack, sometimes called the receiver rack. This type of car bike rack fits over your car hitch, which keeps the bikes further away from your trunk, and you can possibly carry up to five bicycles.
Those two racks are the most popular, but some people worry about being rear-ended in an accident, which would, of course do a considerable amount of damage to their bicycles. So they elect to get a roof rack.
The roof rack, also called a top rack, is just what it seems - a rack that fits on the top of your car. Bikes are safer up there if you're afraid of a casual fender bender. But you do have to have the strength to lift the bike up or down from its perch.
There are so many styles of car bike racks, so many manufacturers of quality, that you'll be sure to find something that fits your needs at the price you can afford, and it will protect your investments in car and bike as well. So don't delay, go out and get a car bike rack today!
