Biking/cycling as a sport or a pastime, is growing on popularity at a fantastic rate. Cycling is a great sport to get into; you’ve got so many options open to you with where you go and what distance you cover as well as choosing a style of bike that suits your needs.
My friend and I are planning to go biking; however, he is concerned if placing his bike in the back of his car and risk damaging the upholstery or getting dirt and grease everywhere. So, if you want to go biking out in the backwoods but it’s too far from home to consider cycling there and back, get a roof rack for your car. So, what type of rack to buy? I asked some of my professional bikers advised me to choose the right roof rack for my needs. So, what are your needs with regard to bike racks? Here are some starting points to consider:
* How often will you need to use it?
* How many bikes will you want to carry?
* Will the rack need to fit different vehicles (say, for example you will need to switch one rack between two family cars)?
* Is security of the bikes and rack paramount?
* Are you able to reach a high rack to load a bike onto it?
* Is your bike pretty standard in design or something unusual such as a tandem or recumbent?
* Do you already have a towing hitch fitted to your vehicle?
* Is your vehicle an off-road type with a spare wheel mounted on the rear?
* How much money are you prepared to spend?
I checked yakima roof rack website as they offers assistance in looking for the right track. I was surprised by a full range of discounted bike racks perfect for my cars.
Now, no one can stop me and my friend from biking.
