There comes a time in every cyclist’s life when it simply won’t do to stroll out of your front door, sit upon your saddle, and ride on out. At some point you’re going to want to head a little further afield and if you don’t have space in the boot, you’ll be looking to invest in a cycle carrier.
In effect there are three main types of carrier: the rear door cycle carrier which clips around your boot lid and rests on the rear of your car, the roof rack which attaches to roof bars of your vehicle, and the towbar mounted cycle carrier which can either fit on the towbar or towball. All products are passed through vigorous quality and testing conditions.
Finally, your last consideration has to be how many bikes you are planning to transport with you. Roof racks are great for quickly loading one or two bikes or, if your roof is large enough, you can transport up to four cycles. As they can be a difficult to reach and if you’re challenged with height, towbar mounted and rear door mounted cycle carriers are your answer.
If you already have a towbar fitted to your vehicle and need to transport your bikes, towbar mounted cycle carriers are your perfect choice. Whether you are taking 1 bike on your travels or 4, cycle carriers are your product of choice.
Do you prefer roof boxes or roof mounted cycle carriers? Transporting your bikes for a holiday with roof mounted cycle carriers makes accessing the boot a lot easier, other cycle carriers can cause an obstruction.
If you need to transport your bikes with you on a country bike ride or a holiday and you don't have roof bars or a towbar fitted, then a door mounted cycle carrier is your perfect answer.
