Doesn't matter if it's a kid's bike, a cruiser bike or an expensive mountain bike or road bike – they're all bulky and difficult to transport easily in a car. A bicycle won't fit in a back seat without removing the wheels (who wants to do that?), and it can quickly gouge your upholstery, headliner or door panels before you get where you're going. That's where bike carriers come in handy.
- Hitch racks are a secure way to haul bikes and is well-suited to SUVs, station wagons and minivans. They're easy to install (directly to your vehicle's receiver hitch), lightweight, and strong; the only real disadvantage to a hitch rack is that they make access through the hatch or tailgate difficult.
- Spare tire mounts are a great choice for SUVs and other vehicles with a rear-mounted spare. These designs usually clamp directly onto the spare tire itself, and secure the bicycles with clamps and straps. For a swing-away spare mount, it's ideal since it still allows easy access to the hatch or tailgate of an SUV.
- Trunk mounted bike carriers are perfect for sedans! They mount easily, are strong enough to support multiple bikes, and include anti-sway cradles and clamps to keep bikes securely in place. Some trunk mounted bike carriers are compatible with minivans or hatchbacks, and come with hooks for mounting on glass hatches or gate mounts.
- Truck bike racks are ideal for multiple bikes in a pickup bed, still keeping your receiver hitch freed up for towing a trailer or boat. It would seem like you can just throw bikes in the bed of a truck without worrying about them, but a truck bike rack lets you haul as many as four bikes in an upright position, without worry about damage to them.
If you're bringing the whole family along, multi bike racks are available that can safely haul as many as five bikes
! Bike travel is fun, great exercise and an excellent way to see your favorite vacation spots; when it's time to make your plans, consider getting a mountain bike rack or other style of bike carrier. They're not terribly expensive or difficult to install, and you can find bike carriers that are a great fit for your vehicle and your lifestyle!
