Transporting Your Trike or Bike

When you want to take your trike to another location so that you can ride or you have bikes that you need to transport, a trike or bike rack is a good option to look at getting. The type of rack that you get should fit your vehicle whether you’re transporting the bikes on the top or on the back. One of the first things that you need to look at from a trike or bike rack is the stability that is offered while it’s on the vehicle and while it has the bikes in place. There is always some inherent movement in a hitch rack, but it shouldn’t move back and forth excessively as this could result in the bikes coming off of the vehicle. The rack should also hold up to various types of weather as you might not always be transporting your bikes in sunny conditions.

The efficiency of the rack should be taken into consideration. You don’t want to have a rack on your car that makes it hard to load and unload your trike or bike. If you know that you’re going to be loading and unloading by yourself, then consider a trike rack that goes into a receiver hitch so that it’s a bit more convenient to use. When the rack is attached to your vehicle, make sure it has the adjustability to center the trike or bike behind the vehicle. Check to ensure that the rack is compatible with your vehicle and that it’s not too wide or too tall. When you secure your bikes, you should attach a lock of some kind to keep the bikes from being stolen.
