Cycling is the ‘new’ sport for everyone, in fact cycling has been around for very many years but has found new lease of life, and with it the need to carry bikes to the place that one wants to ride around. There is a whole world of places to go with bikes, from the high street to nearby countryside, from further afield within the United Kingdom to the Continent of Europe that is so accessible thanks to the Channel Tunnel and a flotilla of ferries.

Deciding how to carry one’s bikes is important from an insurance perspective, for safety’s sake, and accessibility point of view. How many bikes have to be carried, how far, on the roof or at the rear of a car, do you have a larger vehicle: a caravan camper say when a different fitting may be required? Planning the bike rack is important, people using a ferry or the Channel may need to advise travel companies about the combined height of the vehicle.

Getting the right Cycle carrying racks.
