Traveling with a bike by car

Going on a long trip, it’s nice to have the opportunity to take a bicycle with you, so that far from home you will not deny yourself this useful and sporting pleasure.

Traveling with a bike by car
Thus there is a need to choose a suitable mount for the bike on the car. The issue is especially acute if there are several well-people in the company and you need to carry at least two bicycles.

Modern mounts for bicycles solve this problem quickly, reliably, and fairly inexpensively. Once you choose the most suitable mount, you get the opportunity to take a bicycle with you everywhere. The most advanced fastening systems allow you to go with bicycles even abroad, fully complying with the rules of the road and elementary safety.

What is the bike carrier
The type of bike fixation system depends on the location of the car to which your two-wheeled vehicle is attached. Also the fastening method itself matters. The choice of a suitable fixation should be based not only on your preferences, and even not on financial possibilities, but primarily on the design of your car.

What kind of bike mount can be on a car:
on the roof;
on the tow bar;
on the rear door / trunk lid;
on the wheel of an SUV.
Let’s deal with each of them.

Roof lock
The easiest and most popular way is to transport a bicycle on the roof of a car. In this case, a prerequisite is the presence on the roof of the base trunk in the form of two transverse crossbars.

Simultaneous installation from one to four mounts on the roof is allowed. The use of such an attachment requires care when driving: do not exceed a speed of 120 km / h, and also remember that the height of the car has increased by at least a meter.

Fixing the tow bar
Suitable for transportation from 2 to 4 bicycles. There is a fixation on the tow bar of two types – suspension and platform.

The first option is easier, cheaper, suitable for close travel. The wheels of the bike hang in the air, and he himself is not secured only with straps, without a lock. The second is optimal for long journeys, reliable and meets the standards of traffic rules.

Lock on the back door
This also includes the mount on the rear trunk lid of your car. This is the best way for car owners without a tow bar, which is uncomfortable to throw a heavy bike on the roof of the car.

Such fastenings are special and versatile. The first ones are selected individually for each car and do not limit access to the luggage compartment. The latter are cloth belts that fit any passenger car without a spoiler. Require periodic suspenders.

As for the fourth type of fixation – on the spare wheel of an SUV, it is quite rare, requires a wheel free of the casing, and allows for no more than two bicycles at the same time.
