Bicycles already do a lot to make your life easier. They can help you get out of traffic jams while everyone else sits frustrated in their cars. They can cut out or seriously cut down on your gasoline expenses each month. They can give you exercise and enjoyment at the same time so that you never get burned out on the experience of riding. But did you know that bike racks can add to the easiness of life tenfold? Whether you are purchasing a trailer hitch for your bike or rooftop car racks, you can benefit from bike racks in each of the following ways:
Grab and Go
It used to be in the old days that you would have to disassemble your bike in order to take it with you on road trips. This usually consisted of removing wheels from chassis for easier storage, thus giving you something that you didn’t look forward to both before leaving for and after arriving to your destination. As the technology for bike racks continued to improve, it became possible to easily install your bike to the rack and take it with you wherever you wanted to go. This “grab and go” mentality tore down the mental roadblocks to riding your bicycle and made it a pastime instead of a chore.
Added space and ease of travel
Whether using the rooftop or the trailer hitch, another area where having your own bike rack has helped is in the area of added space, which also adds to your ease of travel. Wherein you used to have to share your space with the bike and your other travelers, thus significantly cutting down on transport, today you can take family picnics or vacations with your bike(s) in tow. Exercise, togetherness, and the room to make it all happen. That’s probably the best case for why bicycle racks can truly make your life, and the lives of all you love and care about, easier.
