    Spend several weeks away at a time so have mountain bikes, tandem and motorbike with our caravan, plus looking at folders for when we fly abroad.

  2. Dan C says:

    I have a Mazda bongo and need a bike rack for my two mountain bikes. Anyone out there can recommend a good rack/design of a carrier? I have a tow hitch and have seen these designs that fit onto the hitch mount, so the rear door can still be accessed without lifting all the bikes off. If anyone has any input, or ownership of such a design I would be keen to hear of it.

  3. Dennis says:

    I take my electric mountain bike and my wife takes her electric trike, which is unusual in it’s self as it has 2 front wheels and 1 rear wheel.

  4. Alan B says:

    Only 3 of us travelling (2 adults, 1 child), but 4 bikes, 3 mountain bikes for family rides. I also take my road bike for solo rides around new areas.

  5. David Peters says:

    We always take 2 hybrid type bikes for our holidays. We use them to get about and leave our motorhome on site. Brilliant as we see more of the locality and after riding a great reason for a cold beer and cake in the local café!

  6. Chris L says:

    Depends where we go & how long for but, if we do take them we take a folding electric bike and a folding trike along with a doggy hut.

  7. Peter Birch says:

    Entered other as we carry two freego electric folding bikes on the back of a Burstner 681, ideal way of getting about.

  8. Michael says:

    One electric folding
    One road folding
    On each trip

  9. Paul Gleave says:

    Voted other as I carry a folding electric, brilliant to ride and fits under the bed in my Adria Twin.

  10. Graham Round says:

    For us pensioners it is a great way to get around without moving the moterhome.
    We also tow our 2 small dogs in a doggy hut, they love it

  11. Fraser Gill says:

    We’d be stuck without them. Last year we did hundred of miles on our hybrids. Sturdy, good for road and tracks. Panniers for our shopping and picnics.
    We are fortunate that we are able to get out on them, but might consider electric in future. In France last year it was great to see how many people had them.

  12. BoB says:

    Depends on where we go. 2 mountain bikes or 2 folding bike or 1 of each. Fife coastal path for example folding bikes are ideal. The highlands of Scotland or forest areas MTBs are more suited.
