Buyer's Guide to Car Racks
One of the most frequent questions we get here at Basically Bicycles is “How do I put that recumbent bike on my car?” Although most recumbent bikes will fit on traditional style racks, some racks are better suited for recumbent bikes than others. We carry many racks that are well-suited for recumbent bicycles and trikes.
Check out the Basically Bicycles buyer's guide to car racks for an overview of rack types and tips on how you can take your recumbent bike or trike with you.

Our Daily Cycling Tip
Wear, Don’t Carry, Your Helmet – While you may see cyclists riding with their helmets stylishly hung from their handlebars or backpacks, we strongly recommend keeping yours on your head every time you ride. This is important because accidents are called that for a reason. Even though you may think you’re safe riding down a quiet path or deserted trail, all kinds of things can go wrong — and when danger strikes, you may have no control over what happens. That’s why it’s smart to always keep your helmet on your head where it belongs. Besides, if you hang it from the bars, it could actually cause a crash by distracting you or even by falling off and into the front spokes.
