Are you looking for a quality cycle carrier you can fit quickly, easily and safely to your vehicle?
Whatever type of car or van you drive, Northwest Towbar Centre can kit you out with the most suitable bike carrier for your needs and taste. Having a bike carrier that feels secure, is easy to connect to your tow bar and is quick to load and unload will make a huge difference to the quality of your next bicycle holiday.
Why choose a towbar bicycle rack?
Towable cycle carriers are not the only way of transporting bicycles by road but, in our experience, they are faster and easier to fit and use than other methods. Most importantly, they are the safest option.
Whether you need to carry mountain bikes, road bikes or a combination, Northwest Towbar Centre will have a selection of towbar bike racks you can choose from - and at a sensible price.
How to source the best towbar cycle carriers
To take out the guesswork from choosing a safe, simple to fit cycle carrier for your family, we feature only the top brands on our website. These include Thule, Pendle, Witter, Maypole and MaxxRaxx - all of which are respected in the industry for the quality of their cycle carriers.
For your convenience, our online store includes several filter options, enabling you to narrow down bike racks by capacity, brand, price and even colour.
How do towbar cycle carriers work?
You can basically divide towable cycle carriers into two main types: those that you hang your bikes from (hang on bike racks) and platforms that you use to stand your bikes on (platform cycle carriers). You can source both types from our online store.
Apart from the basic type and price, there are a number of other factors you will need to consider before buying a cycle carrier but don't worry, we can advise you all the way.
For example, you will need to think about the maximum number of bikes you want to be able to transport compared to your vehicle's load capacity. The style and tow bar mounting of the cycle carrier is also important as this can affect access to the boot and compliance with the rules of the road (e.g. keeping your lights and registration plate visible). Some racks come with ingenious tilting mechanisms for improved access while others require no tools to fit to your vehicle.
Accessories for cycle carriers
The Northwest Towbar Centre also supplies a wide range of accessories for bike carriers. For example, for some bike carriers you may need a lightboard (a lighting system that connects to your towbar power socket). From ramps and wheelbags to locks and adapters, if it is related to bike carriers, we can supply it. As with our bike racks, accessories can be filtered by price.
