Cycle carriers make holiday driving safer and fuel savvy

Cycle carriersWith the weather warming up and the days getting longer, the UK’s cycle routes are becoming popular once more. If you’re planning to hit the tracks, then Thule have the answers transport your bikes safely and securely.

Thule, the world’s largest manufacturer of car roof systems, roof boxes and accessories have a range of cycle carriers to transport your bikes safely, securely and with minimal affect on fuel economy.

Peter Barker, UK General Manager at Thule said: “Thule invests a great deal in product research and design so that our brand lives up to its reputation for quality and reliability. We know people spend a great deal of time and money on purchasing their bikes and a Thule cycle carrier provides reassurance that they are using the safest equipment to transport kit on their vehicles.”

Using a tow bar mounted cycle carrier and transporting your bikes on the back of your vehicle is one way of reducing wind resistance when driving with a car loaded up with holiday gear.

The EuroClassic G5 has become a firm favourite amongst the public and cycling press, due to its tilt function which allows easy access to the car boot. With the ability to carry up to four bikes, the EuroClassic G5 is popular with families as well as cycle teams.

The two-bike, Thule Xpress 970 is also popular due to its folding function. The carrier can be collapsed conveniently into a neat bag in the car boot when not in use, ready for your next outing. With minimal wind resistance leading to good fuel economy, the Xpress 970 is perfect for packing up your bikes for a cycling break.

All Thule cycle carriers come with a five year warranty.
