Since it is the 1st day of daylight savings and the official start of my bicycle season. I installed the trailer hitch on my Bug and mounted the bicycle rack. Its just about that time of year.

Very nice! Way easier and faster than monkeying with a bunch of straps.

And holy crap, where's all of your snow?!

I do commute to work 23 miles each way but I typically drive in Monday and home on Friday. I leave my car at work during the week. Sometimes I need to use it for business & just in case of emergency.

Yup, most all that snow is gone. This is the 1st time I was really glad to see it go.

Sometimes I like to take my friends bike and mine to different rail trails around New England to train for our century rides.

Looking for a rack for my Forester. Can you tell me which model this is. Looks perfect for my bike.

Not sure, but it looks identical to the Yakima rack my parents use, and they took their bikes from NY to FL with no issues. Just look for the Yakima two bike hitch rack.
