Minoura Bike Tower

Pendle Wheel Support Bike Rack

When it comes to bombproof bike racks the Pendle wheel support rack takes some beating. We opted for the Type Approval two bike model which attaches to your car by way of a plate that bolts behind a two bolt tow bar. Each bike sits in two D-loops which hold its wheels while a vertical bar provides a fixing point for the seat tube too.

Alpkit Fat Airic

My body is definitely getting old. If it’s not, then I’m getting a lot weaker. There was a time when I’d sleep straight on the ground or with a thin Karrimat. There was a time where dossing in a phone box would do as well or the nearest gutter but time, like my hairline, moves on…
