Bike Rack

So far, most of the campgrounds have been too hilly to enjoy riding the bikes. When we did take the bikes, the storage space in the bed of the truck was compromised. None of the commercial bike racks met my needs of cheap and clear of the Caboose, so I had to make my own. This rack uses a scaffolding of 2x4 lumber to support some off-the-shelf bike stands held on with u-bolts. I'll be testing it out with a drive to the police station for new bicycle licenses.

The bikes need good lashing or they bounce out of the wheel pockets and flop around.
