Do-it-yourself projects and plans for anyone who can swing a hammer.
Bicycle riding is popular all over the country in rural, suburban and urban settings. More and more cities are recognizing the need for bike lanes and special bike paths to accommodate the growing number of cyclists.
But on occasion, there is not a safe place to ride in your community or you would like to take your bikes on the road, so to speak. In which case, you may have need of a bike rack to transport your cycle. Sure, you can buy a ready-made rooftop bike carrier, but why not save a little dough and fabricate one yourself? A bicycle is a sustainable mode of transportation and making your own bike rack from scrap material is just part of a sustainable lifestyle.
