I currently do runs for leisure and fitness and tend to do 20/40 mile rides from home but would like to sometimes start further afield - what carriers do you recommend and why?

Thanks in anticipation.
......heading for the box, but not too soon I hope!

    presume you mean car racks etc?

    What are you going to be putting it on?

    Hatch back, saloon, estate? something with a tow bar?, roof rack?

    I have an 'xrack3' for putting my bikes inside my hatchback, Golf,
    These guys have it nailed, I use it for fettling, and storage, as well
    as transport, my pal has a rack as well so that we can transport 2 bikes
    side by side. This means the bikes aren't visible, are easy to get in and out,
    I can also do minor adjustments pre-ride if necessary.
    They are safe and secure in the car, if you need a 'pee' stop on the way home,
    and the way fuel prices are going, there is no loss of fuel economy, as the is
    with a roof or back car mounted carriers.
    Check out there is a picture of 2 road bikes inside a hatchback
    a 'Nissan Almera' I believe.
