WITH the end of the third and hopefully final lockdown, thoughts are turning to holidays and for many this will mean a staycation in the UK.
This could be a visit to the coast, perhaps the countryside or even a city break. You may be thinking that you want to take your bikes with you, but don’t know where to start in terms of transporting them?
Well, rest assured that BAS can provide you with everything you need to make this possible and it really is easier than you think!
There are three main types of cycle carriers: roof-mounted, towbar mounted and boot mounted. For each type of cycle carrier, there are numerous options to suit all budgets and requirements. There are carriers available that will hold between two and four bikes, so you can choose the best option for you and your family. For the towbar mounted carriers, there are also versions that tilt to allow access to the boot, whilst the carrier is in use.
If you think a towbar mounted bike carrier would be the best option for you, but you don’t currently have a towbar fitted, this isn’t a problem as BAS has been supplying and fitting towbars for over 40 years. Fitting is available at both our workshop in Warrington and as a mobile service, so it can be completed at your home or place of work and most towbars only take half a day or less to be fitted.
We have a fully stocked showroom located at Cyclehouse in Warrington (behind the rugby stadium), so you can come in and have a look for yourself. One of the friendly members of staff will be able to offer lots of advice and guidance, making sure that you get the right product for you.
Also, did you know that Cyclehouse is one of the country’s largest specialised electric bike retailers? In the last couple of years, there has been a huge boom in the sales of electric bikes and there are many reasons for this. Electric bikes are ideal if you are not quite as fit or as active as you used to be, allowing you to still enjoy the freedom and benefits that cycling brings. They are also great for those killer hills, just to give you that extra boost! We also offer three different carriers which are suitable for electric bikes, so we’ve got you covered if you wanted to take them with you on your staycation.
Come and visit us at our showroom at Cyclehouse or you can contact the office on 01925 640730 or visit www.basnw.co.uk to find out more.
