    Advice: Any edugeekers carry bikes on your car...

    Hi Guys..

    I need your advice if you carry bikes on the back of your cars.

    Basically i need to know if the attached images are legal or not? I will be carrying 3 full suspension bikes about 60 miles to dalby forest area for a week and i dont want to get pulled by the coppers.

    I know i will need a number plate as you can definately not see the original plate but i dont have a tow bar of the electrics and i dont know what other options i have got.

    Please help

    Thanks

    Tim

    If your lights and / or number plate is / are even partially obscured then you'll need a board with lights and your number plate on. I got stopped a couple of years back and now have roof mounted bike racks.

    Halfords do a cheap light & number plate board that's easy to wire into your car electrics. Thule do a kit that includes like a shelf for around £160.
