Having spent most of 2013 discovering the joy of running, my 10 year old son was very keen that I also rediscover the joy of bike riding; something I hadn’t done since I was around his age.
He is one of those kids that just lives on his bike. He is happiest flying along at breakneck speed with the wind in his, um, helmet. My 8 year old daughter had never mastered the art of riding (although our younger two love it) and I realised that the best way to help her find that confidence was to get out there and try it myself.
What do you know, riding is awesome! Sure my bum hurt like nothing else for days after my first real ride, and I’m still adjusting to the different muscles being used, but it is just so much fun! And a much more pleasant an activity on a hot day than running, in my experience so far.
The thing is when you have a household full of bike riders (which is of course excellent) that you also need a way to store those bikes. Whilst we live on acreage and have lots of space, I really like things to look neat and pretty as well. Then I was introduced to BikeRax.
Talk about ticking all my boxes!
With options for storing one, two or three bikes, BikeRax are beautiful, clever and functional. They are also an Australian business that manufacture here as well which is something I’m keen to support.
Assembly takes minutes from the flatpack BikeRax arrive in, and you’re then able to place it wherever you desire. We have ours under the verandah, but I can see it would also be a very handy setup in a smaller space within an apartment or similar.
Our TriRax currently houses my bike, my husband’s bike and my big girl’s bike just fits as well. The Rax aren’t actually designed to hold kids’ bikes, but this is something they are working on for release in the future so I will be watching out for those too!
