How to Carry a Bicycle on a Bikes At Work Trailer Using the Plywood Rack
Someone recently asked us if it is possible to carry a bicycle using our plywood rack. He had planned to purchase a plywood rack to carry plywood, but didn't want to order a bicycle rack to carry bicycles if it wasn't necessary. I had not considered this before, so I did a quick test using our old shop trailer and one-half of a plywood rack set.
It turns out that, yes, you can! The photos below show how the upright on the plywood rack is in just the right position for supporting a bicycle.
There are a few things to remember if you plan to do this:
- If you are carrying one one bicycle, the trailer will be loaded asymmetrically and therefore prone to roll over if you are not careful. It is best to carry something beside it like a tool box to balance the weight distribution
