Mountain biking is a very exciting activity, and lots of people do bike runs in the mountains.
Here are 4 reasons why you need to rent a car for a bike run.
1. Cars can be used to carry the bike:
If you want to go for a bike run in the mountains, you will need to get up the mountain if you are riding down and for this, you will not want to exhaust all your energy walking with your bike to the top of the mountain. You need a car to carry the bike to your desired altitude so you can ride down and ask a friend or a partner to help you drive the car down. When you are renting a car, make sure that you rent the ones that have hitch-mounted carriers so you can hang your bicycle on the hitch while you drive up the mountain. If you do not like cars with hitch-mounted carriers, you can rent cars with a large space that will accommodate the bicycle.
2. Cars allow you to bring along other items:
When you are going for a bike run in the mountains, you know that a bike is not all you need. You need other items – your dress, water, food supplies, helmets, gloves, etc. Also, you might not be the only one going for the bike run, you might be going with a friend or a family member or members, you will need to convey yourself, your gears, the people following you, and their gears (if they have any). You cannot convey all these people and things with your bike alone, so you will need to rent a car for that purpose.
3. Cars help you to save fuel:
Cars will help you save up on the cost of climbing the mountain. If you drive your bike up the mountains, you might exhaust your fuel supply because bikes have a small engine and so their fuel tanks are small. The fuel in the tanks will not be sufficient enough to climb up a mountain and descend that mountain. So you need a car to drive up the mountain, then you can use the bike to ride down. If you also want to do your bike run from high up the mountain, you should know that climbing the mountain requires horsepower which a bike cannot generate, without burning so much fuel, leaving you with little or nothing at the beginning of your run.
4. Cars allow you to transport your crew:
Mountains bikers do not ride alone, yeah? They like to ride in groups and these groups do not meet on the mountain unless they all have cars which they can use to climb. The group rented a car and used it to carry their gears up the mountain.
You need a car to go up the mountain for a bike run because waking up with your bike will get you exhausted before the run and riding your bike will get your bike exhaust. So you need a car to preserve your strength and that of your bike.
