BIKE  RACK  BREAKDOWN

Central Washington State

Saturday, July 10, 2004

When I arrived at the Crow Creek Campground I walked around to the back of the van only to discover my bike rack sitting at an odd angle. Seems the bumper mount somehow came loose and was in need of some tightening. Had the mount completely failed, I wouldn't have lost the bikes. Between the 4 bungee cords holding the tarp in place as well as a chain fastened to the bikes and bumper to ensure someone else doesn't get the pleasure of riding them without my permission, I think the bikes would have stayed on just fine.
