Yesterday I was trying to tidy up the space in the garden where we put our garden equipment and other things.
Just before it started to rain I found a black thing, but I didn't know what it was so I put it at a dry place and left it there.
In the evening I asked one of my sons and it turned out it was one of those hitch bike racks that can be fastened to the backside of the car.
Because they went away to an event in the woods with several cars last weekend and their luggage was spread over all the cars, he had two racks in the back of his car.
He found that out when he was already here to bring the car, so he put the rack in the garden. He planned to call his friend to tell him to ask me for it.
Not very clever without telling me.
We often use our rack.
One of the girls needs to go to balletlessons in the evening and there's not always someone available to bicycle back home with her. In that case one of my sons fetches her at the balletschool, puts the bicycle at the back of the car on the rack and drives her home within 10 minutes. It saves a lot of time and energy, which is especially important at days when she has to make her homework.
And it's safe.
We're happy we decided to buy the rack. We bought it online and we never regretted we did.
