Usually, I just cycle directly from home... or my boyfriend and I load up our bikes on his bike rack and head out somewhere, but I'd like to come up with a way to transport my bike and do group rides myself with a local club. These rides are far from my home and normally happen directly after work. No time to ride there.
I drive a '96 Toyota Corolla that does NOT have a fold-down back seat. If I want to fit my bike into the trunk, both wheels must be removed. What a pain! (I have small hands and have a heck of a time with disconnecting/reconnecting the brake cables.)
Once, I saw a guy whose bike didn't quite fit into the trunk of his car, but he crammed it in as best he could and secured it with some kind of heavy duty elastic netting. I wish I had asked him how it worked. I'd like to find an easy way to transport my bike intact without buying a rack or a new car, since mine is paid off.
Is this even possible?
