Intro from West Texas

My wife and I are in our 50s and decided to vary our exercise by getting some bikes. We purchased Trek Navigator 100 men's and womam's. We have a Yamika terrigate hitch mount but the bikes don't sit very straight on them and I'm thinking we need something like a Yamika Hookup.

Fall, winter and spring are good riding weather in West Texas but summer gets too hot.

It doesnt matter how the bike sits on the rack as long as it sits. Just take the bikes off and ride. When its hot, take plenty to drink and enjoy the scenery. Dont try and set any "personal best" times.
