This May, we’re celebrating National Bike Month, and what better way than to throw your bike in the bed of your pickup and head out to tackle some of the toughest biking trails around. Need a new way to tote your bike from trail to trail? Don’t break the bank—think about shopping for a used truck or SUV.
These babies won’t only help you out during your biking adventures all May; they’ve got the strength and towing capacity to help you have fun all spring and summer long, whether you are going boating or camping, or just need extra cargo space for a family road trip. For full-size pickups, Edmunds recommends a used Ford F-150, but if you want to go with the king of large SUVs, you can’t go wrong with a pre-owned Chevrolet Tahoe.
And before you head out to tear up the trails and roadways in your bike, make sure you know these basic safety rules:
- Ride with traffic, not against.
- Wear the proper protective gear, especially a helmet.
- Make yourself visible to drivers by wearing bright clothing and by signaling your intentions.
