2014 Mazda CX-5: Finally, a Bike Rack

May 20, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

The 2014 Mazda CX-5 is a well-packaged crossover SUV. Even-so, there's no way to put two bikes, four people and a bunch of gear inside for a road trip. Our solution was the Mazda Accessories trailer hitch.

It allowed the bikes to sit on a hitch-mount rack we already had. This, we're convinced, is the best way to haul bikes if you've got to do it outside the car. They're out of the path of road debris and you're probably not going to remove them by accidentally driving under something too short.
