Summer entails recreation and adventure to remote spots. Thus, there will be traffic to negotiate and highways ventured. When transporting equipment or gear atop your vehicle, there are a few tips to heed before and once you start your trip.

Bikes, Kayaks Stored Safely

  • Prior to setting off, inspect the appropriate transport rack for stability, and that components and fittings are in good working order.
  • With bike or kayak set onto rack, confirm tie-downs, clasps or hooks are all taught and secured. As well, give a slight pull or push against the gear, attesting to its stability.
  • While on the road, make a safe stop at a rest area or parking lot. Here, you'll confirm everything is still atop and secure.

It's your responsibility as a driver that nothing flies off as you transport your gear. This enables safety for all those around.
