My new bike carrier

We are getting ready to head to Minocqua, WI for our extended family vacation that we take every other. The whole clan will be there. Well, I started cycling just over 2 years ago and last time we went I had a hard time figuring out how to carry our bikes up there as we have a hitch rack to carry bikes that won’t work when we are dragging the boat along. Two years ago I ended up just tossing the bikes in the bottom of the boat and hoping for the best. Weeeelll since I bought my new (more expensive) road bike I really did not want it to be rattling around with three other bikes in the bottom of the boat. Sooooo, I built myself some fork mount racks with a couple of 2×4’s and fork mounts that could be screwed into the 2×4’s. Now all of the bikes are just standing up so nicely ready to be transported safely to our destination! YAY! Here is what it looks like. Ain’t it pretty :D
