Cars that cyclists like. And two that don’t look so good.

It has pained me, this past summer, to find myself needing a car to transport bikes hither and yon for shows and exhibits.

As the time drew near, I was frantically searching through the Zip Car options for cars that looked like they’d hold a few bikes.  I ended up Zip-car-renting a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.  Plenty of room for a trike and two bikes, plus all the gear for an exhibit.  And kind of a sweet ride as well, I will admit.

I did a little research on-line and put together this list of cars that cyclists seem to like.  I’d be happy to update it with your favorite, should you care to send it to me.
