At Tyax Adventures we’re all about sustainability and taking an environmentally friendly approach to everything we do! We also love getting creative and recycling materials to make something new. So when we stumbled across a youtube video on how to make your own bike rack (using recycled materials!) we thought we would take the opportunity to share it with you all.

We all know that searching for the perfect bike rack can be overwhelming, expensive and sometimes frustrating so here’s your chance to perfect your own design. All you need for this bike rack is a salvaged wood pallet and a few bits of additional wood, a hammer, a saw, some nails and your innovation….and you’re ready to go!

This is a great wintertime project to get you geared up for the summer riding season! It could also look very cool in your garage or storage area.

We’d love to hear your feedback on what you think of projects like this…and of course send us some pictures of your home-made bike racks!

We think one of these racks might also look great at our backcountry camps!
