Thrifty Thursday-Easy Bike Rack

We enjoy going for bike rides as a family.
We have a small pickup truck,
but no bike rack.
We would just lay them on top of each other
with a couple of sheets between them
to keep them from getting scratched up.

Until now.
Big K put on his thinking cap
and repurposed an unused pallet.
The guy's a genius when it comes to stuff like this.
McGyver ain't got a thing on him!

He split the pallet apart and just reorganized the boards.  
A bit of renailing

It usually lays flat in the bed of the truck,
but when in use, it is leaned up against the back of the bed.

The two bigger bikes fit in the outside slots
with Lil' Guy's in the middle.

One ratchet strap across the front holds them all in place
as we make our way to our destination.

Ready to ride!!!
