As my daughter has just started to ride her bike without stabilisers I am forced to take her bike everywhere we go now. Normally it sits in the boot no problem but as we are off on holiday soon the dog will take up the boot and leaving the bike at home is not an option.

I want to get a tow bar cycle carrier, even if it's just for one trip, and the Thule ones say they can be "levered forward" to allow access to the boot when fitted.

Has anyone got one to confirm this is true?

Failing that can anyone recommend a towbar cycle carrier?
