I'm getting ready to resume my bicycle commuting and training for my Boston to Province town ride in June with Outriders. My training partner lives in Scarborough Me & we usually do a couple of 70 rides together and hit a several of the local rail trails. I set up my Beetle with hitch and racks last weekend.

The down side of a rag top but this was the option I would use regardless. Now I have to start building my Teardrop for this car.

Hitch rack is definitely the way to go in my opinion. Has much less impact on mileage and wind noise than a roof rack and you don't have to worry about scraping your bike off on the garage door if you forget it's up there!

Those rail-mount models (that support the bike under the wheels) are nice. if I didn't have a little pick up that I could just throw bikes in the back of, that's the way I'd go...
