Yakima HoldUp review
Written by Jacquelyn Farris   
Yakima HoldUpimages/YakimaLoading bikes onto a rack is such a hassle. It's so annoying that it could be the deciding factor in just not riding.

With the Yakima HoldUp hassling with the rack is no excuse to why you're sitting on the couch playing mindless video games.

The Yakima HoldUp comes slightly disassembled, but goes together easily and can be done by a novice. In fact it can be assembled solo, but having an extra hand to help would be good since some of the pieces are large and a bit heavy. But if you're a tough guy and flying solo in assemble that's just fine too.

The HoldUp comes with a cable lock that locks to the hitch pin to prevent bikes or the rack from being stolen. If you prefer your own hitch pin lock, the cable locks to the rack itself. Both options will have your rack and bikes secure. There isn't a need to worry about your steeds leaving their stable.

Thule has been manufacturing bike carriers since 1978 and one the company’s current roof top carriers is the 594XT Sidearm.

The Thule 594XT Sidearm looks like a lot of the other rooftop bike carriers. Your bike is secured to an aluminum tray by a strap for the back wheel and a hook-shaped support arm with a locking mechanism for the front tire.

Camp Woodward is a mecca for any biker. Whether it's freestyling off a vert ramp or rolling down Excedrin descends on dirt packed trails, Camp Woodward will give an adrenaline junkie a fix of jaw-dropping excitement.

Camp Woodward has state-of-art facilities which are user-friendly at their 4 locales in the U.S. A bike rack that is equally as cutting edge and easy-to-use is essential for anybody hauling their mountain or BMX bike into Camp Woodward. The Yakima HighRoller meets these requirements.
