Five Essential Cycling Accessories For Your Subaru

We have one of the most beautiful landscapes in America right at our backdoor here in Northwest Arkansas. If you are a cyclist, the Ozarks have some of the best bike paths in the country, with diverse terrain and jaw-dropping scenery. A lot of us here at Adventure Subaru are cycling fans, and for our customers who are also happiest on two wheels, we want to share a list we have compiled of five essential cycling accessories for your Subaru.  

THULE HELIUM PRO 2: As a cycling enthusiast, you can‘t go wrong with an accessory hitch-mounted carrier for your bicycle. Thule’s Helium Pro 2 is a lightweight aluminum hitch bike rack that can secure your bicycle without damaging your bike or your Subaru. With a sleek and easy-to-use design, it makes getting out to enjoy your bike quick and easy.

THULE 232 STEP UP: Thule’s 232 Step Up Strap-On Wheel Tire Step will come in handy for sure when loading and unloading your gear, giving you a secure and useful step for easier access to gear on the roof of your Subaru. This functional wheel tire step is constructed with powder-coated steel tubing and folds flat for easy storage. Installing the Thule 232 Step Up is quick and easy, and it's especially great for taller Subaru SUVs with harder-to-reach rooflines.

THULE CANYON XT ACCESSORY CARGO BASKET: If you're traveling out of state to visit some of the spectacular bike trails in our region, you may need extra space for your gear, and a rooftop cargo carrier is a perfect solution. The Thule Canyon XT Accessory Cargo Basket is a godsend for cycling enthusiasts, providing additional storage space and secure hauling while giving you easy access to your gear. With its robust, tubular steel design, it is ideal for hauling gear you will need for your next cycling adventure.


HIGH OUTPUT ELECTRIC OUTLETS: Another great feature for any bike-centric Subaru is at least one or two high-output 12-volt DC electric outlets. One of our favorites is the Bester 150w Power Inverter 12V to 110V Voltage Converter Car Charger Power Adapter. Able to convert your car's DC output to 120-volt AC current that can run small household appliances, it's a great thing to have when you're miles from the nearest electrical outlet. With enough output to run a small air compressor for airing up tires without having to break out the old air pump or frame pump, it'll have you hitting the bike trail in no time. 


CAR SCRATCH PROTECTION FOR TRUNK BIKE RACKS: Bike racks are always handy, but over time, the hooks and straps can damage your Subaru's paint. These pads by Outdoorsy Supplies cover all metal hooks and prevent exterior paint damage when hauling your bicycle about. Made from high-quality materials, the pads are soft and flexible yet very durable, with no adhesives or permanent attachments to worry about marring your Subaru's finish. 

We hope this list of cycling accessories is helpful. And If you're ready for your next Subaru, or a first-time buyer, stop in and visit your friends at Adventure Subaru of Fayetteville and let us assist you in buying the Subaru that speaks to you and your adventurous lifestyle.
