By the time kiddo number three starts riding bikes, planning a ride outside the confines of your neighborhood becomes a exercise in bike logistics. Save yourself the puzzle-master hassle of packing five bikes into the car with the Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack. It comes fully assembled, so it's far easier to figure out than the six-million-piece jigsaw that's packing the whole family's bikes into the hatch, and tilts back (or folds flat) via the UpperHand lever to provide easy access to the back of your vehicle and all your carefully stashed snacks. Once you've slipped the RidgeBack 5 into your 1. 25in or 2in hitch receiver, just twist the SpeedKnob to lock it in place and ensure your new rack doesn't end up as a lump of metal roadkill. When you cinch your bikes down into the anti-sway cradles with the flexible ZipStrips, they won't smash into each other or the back of your car, even when you're rallying down bumpy dirt roads. The built-in bottle opener will help you guzzle down some icy refreshment when you've reached the end of the road, or finally loaded everyone up for the five-minute drive to the closest trailhead.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
