To carry 4 bikes using a car roof bike rack, follow these steps:

1. Check Your Car’s Roof Load Capacity:

Before purchasing or installing a roof rack, ensure your car’s roof can support the combined weight of the rack and the bikes.

2. Select the Right Roof Rack System:

Choose a roof rack that is compatible with your car model. Most racks come with adjustable fittings.
Ensure the rack system can accommodate four bikes.

3. Install the Roof Rack Base:

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to securely attach the base rack to your car’s roof. This usually involves clamping the rack to the roof rails or attaching it to the car’s roof via mounting points.

Space the bikes evenly across the roof rack to maintain balance.
Position the bikes in alternating directions (one facing forward, the next facing backward) to prevent handlebar and pedal interference.

a.Be aware of the added height when driving under low bridges, entering garages, or other low-clearance areas.

9. Drive Carefully

With bikes on the roof, your vehicle’s aerodynamics and center of gravity will change. Drive more cautiously, especially in windy conditions or when taking turns.

10. Regularly Check the Rack and Bikes:

Periodically check the tightness of all mounts and straps during long trips to ensure everything remains secure.

Following these steps will help you safely and securely transport four bikes on your car’s roof.
