Among the many new products launched at North America’s biggest bike expo, the Sea Otter Classic, this week is Thule’s all-new bike carrier called the Epos. This light-but-mighty hitch rack is stocked with features. It folds up into a compact transportable package, it’s fully foldable, tiltable and can carry three bikes of any discipline up to 160 pounds. Optional add-ons also include a brake light kit, a foldable ramp and straps for extra wide or beefy tires.

Anne-Marije Rook
North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
