Common Questions

GOLFING WITH A BIKE

What are the criteria for acceptable bicycle use on golf courses?

Depending on the course conditions, a bike with 3-inch wide tires should not cause any damage. However, a bike with 2-inch tires on a soft course may be restricted to formed paths only.

How much of a reduction in playing time can a golf bike provide?

With no player ahead of you, we anticipate there would be a timesaving of about 25%.

What type of bike is best suited for mountain golf?

An electric bike is probably the most appropriate when playing mountain golf. For 90% of the holes of mountain golf, an ordinary bike will be sufficient - where there are slopes of 5 degrees and more, some special manoeuvres may be required – and always remember to wear a helmet.

For example, on the 5% downhill slopes, riding downhill will control your speed very easily.

For the 5% uphill slopes, zigzagging up the slopes will allow you to climb the slopes more easily. For slopes that are impossible to climb on a bike due to a too steep grade, the option of walking alongside the bike will provide an alternative similar to playing with a golf pull/push cart.

For a junior golfer (10 years old or younger) what type of bike is best for golf?

Depending on the skill level of the young rider, it is best to use a model that allows the golf pull/push cart to be attached to the bike chosen while still maintaining manoeuvrability and braking safety parameters.

What are the general rules for cycling on the golf course?   

In general, the same guidelines should be followed as for golf carts.

Can the time on the golf course when playing in a group of four be shortened when cycling?

Yes. Firstly, compared to using a conventional golf cart, the time is shortened by the simple fact that each bike is independent. Secondly, search for golf-balls is much faster simply because you can get to the target area more quickly.

PRODUCTS

What is the guideline for choosing between a Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier vs. a Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle?

The rider's ability. Because of the extra weight added to the back of the bicycle, the golf bag carrier is best adapted to the needs of the golfer who has good balance on the bicycle. The golf pull cart hitch, on the other hand, provides a flexible golf pull cart towing solution that is equally suitable for young players as well as adults (men and women).      

What are the advantages of the Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier?

If you are comfortable on a bike and don't mind the extra weight of a golf bag, the Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier will allow you to move quickly on your bike while golfing. For better balance when stopped, we recommend using the Bicycle Kickstand, which will provide your bike with solid support and greater stability.  

What are the advantages of the Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle?

The Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle allows young and old alike to tow a golf cart on a bicycle without any difficulty. Since the hitch fits almost all bicycles and golf pull/push carts, the hitch can be used interchangeably with almost any cart. With no extra weight added to the bike, it is also suitable for people with limited cycling skills.

INSTALLATION

How long does it take to install a golf bag carrier or a pull cart hitch on a bike?

The installation can be done in less than five minutes for bikes that already have a rear rack. For bikes without a rear rack, the installation can be done in less than 10 minutes and requires  either one of our complete sets: the Universal Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier or the Universal Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle.

Do I need special tools for the installation? 

All the tools needed for the installation are provided by Bycigolf and delivered with the products purchased.

To which bikes can the Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier be mounted?

The Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier can easily be installed on bikes that already have a rear rack that is between 5 and 8 inches (12.7 to 20.3 cm) wide. For bicycles without a rear rack, almost all bicycles have a triangle-shaped rear frame that connects the seatpost and the saddle to the rear wheel, allowing the installation of the Universal Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier. Take particular care if mounting components on bicycles that have carbon frames as carbon frames can easily be crushed if fastenings are over-tightened. We recommend that you only attach our products to steel or aluminium bike frames, seatposts etc.

Can the Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle be installed on all bikes?

The Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle can easily be installed on bikes that already have a rear rack between 5 and 8 inches (12.7 to 20.3 cm) wide. For bicycles without a rear rack, almost all bicycles have a triangle-shaped rear frame that connects the seatpost and the saddle to the rear wheel, allowing the installation of the Universal Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle. Take particular care if mounting components on bicycles that have carbon frames as carbon frames can easily be crushed if fastenings are over-tightened. We recommend that you only attach our products to steel or aluminium bike frames, seatposts etc.

What products are suitable for bikes without a rear rack?

For bicycles that are not already equipped with a rear rack, we have the Universal Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier and the Universal Golf Pull Cart Hitch For Bicycle. Both products are complete sets that are designed to fit bikes with or without a rear rack.

Can the Bicycle Golf Bag Carrier be installed on a child's or teenager's bike?    

For smaller bikes (wheel radius of 10 inches (25.4 cm) or more), we recommend the use of the Golf Pull Cart Hitch
