The front basket isn’t nearly strong enough to support even one bike. You would need a rack that bolts directly to the tongue. What is your tow vehicle?  A HD pickup can use a dual receiver adapter, so you may be able to use a regular rack.

Do a search, this is discussed constantly.

I added a rear mount cargo carrier to our LEII.  A bike rack could easily be mounted in the same manner.

@BillsarvisLots of information available for bike rack mounts available here on the forum. Hopefully this will give you other options.
