Schools have been encouraging pupils to ditch the car in the morning and cycle to their classes instead, as a way to improve their health and fitness. However, this is fine if parents have plenty of place to store their bikes, but it can be difficult to find enough room for each of the family’s wheels if they only have a shed.
Here are some alternative storage options to keep your bikes safe.
The cheapest solution is to buy a wooden bike shed that will be tall enough to fit an adult’s bike standing up and you don’t have to worry about it getting stolen. The double doors make it easy to access the vehicles, and can typically fit two to three bikes. While the wooden sheds tend to come with a ten or 15-year warranty, ones made of trimetals offer a longer 25-year guarantee.
Another option is to get a lean-to shed built on to the side of your house, which provides protection from inclement weather, and offers ample height without taking up too much space or typically requiring planning permission.
They are popular for being reasonably inexpensive, as they can often use the existing wall instead of building a completely new shed. You could add wooden walls to the exterior of the lean-to for added protection or leave the structure open and use a bike lock for its security.
For a bigger storage solution that can double up as a garage, playroom, or office, consider building a log cabin. These provide the best protection as they are very secure and will ensure the bike is kept away from any rain or snow.
