If you don’t have the benefit of a garage, or if you do but all the available space is taken, you’ll be thinking ways to keep your bike protected from the elements at the very least. There are a few solutions available which vary in cost depending on how much security you need.
Although there are lots of bike stores to choose from, in principle, they basically come down to a choice between a wooden shed, a metal cabinet or a simple tent. Which is best will depend on your own circumstances and budget.
Trimetals Protectacycle Garden Bike Storage – another ‘high-security’ option, this all metal cabinet has two stainless steel hasps, a ground anchor and internal security cable. The cabinet is also guaranteed against rust for 25 years. W196 × D89 × H133 cm. £649.99 from argos.co.uk
Mercia Wooden Overlap 4 x 6 Bike Store – if keeping your bikes covered is your only consideration then a wooden shed will do the job. This option has space for 4 bikes and off-set doors for easy access. W195 × D125 × H123 cm. £249.99 from argos.co.uk
Bike Nook – not everyone has room for a shed, or even a bike really, which is where this space-saving stand comes into play. In terms of security, it doesn’t help much although you could, maybe, fix a steel cable to the adjoining wall? W11 × D10 × H58 cm. £44.99 from argos.co.uk
