Over lockdown, one of the few pleasures that we have still been able to enjoy is the enjoyment of riding our bikes across the countryside! This led to a surge of people buying bikes and either taking up cycling from scratch or re-visiting a childhood hobby.
Of course, when you buy a bike you do need to look after it, and part of this is having a place to store it. An ideal place is a garage or a shed – but do make sure that this is secure to prevent theft. You may want to consider replacing your garage doors for some more secure ones – click here for garage doors in Gloucester.
When it comes to bike racks, you have a few choices. Depending on how much space you have in your garage or shed, there are a few types you can choose from including ceiling racks, vertical wall racks and floor racks.
Floor racks are great for younger kids as they are the easiest for them to get to when they need to get their bikes out. They are also really versatile and easy to move around if you wanted to change the garage layout.
Vertical racks are used to hang your bike on the wall from its front wheel – it is not laid flat against the wall but sticks out into the room, which is ideal if you don’t have a lot of wall space and want to hang multiple bikes.
Ceiling racks are one of the best ways to store bikes in a small space – they do not take up any wall or floor space at all and they can be compatible with lots of types of bikes.
