Bike Sheds - A Guide to Bike Storage
Bike Sheds Are Among the UK’s Favourite Garden Sheds
Bike ownership is at record levels, leading some people to argue that cycling is the UK’s national sport. Consequently, there are now a huge number of bike sheds for sale.
If this trend continues, bike storage sheds will soon overtake traditional wooden sheds as the nation’s favourite garden buildings.
Why Do I Need A Bike Shed?
Unfortunately, our craze for 2 wheels has also resulted in a sharp increase in bike theft.
With the average bicycle costing hundreds of pounds, many in excess of £1000, this is a very serious problem.
Half of all cyclists are victims of bike crime and only 10% of stolen bikes are ever recovered (2017 National Cycle Crime Survey).
Even more alarmingly, the majority of thefts take place from the owner’s garden.
Therefore, the best way to prevent your own bike becoming part of these unwanted statistics is to purchase effective bike storage.
