Bike Storage; Before You Buy
Firstly, let’s look at some of the things you’ll need to consider before you decide on the best method of storing and securing your precious bicycle.
If you live in a tiny flat or apartment, then you’ll need to be a bit more creative than if you have a garage. Similarly, if you are looking to get bike storage for a commercial building, you need to consider available space first.
Will you be storing your bike in a space that other people have access to, such as a communal entrance or a shared garage? If so, then you’ll need to think of additional layers of security to put opportunist tea leaves off.
3. Fixtures and fitting
If you live in a rented property, you may need to ask permission from the landlord to install wall/ceiling hooks or make other changes to your environment.
4. The weight and size of your bike
You don’t want it to come tumbling down off the wall, or not fit in your newly purchased bike shed.

A bike locker will be one of the best bike security options for bike storage, as these units provide a completely enclosed, individual area to store bicycles.
To select the best bike locker for your situation, there are a variety of options and decisions to consider.
No matter the application, there are some basic features any bike locker should include:
- The bike locker should fully enclose the bicycle
- It should provide some protection from weather
- The locker should be capable of being anchored to the ground
- Provide security from vandalism and tampering
Because of the security they provide, bike lockers help encourage active transportation. Cyclists will feel more confident using lockers to store their bicycles and personal belongings. These give users a better sense of protection from theft, vandalism and the elements when installed outdoors.
Bike Lockers Provide Secure Storage
While there isn’t a lot of information about the storage facilities the bikes we’re seeing taken from frontline workers during the Covid-19 outbreak were stored in, the chances are that more secure storage would mean fewer thefts. And while no bike storage is 100% guaranteed theft-proof, greater access to secure storage at home and at work removes one of the barriers faced in deciding whether or not to cycle to work, and may help more people get on their bikes.
