How to arrange my bike shed? Answered

We're moving house and I'm going to be getting a 8' x 6' shed with a double door on one of the 6' sides.

In the shed I'll be storing my motorbike (6' x 2') and 3 push bikes.

I won't be using it for anything else as there's another shed for that.

Obviously the motorbike will take up the full size of the bike, but what's the best way to store the bicycles in the remaining space?

Any thoughts or links to projects would be great.

Thanks, Jack


I've seen bikes hung from ceilings, it works.


I'd say leave them on the ground easy to get to. If it's not ready to use I'd use that as an excuse to do something else.

Hang them using those screw in hangers made especially for holding bikes and ladders.

Pulley & rope system store them against the sloping roof - this assumes you don't use them every day you will gain the floor space then.

Alternatively build a low lean to on the side of the shed for the bikes. Same reason.
