Cycle shelter cost

For an avid cyclist, storing your bike properly is vital to avoid rust or theft. An at-home cycle shelter will come in many forms, big or small. This guide will outline all the options available to you and the cycle shelter cost. 

Having a dry, safe, secure space to store a bike is absolutely key for any bike owner, no matter your experience. There are many different options to suit your space and budget needs, from bespoke wooden shelters to premade plastic sheds that need to be assembled. Read on to find out the average cycle shed costs so you can plan your project and make a perfect home for your beloved bike.

Cycle shelter cost

The cost of a cycle shed will vary depending on the size and style of shelter you choose. An actual shed will be the best option for keeping your bike safe from the elements and from any potential thefts. This can be made of wood, metal or plastic, whatever your budget allows. The price to install a plastic shed ranges from £285 – £700 depending on size.

You could either buy a premade shed from £299 up to around £2,578 and have a handyman put it together, or, you could commission a handyman/carpenter to build you a bespoke cycle shed from scratch. A handyman costs on average, £25 an hour, plus you’ll need to factor in the cost of materials. A bespoke bike shed means you can choose everything you need and fit it into whatever space you may have.

Cycle storage ideas

Depending on space, you may need to get creative on how you store your bike. If you’re storing your bike inside your home, a good idea is to have it mounted on the wall. To ensure a secure installation, we recommend hiring a handyman to complete a firm and secure fit. Remember that wall fixings that aren’t properly installed can severely damage both your wall and your bike.

There is more flexibility with outdoor bike storage because you have more space. You can purchase a wooden bike shed for around £400 or a steel shed for around £500, and hire a handyman to build them and ensure they’re secure. You can also find large metal-framed sheds with perspex coverings for around £1,000. To ensure your bike shed is installed correctly, we recommend hiring a handyman to complete the job. This job can take up half a day to complete.

FAQsbicycle shelter cost

How do I store my bike outside?

If you are storing a bike outside, a bike shed is your best option. It will keep your bike hidden from view and safe from bad weather. But not everyone has space, especially in cities. You can use a bike cover to help protect your bike while locked up outside, but you may still experience rust.

Will a bike rust in a shed?

If you store your bike in a shed, this will protect your bike from the weather and rust. A bike will be safer inside, but we advise against leaving it outside for too long as it could begin to slowly rust.
