10 Best Bike Sheds in 2022

A bike shed is a practical storage solution for people who don’t have room in their garage or home to store their bikes. A bike storage shed is a secure, convenient way to keep your wheels protected against the elements—and anyone who might want to hop on for a ride. While some bike sheds can cost thousands of dollars, there are plenty of affordable options on the market, and models to suit every space and aesthetic.

Best Bike Sheds

    What to Consider

    Size

    How many bikes will you be storing, and where will this bike shed sit? Make sure the shed will fit in the space you have, and that the dimensions are practical given the amount of space you’ll need. Consider whether or not you’ll be storing extras, like pumps, repair kits, spare tubes, and tires, in the shed as well, and factor those into your calculations when determining an appropriate size. A good rule of thumb for sizing is that one bike will need at least a 5- by 2-foot space, two bikes will need a 5-by 3-foot space, and four bikes will need approximately a 5- by 6-foot space.

    Material

    Material will impact price, weight, and durability. Wooden sheds are classic and attractive, but not as durable long-term thanks to mildew and wood rot. Metal sheds are more secure, but aren’t as aesthetically pleasing and can be harder to assemble. Plastic or resin sheds are easy to assemble and maintain, and they’re often the most affordable models, too.

    Design

    You’ll want to be able to remove specific bikes without moving others out of the way, so take a close look at how the bikes will be arranged and organized in the shed. Additionally, make sure you understand how the shed is accessed. Does it have a barn door design with two opening doors? A partial slider? Does it lift from the top? All of these factors will impact how easy the shed is to keep secure, as well as how easy it is to open to access the bikes.
