With The Tour de France in full swing, we decided to take a look at some of the fantastic bike storage solutions we’ve created in residential garages for our customers.
There are many ways to store your bikes but we believe they should be stored tidily, easily accessible and not pose a problem when trying to get to other items in the garage. So what we mean is you don’t try to get the one from the back of the pile and all of them fall over onto the floor!
In this garage, fitted out in 2013, we used three of our Vertical Bike Racks on the main wall to create a dedicated bike storage area. Storing bikes in this way uses up less storage space so you can get more in, and you can see which bike is which. It also looks very nice!
For this customer, we have obviously panelled all the garage walls so the bike racks clip easily on to them but if you don’t have our panel, you can buy a Vertical Bike Rack with FlexiTrack which allows you to put them on your wall. To buy the rack with FlexiTrack, click here.
Completed for Singer Lee Latchford-Evans of Steps fame, his garage was a simple single structure. He had a couple of bikes that he needed to store but, being a single garage, there was limited space. One Vertical Bike Rack put on the wall was plenty of storage for the bikes and other accessories to be stored neatly.
This next garage was actually a DIY installation from a customer who popped into our HQ in Buckinghamshire. He was a keen cyclist and wanted to add in some storage to his garage for his bikes, helmets and bags.
We advised buying some of our FlexiTrack which attaches to the garage wall as shown here and then you can add in hooks, bike storage racks and even some tip out bins as this customer did. This gives you ultimate storage options and keeps things neat, tidy and organised.
All of these items can be purchased on our e-store for DIY Installation.
This garage is any cyclists dream! The customer is very into cycling and came to us as he had several bikes that he needed to store but wasn’t quite sure where to start.
Luckily, he had plenty of space to add in bike storage with two rooms of his garage space being able to take our Vertical Bike Racks. To see the full case study on this garage makeover, click here.
Installed in Cambridge in 2016, an Interior Designer came to us with ideas she was proposing for a new customer who wanted to create a tidy space, with room for his bikes.
A combination of Horizontal Bike Racks and Vertical Bike Racks were intalled to give storage options, and some interest to the garage walls!

Completed in 2019, this garage in Gloucestershire only had one bike to store so it was nice to make a bit of a feature of it on the main wall as you look into the garage.
Our Horizontal Bike Rack was used here and stores it very nicely. You can also buy this rack from our online store with some FlexiTrack so you can re-create the look at home. Click here to find out more.
This customer in Lincolnshire opted to have three Horizontal Bike Racks installed on his wall so they are all ready for the next family bike ride!
This lovely bike shed was completed in 2019 in Wimbledon. The owner already had a free standing bike rack which they wanted to continue using but they had lots of extra bits that they wanted to store neatly on the wall.
Design Consultant, Abigail Leonard came up with a design to add in shelves, baskets and hooks so that all the smaller items could be neatly sorted and organised. We think this looks great!
Once again, all of these items can easily be put on a strip of FlexiTrack which you simply screw into your wall. Find out more about how to do it here.
The owner of this garage in Surrey was keen to make use of his high ceilings in the garage space and so asked us to create a pulley system whereby this could be done.
Using a series of bike hoists, we were able to create this for him. Thereby freeing up the floor space for his car.
These hoists aren’t available on our store at the moment but do get in touch if you are interested and we can advise you how it can be done!
Of course this isn’t a complete listing of all the bike storage we’ve installed over the years but it gives you a pretty good taster of the options available.
