Even with the coronavirus lockdown in place, more and more people are cycling for exercise. While some are experienced and understand cycling safety, maintenance and proper bicycle storage, others are novices who need some guidance.
For that very reason, we’ve put together a little guide for you and your family. We look at how to stay safe on the road, the sort of safety equipment you need, how to maintain your bike and, of course, bicycle storage.
Cleaning and storing sports equipment properly is essential to keep everything
in good condition until next season. Considering that summer sport is now definitely
over, you need innovative sports storage solutions to keep your expensive gear clean
This particularly applies to those who love canoeing, kayaking, cycling and
playing golf. Don’t just dump it in a cupboard, garage or storage shed as it
could cause premature wear and tear. The last thing you want next season is a
damaged canoe, flat bicycle tyres or rodents living in your golf bag.
If you live in a small house or flat, you know exactly what we’re referring to. Let’s be honest, bicycles are awkward to store and you need somewhere safe and secure. You need a space big enough where they won’t get damaged and somewhere they can be kept clean. Unless you’ve decluttered, don’t just throw them into the shed or garage as it may already be full of other stuff. You also don’t want to risk driving over your bicycle’s wheels if it’s just lying on the garage floor.
Whether you need to make space at
home or find another way, there are several things you could consider. Here are
some safe and suitable bicycle storage tips for everyone.
More and more people are cycling and it’s no surprise really. It’s a fantastic way to see the beautiful countryside and to get the whole family active. There are increasing numbers of safe cycle tracks for families to use making it even easier for younger children to enjoy the outing with their parents. Bicycles are not cheap though so effective bicycle storage is important to keep them safe and in good condition.
