A Cook shed can be used for a variety of purposes and with all the extra space you don’t have to choose just one.

With the right organizational techniques, you can store lawn equipment, as well as your favorite sporting goods.

One of those family friendly sports you can enjoy almost year-round is biking. There are many paved or even rustic trails you can find at your local or state parks close to home.

Biking is of course great exercise, but it also can be fun for the whole family!  Enjoy the outdoors, while picking up the speed a little.

If your family loves to bike, then having proper storage is essential to keeping your bike functional from season to season. Here's what you need to know about how to store your bicycle.  
Family Biking + Bicycle Storage Tips

What are the benefits of keeping your bikes indoors?

-Keeps them out of the elements

-Reduces risk of rusting

-Keeps them clean and ready for another day of riding!


Here are some tips to properly storing your bicycle and equipment.  Especially if you need to store it during the winter, then make sure you store it properly using these tips.

  • Thoroughly wash your bike and get any dirt or mud off of it.  The longer the bike sits with dirt on it, the higher the risk of your bike rusting or your moving parts not working correctly.
  • Get a tune-up. At least air up your tires and lubricate your chains.
  • Store it inside.  You can store this in your garage, or even in your spare room. Another great option for storing your bike, is to store it in a Cook shed.  Cook sheds have a lock so you can keep it safe year round.
