Organize your garage with bike storage solutions

Most of us have a junk drawer, and often times the garage ends up resembling one. Where else are you going to fit randomly sized and shaped items like bicycles, sports balls, golf clubs, and ice skates? It is fairly safe to say that the bike can prove to be most challenging due to its sheer size and oddly shaped features. Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Cincinnati, OH has some bike storage solutions for your garage.

The first step in organizing should be to find homes for the largest items. That brings up one of the most commonly asked questions we get as garage and home designers. Where do we put the bikes?!

bike storage can be difficult

You Have Options

Luckily, there are many innovative and affordable options on the market today that will store your equipment from the floor to the ceiling and everywhere in between.

Various hoists, hooks, stands, and racks are available for whatever needs you have. There are many options that fit your style, space, and organizational habits.

Bike Mounts: Wall vs. Ceiling

Ceiling mounts require no square footage on the ground which can be precious real estate, particularly if you hope to still keep both family vehicles inside your garage. Though this kind of mount frees up space, they are not recommended for avid riders due to the time needed to both store and retrieve the item.

This option works well, however, for seasonal storage despite your level of bicycle use. For example, store your bike above during winter and find a temporary solution during the months with more moderate weather when you are more likely to use it frequently.

Where There’s a Wall There’s a Way

Wall mounts may appear to be much bulkier than a ceiling mount, and though that is true you are giving up space for accessibility. The level of space needed in comparison to a ceiling mount may seem overwhelming, but it is only the protrusion of the pedal and/or handlebars that prevent the item from lying flush.

This storage option empowers everyone in the family, even children to be able to safely retrieve their bicycle without having to solicit adult help. This is a great solution for a family that needs a home for their bulky bikes without making things difficult.

Pros vs. Cons

Ceiling Mounts

  • Set it and forget it
  • No ground square footage needed
  • Not easily accessible

Wall Mounts

  • Kid Friendly
  • Readily accessible
  • Requires wall space and protrudes into common areas

Don’t Forget Your Accessories

bike storage for your accessories

Keep in mind that you will also want to dedicate space in your storage plan for all your bicycling accessories. Bike helmets, bottles, and bags can all be stored in close proximity to your bike so that when you get the urge to ride, you have everything you need.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
