Monica Dew's Annexe Bike Storage Shed

Monica Dew & Asgard Police Approved Bike Storage

Asgard sheds continue to wow and impress world-class cyclists and athletes, with Monica Dew being the latest professional cyclist to opt for an Asgard bike shed. Monica is a retired professional cyclist, currently training to become a British cycling coach. Already familiar with Asgard’s products, as the proud owner of an Asgard bike shed already, Monica approached the team earlier this year to ask for further advice on secure storage advice. Bike Storage & Security is an important factor for all cyclists, The Police approved Annexe bike shed for storing 3 bikes was the perfect solution.  

“Monica dropped us an email a few weeks ago, already a proud Asgard shed owner, Monica needed even more cycle storage - and as we all cycle mad here at Asgard, we are more than happy to help out" - Andy Heath

‘My bikes being safe is my main objective especially when they look that dreamy! The guys over at @asgardstorage kindly helped me source one of their Police Approved bike sheds to give me peace of mind that my bikes are safe in their little house. If you’re like me and safety for your two wheels is your main priority head over to @asgardstorage for top-notch service & even better products. Thanks Guys!!’ - Monica Dew, Cycling Coach

Monica Dew's Secure Bike Shed Break In

The Annexe Police Approved Shed - Tested by Thieves! 

Monica Dew got her super secure Asgard bike shed back in 2021, Unfortunately, Monica woke up to a nasty surprise in 2022,  - someone tried to steal her bikes! Luckily,  Monica’s bikes were kept safe and secure in her Secured by Design (Police) approved Annexe bike shed.

"I mean this would be a different story if it wasn't for Asgard keeping my stuff safe!! You ain't getting near my bikes...Evidence right there that Asgard Storage WORKS" - Monica.

Asgard loves a good news story, so it's great to hear our bike sheds easily prevented another bike theft. Shortly after the attempted break-in we despatched our shed installation team to examine the damage, replace the doors and fit an additional Yale ground anchor for extra (just in case) security inside the shed.

Who is Monica Dew?

Monica’s love for cycling was multi-generational, with both her parents and grandad taking her to the Manchester velodrome’s ‘Revolution Series’ when she was young. It sparked off an 8 year career in cycling across the UK and Europe, racing for a Women’s Elite Race Teams including ‘Storey Racing’, ‘Boot out Breast Cancer cc’ and ‘Podium Ambition’ alongside cyclists such as Katie Archibald and Neah Evans. In 2020, Monica retired from cycling to pursue a career in coaching, keeping her passion for cycling whilst helping others achieve their best.

Why did Monica pick the Annexe Bike Shed?

Monica had a number one aim when she was looking for bike storage: to keep them safe. That’s why Monica opted for an Asgard Secured by Design (Police) approved bike shed. Fitted with an integral base, 5-point locking, reinforced doors, panels and hinges, the Annexe is an excellent shed to keep bikes safe. These additional security features have been independently tested by The Loss Prevention Certification Board and are a Police preferred specification, giving Monica complete peace of mind. As Monica had limited space, the Annexe’s compact 6ft x 4ft size was ideal to hold her 3 bikes.
