Olympic legend Ed Clancy OBE is the latest professional cyclist to get an Asgard bicycle storage shed! Looking for a safe, stylish and secure way of storing his bikes. Ed made contact with our Asgard team to ask about the Access Plus bike shed for his home in Yorkshire - after a quick site measure from the Asgard installation team, we found the perfect spot. Ed Opted for an Access Plus bike shed in grey, Ed was more than thrilled with his new shed:
“I’m over the moon with the new bike shed, I can get loads of bikes in there and even the big mountain bikes fit in - I’m sleeping easy at night. The bike shed looks great in the garden too, and it conveniently fits perfectly across the wall! The lads who built it were both personal and professional, I’m genuinely impressed, it's good to see a British manufacturer producing high quality products.” - Ed Clancy
“I always enjoy building a shed for one of the Olympic champions, everytime we meet one, it inspires me to get back on my own bike and back into training”. Stuart Leddy Asgard Installation

Why did Ed choose an Asgard Access Bike Shed?
With many bikes to securely store but limited space, Ed opted for the Access Plus bike shed - an 8ft x 4ft bike shed designed to hold up to 4 bikes including 29” wheelers. As many other professional cyclists are using the Asgard Access Plus bike shed including Elinor Barker, Laura & Jason Kenny and Jody Cundy, Ed already knew the outstanding quality of our sheds.
The Access Plus is hugely popular amongst both professional and amateur cyclists due to its user-friendly lift-up lid and double doors, giving great access to the bikes while offering a compact and low shed. With an integral metal base, no exposed screws and a 3-point locking system, the Access is also strong and secure to help protect your bikes from opportunist thieves. Like all our Asgard sheds, the Access is manufactured in West Yorkshire from galvanised (weatherproof) steel - ideal for Ed’s hilltop Yorkshire home!
