Asgard Sheds & Brownlee Foundation

Alistair Brownlee Drops into a Chapeltown School to Deliver Bikes.

Asgard Storage once again partnered up with the Brownlees of Team GB fame. We last helped out Alistair in 2018 when we provided him with a super secure storage unit for his bikes. Alistair has been super impressed with his own Asgard bike storage and so reached out to ask us to help with a local Brownlee Foundation project. 

“The Brownlee Foundation is local to Asgard, and we have dealt with Alistair before, and he was such a nice guy, how could we say no!  Timing is everything and on the day he called we had just completed a photoshoot  for our Bike Shed x 12… and Alistair was looking for a donation to hold multiple bikes plus for a local school… and there you have it, fate”  - Andy, Asgard Storage

Dixons Academy Cycling Campaign

Olympic Triathlon Champion, Alistair Brownlee, visited Dixons Academy in Chapeltown to deliver regenerated, pre-loved bikes, to give more young people access to an active, healthier lifestyle through cycling. 

The used bikes, collected during Yorwaste’s summer Get ReCycling public appeal for used bikes, have been given a new lease of life, ready to be redistributed back into the community via the appeal’s several charity partners. One of which is the Brownlee Foundation, founded by Olympic Triathlete brothers, Alistair and Jonny Brownlee.

Jonny comments: “Alistair and I still get so much enjoyment from cycling, and we are keen for as many other young people as possible to experience this too. The Brownlee Foundation was set up to encourage children to be active, and cycling is a great way to do this. Not every child has access to a bike, so nothing gives us more pleasure than being able to provide this opportunity to this school today.”

What did Asgard donate?

The Asgard x 12 shed is an epically sized bike shed, this enormous 14 foot shed is perfect for professional riders or those (just like schools) who want to store multiple bikes and equipment all together in a safe and secure manner.  Made from Galvanised steel, the weatherproof Gladiator bike shed x 12 was perfect for Dixons Acadamey.  This super tough bike shed is Police and insurance-approved thanks to the tough construction and security features such as 5-point deadbolt locking, reinforced doors, and ultra-tough inside-out construction.
