British Cycling Ciara Horne & Lewis Oliva get an Access Bike Shed
British Cycling & Welsh Cycling stars Ciara Horne and Lewis Oliva are the latest athletes to approach Asgard for help and advice on storing their bikes safely and securely at home. Ciara and husband Lewis are two more athletes joining the growing number of professionals to choose Asgard for their bike storage needs.
Not only were they impressed with the secure bike storage, but as health professionals, Ciara and Lewis liked our continued support and commitment to the Blue Light Card discount scheme offering discounted goods and service to all NHS and emergency service workers.
“Lewis and I are incredibly grateful for our stunning new bike shed which comfortably stores our bikes (with lots more space for gym & Pilates equipment too!) and ensures our bikes are kept 100% safe at all times. We feel exceptionally lucky, thank you Asgard secure steel storage.” - Ciara Oliva née Horne

Why did Lewis & Ciara choose an Asgard Access Bike Shed?
Due to its lift-up lid and double doors making the shed easy to manoeuvre bikes in and out of, the Access is one of our most popular sheds. The Access’ compact footprint of approx 7ft x 4ft holds up to 4 bikes and is ideal for those cyclists who need to securely store multiple bikes and equipment. As with all Asgard bike sheds, the Access is made from thick galvanised steel and features an integral base that can bolt to the ground for added security and strength. With a 3-point locking mechanism and internal deadbolt, the Access can help securely store your bikes. Keeping your bikes safe and dry.
