Ireland Rugby Fallback Lauren Delany chooses an Annexe Police approved Bike Shed
After being recommended by her Team GB teammates Elinor Baker and Helen Scott, Team GB Nutritionist and Ireland Rugby Fallback Lauren Delany contacted Asgard for help and advice on bike storage. Lauren, alongside her housemate Katie Flatters (a Team GB Sports Physiotherapist), required a high-security bike shed to store both their bikes and cycling equipment in, but were looking for a subtle design that would blend into the garden. Together, they selected the Annexe bike store, a low height 6ft x 4ft bike safe which would sit just below hedge level, so hidden from view. The Annexe fits up to 3 bikes and Is Police approved due to its vast security features - helping ease their security concerns.
“A really easy install, a good, solid flat base was already in place, that makes a shed install so much easier, even on a freezing Manchester morning” - Stuart, Asgard shed installation team.
