Pro Cyclist Owain Doull and his Asgard Police approved bike shed

Olympic Champion Owain Doull gets an Asgard Centurion (SBD) Police-approved Bike Shed.

Professional Cyclist and Olympic Champion, Owain Doull MBE, is the latest professional athlete to become the proud owner of an Asgard bike shed. Joining 30 other professional cyclists, Olympians, Paralympians, rugby stars, and boxing champions, Owain approached the Asgard team for help and advice on how to safely store his many bikes at his Peak District home. With an emphasis on both security and space. The Centurion bike shed x7 with its Secured by Design (Police) rating, LPCB (level1) certification, and UK Locksmith approved status, seemed to fit the bill. 

“I can honestly say having an Asgard shed has changed my life. As a professional cyclist, my bike is my life so to be able to come home and put my bike away, out of sight helps me switch off. It also helps that I know my bikes are safe and secure from theft and the elements outside. It’s the perfect shed to keep everything safe, I built it myself and it went up quickly and easily” - Owain Doull

Owain had originally heard about Asgard’s top secure bike storage through his partner and British Cycling star Ellie Dickinson, who stored her bikes in a Secured by Design (Police) approved Annexe bike shed - a smaller 3x bike storage shed packed full of the same great security features…. Just smaller.

Why did Owain choose a Centurion Police-approved shed?

With a large range of bikes and cycling equipment to store, Owain opted for our Centurion Bike Storage Shed x7 measuring in at a huge 5ft wide x 11ft deep, and designed to hold up to 7 bikes, featuring an integral bike rack, shelving, storage hooks and a ramp. As security was a key factor, the Centurion range’s impressive accreditations and security features gave Owain the reassurance that his bikes would be safe, secure and dry. 

Made from galvanised (weatherproof) steel with an integral metal base that can be bolted to the ground for extra security. The Centurion has reinforced panels, heavy-duty doors and hinges for extra security. This heavy-duty secure, metal shed features a super-secure 5 point locking mechanism (with steel deadbolts) and a pick-and-drill resistant lock (rated to EN1303) 

For increased bike security the lock handle features a unique snap off spindle designed to resist forced entry, it simply falls away when attacked, leaving the shed locked and secure.

The Asgard bike shed x 7 brings all of these security features together to give this high-security shed; Loss Prevention Certification Board to Level 1, Secured by Design approval  (Police) and UK Locksmith approval.
