Olympic Cycling Champion Philip Hindes gets an Asgard Police Approved Bike Shed

Asgard bike sheds continue to impress professional cyclists, Olympians and Paralympians, with Jason Kenny’s teammate Philip Hindes MBE becoming the latest star to opt for an Asgard bike shed! The timing worked out great for Philip as he was renovating his home and needed secure storage space for his bikes. Philip opted for the Annexe (Secured by Design) Police approved bike shed, the smallest high-security shed in our range, designed to hold up to 3 bikes.

“The shed is fantastic! It was really easy to build up and perfect for my bikes and E- mtb and patio cushions! It's surprising how much space there is!” - Philip Hindes
