Professional Cyclist Sam Brand gets an Asgard Access Plus Bike Shed
Asgard Bike Sheds continue to grow in popularity, becoming the “go-to” professional bike storage solution, with Professional Cyclist Sam Brand becoming the latest professional rider to choose an Asgard bike shed for bike protection. Sam chose our most popular bike safe - The Asgard Access Plus Bike Shed, finished in a modern grey finish. This all galvanised metal shed is designed to hold up to 4 bikes and riding equipment, with easy access double doors and a hand lift-up lid.
‘Since day one of coming across Asgard it’s been nothing short of incredible. The customer service, the help in selecting the right storage unit for me and the support in that process has been a joy and privilege. The Asgard Access Plus is absolute perfection.
The unit is amazing - it’s versatile and strong - it provides me with all the requirements I need to store my bike and equipment but much more. Using the unit on a daily basis has really provided me with more than I knew I needed. I cannot recommend Asgard more for your secure bike storage needs.’ - Sam Brand, Professional Cyclist

Why did Sam choose the Access Bike Safe?
Sam opted for our popular Access Plus metal bike shed, a ‘walk-in shed’ with a low and unobtrusive design featuring a gas-assisted lift-up lid and double doors for easy access to bikes. With 3-point locking, protective stainless steel shrouds and a deadbolt, the Access offers superior secure bike storage. As with all Asgard sheds, the Access features a galvanised steel carcass and floor with a unique ventilation system to keep bikes safe and dry.
*Please note, Sam organised his own packaging and shipping to deliver the Asgard shed to the Isle of Man.
