Rugby star Tommy Makinson gets an Asgard Twin Bike Shed
St Helens rugby star Tommy Makinson approached us on social media for help and advice on storing his bikes at home, with the Asgard Twin Bike Shed catching his eye.

Why did Tommy Makinson choose an Asgard Twin bike shed?
A keen cyclist, Tommy was looking for a bikebox storage to safely store his 2 bikes in. With a compact footprint, the Asgard Twin Bike Locker was an ideal bike shed taking up minimal space at just 900mm wide x 1900mm long - fitting down the side of the house to create a neat and clean aesthetic.
Like all of our metal sheds, the double bikebox is made out of galvanised steel, creating superior weatherproof storage designed to last. With 3-point locking, a unique ventilation system and the ability to bolt the bike shed to the floor, the Twin Bike Locker will help to keep his bikes safe. Tommy selected the Twin Bike Locker in cream to compliment his house.
