When living in a small apartment in an urban city with limited space finding room for your bike and cycling equipment may be challenging. Leaving your bike outside opens the door for weather damage and/or theft. So, what are your options if you don’t have access to a garage, basement or storage space, and you don’t want to compromise the aesthetics of your space? These creative storage alternatives will allow you to store your bike safely inside, while making it a part of your décor.
