Asgard supports athlete & coach Monica Dew

Secured by Design member Asgard Secure Steel Storage continue to support professional athletes across the UK, supplying secure storage to keep their equipment safe.

Over the years Asgard has installed a range of their high-security bike sheds for professional athletes and influencers to store their bikes and accessories safely outdoors. Monica Dew, a retired professional cyclist, currently training to become a British cycling coach, is the latest athlete to choose an Asgard storage shed, joining athletes such as Laura Kenny, Jody Cundy, Elinor Barker and more.

Asgard’s Andy Heath said: “Monica dropped us an email a few weeks ago, already a proud Asgard shed owner, Monica needed even more cycle storage - and as we are all cycle mad here at Asgard, we are more than happy to help out.

“As Monica already owned an Asgard bike shed she was familiar with the security provided by our high quality metal sheds. Bike security was Monica’s number one criteria for a new shed, and she opted for our Secured by Design accredited Annexe bike shed, for storing up to 3 bikes.”

Monica’s love for cycling came from a young age, where both her parents and grandad took her to the Manchester velodrome’s ‘Revolution Series’. Monica pursued an 8-year career in cycling across the UK and Europe, racing for Women’s Elite Race Teams including ‘Storey Racing’, ‘Boot out Breast Cancer cc’ and ‘Podium Ambition’ alongside cyclists such as Katie Archibald and Neah Evans.

In 2020, Monica retired from cycling to pursue a career in coaching, keeping her passion for cycling whilst helping others achieve their best.

Monica commented: “My bikes being safe is my main objective especially when they look that dreamy! The guys over at Asgard storage kindly helped me source one of their Police Recognised bike sheds to give me peace of mind that my bikes are safe in their little house. If you’re like me and safety for your two wheels is your main priority head over to Asgard Storage for top notch service & even better products. Thanks Guys!!”

Secured by Design Technical Manager Alfie Hosker said: “Asgard have a reputation for attracting high profile athletes and professional cyclists who are looking for secure storage for their equipment and cycles. This demonstrates the superb reputation for security that the Asgard Police Preferred Specification bike and motorcycle shed range has.”
