Olympic Cycling Champion Philip Hindes MBE gets an SBD Asgard bike shed

Secured by Design (SBD) member company Asgard Secure Steel Storage continues to work with the UK’s professional athletes to offer secure bicycle storage sheds for their homes, giving them peace of mind their bikes are safe and dry.

Following fellow teammates and friends such as Sir Jason Kenny and Owain Doull MBE, the latest star to opt for an Asgard bike shed is Olympic Champion Philip Hindes MBE. As Philip was in the process of renovating his home, he wanted a compact but secure bike shed for his new patio. The SBD accredited Asgard Annexe bike shed fitted the bill, offering high-security bike storage for up to 3 bikes.

Philip commented “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 is a two-time Olympic Champion and Olympic Record Holder, racing with Callum Skinner and fellow Asgard shed owner Jason Kenny in the Men’s team sprint. Initially racing for Germany at the junior level, he joined British Cycling in 2010 and has gone on to win gold at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. In Tokyo 2020, Philip was an unused reserve for the Men’s Sprint, after making an excellent recovery from an injury.

Outside of his cycling career, Philip runs 5 Rings Coffee with fellow Olympic Champion & Asgard bike shed owner Owain Doull, and Olympic Champion Callum Skinner.

In need of a secure small bike shed suitable for a patio, Philip chose Asgard’s strongest and most compact bike shed - the Annexe. With a footprint of 6ft x 3ft, the Annexe is designed to safely store 3 bikes and features the best bike shed security including a strong galvanised steel construction with reinforced hinges, panels and doors, and an integral metal floor that can be bolted to the ground. The Asgard Annexe bike shed also features a 5 point locking mechanism with a pick and drill resistant lock rated to EN1303 - ensuring the highest tested level of durability, temperature and corrosion resistance. All these great security features help to make the Annexe bike storage shed SBD accredited, LPCB Level 1 approved and UK Locksmith approved.

Secured by Design Technical Manager Alfie Hosker said: “I am delighted that yet another Olympian is so pleased with their Secured by Design accredited Asgard bike shed. It’s testament to the quality of the product and the reputation Asgard bring in this area.”
