Also know as a Canvas Bike Cave these canvas bicycle sheds are perhaps your cheapest option for the storage. They are essentially like camping tents, and share similar construction, with flexible poles and anchored to the ground with pegs. Prices for canvas storage sheds range from £40 upwards.

While these canvas bike caves offer a cheap option for outdoor storage of bikes or other garden items, we not sure we could recommend them to anyone who has a more expensive, higher-end bike storage where security is key. That being said, it is certainly worth considering a bike cave for smaller children’s bikes or other low cost items you just want to protect from the elements
