Tips on storing multiple bicycles, scooters, etc?
My husband and I have 4 kids and we have 6 bikes, a bike trailer to hold 2 kids and four scooters that we store in half of our 2-car garage. Our whole family is pretty active and we take these out several times a week. I need to figure out a better way to store our bikes and scooters in our garage. They have taken over and keep falling over - it's a huge mess.
We have shelving and hanging tools on the walls of our garage so we do not have room for the wall-mounted bike storage systems I've seen in catalogs.
Also, I am not interested in hanging the bikes from the ceiling because I want our kids (ages 4 through 11) to be able to EASILY get their bike out so they can go riding at a moment's notice (and I don't want to have to get them up and down for them!)
Right now, the bikes keep falling over (kick stands don't seem to hold them up very well.) I bought a couple of small 18" tall free-standing bike racks that are supposed to hold 2 bikes each but these still didn't seem to work and the bikes fall over anyway.
I'm thinking I want to buying a bike rack sort of like the one on the following page
Does anyone have a better idea other than that? I'm open to suggestions.
