Bike Rack Ideas

Cycling has surged in popularity lately. It's a hobby, a sport, a fitness fad, and, more and more, an alternative mode of transportation. It has health benefits, it's cost-efficient, and it's CO2-free. 

But bicycles prove tricky to park or store, more so if you don't have a proper bike rack. So how can you keep your bicycle stored all safe and sound at home?

Let's take a look at these simple yet out-of-the-box solutions:


This Behance designer made the meta-bike rack of bike racks. It's simple but efficient: just hang your bicycle on an upcycled handlebar mounted on the wall.

Metal pipes can also serve as bicycle hooks. Choose a sturdy pair of J-shaped pipes and secure them to the wall.


If you have a set of bicycles to store, follow this tutorial on how to assemble a rack using PVC pipes.


Use long, narrow wooden pallets or one side of a wooden crate, one with enough space between the slats of wood for the front wheel of your bicycle. Secure metal L-brackets to one side to make it stand on its own. Make sure that the structure is sturdy and that it can support your bicycle's weight.


The ultimate cheap hack: a log used as a bicycle stand. Use upcycled wood and saw out an incision in the log a few inches wide, enough to accommodate the front wheel of your bicycle.
