In cold climates bikes should not be stored with the tires touching the ground or the tires / inner tubes will warp.

When we built our screen room, we intended to have enclosed storage space underneath for storing our kayaks. The first winter, though, the chipmunk who made a home in one of the kayaks decided to make a back door and chewed a large opening around the drain in the back of the kayak. I hadn’t realized they could chew through plastic that well! Trying to make that space chipmunk-proof seems like a losing battle, so the kayaks are getting stored in the garage instead.

I love an organized garage. My parents always hung things up etc. can’t convince my husband. He stacks things on top of each other and just doesn’t care. Took me 11 years to talk him into 2 shelf units for the basement. I wonder how many years before I can get him to agree on organization for bikes, kayak and garden tools. I would do it myself, only I know he would get upset. And with the basement shelving I could not lift the boxes by myself.
