Storing Kids Bikes Outside
So my wife, two kids, and I live in a small house without a garage and just got a small (16 inch standover height) bike with training wheels for my 3.5 year old daughter for Christmas. Naturally she wants to ride it but it is cold, snowy, and rainy so that will have to wait a few days or weeks. We don't have any optimal place to store this bike outside. Ideally we would have a covered outside porch (as some people do in my neighborhood) but we do not. We have a tool shed way in the back of our house where I might store the bike during the winter.
We have a side fence that intersects at 90 degrees with another fence, both of which are about 4 feet tall. I'm thinking of maybe getting a piece of plywood and setting it on top of the two pieces of wood where they meet and putting the bike under there in the months when it is likely to be most ridden.
Has anyone come up with a good solution to storing a kids bike outside but still out of direct rain/sunshine? Any ideas would be appreciated!
