Cycle Compounds

Miko Engineering’s cycle compounds offer secure bike storage solutions with lockable gates with complete all-round visibility. The cycle compounds can be designed to hold any number of cycles by combining our Alnwick cycle shelters. We offer a number of optional features and can fit the compounds with gates, lighting and access control panels. Miko designs manufactures and installs all of our bicycle compounds. Our Alnwick Cycle compound is a very popular option in large high schools and universities with a high volume of pupils and staff where having a lockable bike shelter is highly important.

Although the Alnwick cycle shelter is the ‘go-to’ design for our cycle compounds, any of our other shelters can also be adapted for a bike compound. Alternatively, if you are looking for something specific, we can manufacture bespoke designs to make sure you get exactly what your business needs.

Benefits of cycle compounds

  • Weather protection – Keep your bikes protected from all weather conditions. A cycle compound ensures year-round weather protection for the bicycles on your premises. 
  • Security –  Compounds are more secure than standard cycle racks; with lockable gates and access panels, you can cycle to work and store your bike with peace of mind that it’s secure. 
  • Sustainability – Our compounds are made from high-quality, long-lasting materials, reducing the need for frequent replacement and disposal. 
  • Maximise space – Add to the aesthetic appeal of your premises by having a cycle compound that matches your brand colours or in a range of coloured finishes that maximises your outdoor space.
  • Encourage active lifestyles – If your business provides a safe and secure facility to store bicycles, more people will be willing to cycle to work and therefore lead a healthier and happier lifestyle.

We purchased a number of bespoke external bicycle and buggy storage units from MIKO last year for use by residents of our blocks of flats. The units are clad in timber so blend into the surroundings and are very well used by our tenants as an alternative to storing items in communal stairwells. The company were extremely pleasant to work with, keeping me informed throughout the design and installation stage. I have no hesitation in recommending them as we had an excellent customer experience, we will certainly be using them again in the future if another project should arise. – Elaine Walters, Broadacres Housing

I heartily recommend Miko Shelter Solutions – they have been like Ronseal and done exactly what they said on the tin!

I am writing to thank you for the work that Miko Engineering recently carried out at Oakfield Junior School where you installed an Alnwick Cycle Shelter and Scooter Rack. I have visited the school and I am very pleased with the quality of the work. I would also like to thank you for agreeing to complete the work in time for the school’s ‘Bike It’ activity week. The shelter and rack are already being well used. – Martin Kelly, Transport Strategy, Gateshead Council
