I know there are some handy people here so I hoped people might provide some ideas or about constructing a rain shelter for our commuter bikes, about four of them. Perhaps someone has already built one.
Ideas are to hang up a tarp or to make a table large enough to shelter the bikes or a wooden frame covered with a tarp. We would like to keep costs down and allow access to the space occasionally so that rules out constructing or buying an enclosed shed.
We also thought about buying some corrugated metal sheets and attaching them to the deck (8 feet off the ground at high point but the roof could slope down along the stairs) but the height may allow too much rain to come under since the roof would be about 5 feet wide (which is how much deck space is available for attachment).
Some type of rack would help to separate the bikes and make them easy to remove. Either a pole to hang bikes from seats, or a slot for the rear wheel.
Thanks for any ideas.
