Riding a bicycle every day or just during the weekends is a great way to stay healthy. Cycling makes the whole body move which helps improve blood flow, lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health too. Since your bike takes care of you, it's important that you take care of it too. Regular maintenance is a good first step but what can keep your bike safe from the elements and prying is a bike shed. Bicycle sheds provide the space necessary for you to store your bike but they can be much more than just that if you know what to look for in one.

What to Consider

Size

The size of the shed will depend on that of the bike but usually there are two types sheds when it comes to width. Bike sheds for road bikes are going to be anywhere between 38 cm and 46 cm wide, whilst sheds for mountain/ hybrid bikes are between 51 cm and 61 cm wide. You'll need to measure the height and length of your bicycle too and take into consideration the accessories that come with it. Usually if you have only one bike, you'll need a shed that's about 1.8 m long and about 60 cm wide. 2 bikes will require a shed of the same length and width of 90 cm. Just add about 30 cm of width for every bike.

When you take your Toyota Surf for a routine service, such as a tune-up or oil change, the mechanic will probably also take a look at the air filter. The air filter, although a small and seemingly unimportant part, is crucial for ensuring your engine has all the clean and cool air it needs to operate optimally. There are many reasons why the air filter might need to be replaced, but one thing is for sure - it does need to be replaced regularly, on average every 50.000kms or so. This is just a rough estimate, and the type of driving you typically do is what really matters. But before I talk about how often you should do it and what the signs of a faulty Toyota Surf air filter are, let's see what air filters do, and what type of aftermarket air filters you can find when looking for a replacement.

Pocket knives are handy and compact tools that can be used for both general and self-defence purposes. Although small, pocket knives can be quite strong and extremely durable whilst featuring an ergonomic design. This multi-purpose tool can help you open boxes, letters and peel fruit while at home or when out fishing, camping or when scraping away rust or wet glue. You basically have the capability of a kitchen knife in your pocket. But aren't they the same thing as Swiss army knives?

Camping can be one of the best ways to enjoy the great outdoors in your spare time.

Starting from the late 1800s and onwards, motorcycles have advanced a lot, from hydraulic forks and multi-cylinder engines to ABS braking, RBW throttling and electronic fuel injection. All these fancy terms and more, have made motorcycles more sophisticated than ever, both on paper and on the road. With so much functionality on board, problems are bound to occur and it is often the main components that are being affected the most.
