I joked that we should try a pulley for storing bikes but having considered it more I think it could work. A bike hanging from the ceiling should still give plenty of clearance for someone walking below. This one from Halfords is what got me thinking about it but others may be available:

We are supposed to be getting storage outside but I'm not sure how that will work with the exit-only door that's there now and there's currently no timeline for it going in anyway.

I'm not sure where the best place would be, main room seems the obvious place as everyone has access, in the alcove would be out of the way, above the fire exit would also be out of the way so long as it didn't cause issues with emergency exiting.

Martin has emailed some councillors about getting bike storage on the street and they've been very responsive so far.

I talked to Jason and he's arranged for us to have 5 extra fobs for the big shutter to the courtyard, can anyone recommend some bike storage we could put in there temporarily?

Can't we just screw those things on the wall that used to be in the Gostins building hallway?

As a short term measure it would surely be a sensible option?

I can't recall the layout - what's it like underneath the metal stairs? Do they keep the rain off the space underneath?

Totally need to get the pulley system for a bike, particularly if it has Martin's POV setup (#881), we were supposed to put on a wheel by now, in case we've forgotten.

It could be a good looking bike pimped out with all the tech detailed in the intro with all the tech detailed in the intro section of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Light and have it for hire.

I'm closing this as there seems to be no way that we're installing pulleys for bike storage. If someone wants to reopen it and change the title to reflect something more likely, feel free.
