Urban living is great: city living offers vibrant night life, the opportunity to shop until you drop and quick access to major transport routes. Everything is accessible and there are few drawbacks – with one major exception. City living doesn’t usually include a garage or a garden and, if you love life in the great outdoors, that can be a drawback. But there is a solution.
Self-storage is usually seen as a means of de-cluttering, as a temporary space to store your treasured possessions securely during a home makeover or while living abroad, or for commercial storage. But for city dwellers, thinking outside of the box might well open new opportunities to enjoy outdoor sports, particularly if you live in Manchester. Using self-storage creatively would allow you to get fit, learn a new sport or develop skills in something you already do. Here’s how.
Salford Quays offers canoeing and kayaking right in the heart of the city. So don’t keep renting a canoe – buy your own and store it. It won’t be long before you’ll be venturing further afield to try some river canoeing – there are plenty of paddling opportunities – for beginners to experienced white water canoeists.
The National Cycling Centre in Manchester has nurtured some keen cyclists, but there are plenty of other opportunities for cycling in the city, including along the canal, or the Orbital Cycleway around Manchester Airport. At just eight miles, it’s ideal for family cycling. Get kitted out with mountain bikes and get cycling.
Further afield is the stunning splendour of the Peak District where you can climb, cycle, canoe or kayak to your heart’s content. Whatever your ability or experience, Manchester and its surroundings offer ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoor life. Flexispace provides the perfect solution for storing the mountain bikes, canoes, wetsuits, life jackets and climbing ropes that you just don’t have room for in your city home. With space varying from a shower cubicle to a tennis court, you can be sure to find a space that is just right for you. And with the flexibility that is available, you can change your space as your equipment store grows.
There’s no need to move to the suburbs for more space. Enjoy the outdoor life right on your city doorstep with our flexible storage solutions.
