The Bikelander -
Say goodbye to your bike storage woes with the latest in innovative bike storage. Introducing: Clug.
I first came across Clug a while ago and hadn't seen anything like it before. Seen as we love getting in the most unique and quirky products for you guys we investigated further and voila. Here they are.

Why we love Clug:
Firstly, have you ever seen a bike storage solution look so good? Clug pride themselves on creating “the world’s smallest bike rack” and rightly so. You should see some people’s faces when you tell them that the tiny packaged cube they are holding is a bike rack.
What you see is what you get when you invest in a Clug. No fancy special attachments or loop holes, just a simple sturdy design that does what it says on the tin. Plus it is super easy to install.
It can be installed anywhere, kitchen, bedroom, dining room, living room, office, downstairs toilet, anywhere that you have spare wall space and where you partner will allow it… Maybe not the bedroom.
Everyone loves a bit of innovation.
They are a massive space saver. Living in a studio apartment may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but what happens to your beautiful bike? It blocks doorways, becomes a coat rack and increases clutter. Clug it and turn a storage woe into an attractive storage solution.
Affordable is a word we all love hearing. Especially when the word applies to a solution to an ongoing problem. Clug retail at £15.99 and is the answer to said ongoing problem.
It’s for everyone, whether you’re a roadie, a hybrid or a mountain biker there is a Clug for you.
If like us you think that your bike is a work of art, display it. In the most functional and attractive way.
Even without the bike mounted it doesn’t look out of place like some home racks would. It’s so small your mother-in-law won't even notice it.
It is super easy to use. Simply align and insert. Then when it's ride time pull it out. No fuss.
You’ll never stop loving your Clug.

The Bikelands story was born out of a love for cycling, a penchant for style and an appreciation for a sustainable transport solution. Cycling is one of life's constants, since my first wobbly 'pedallings' along our street, getting to school, Uni and more recently around the streets of London. A holiday in La Rochelle, France was the inspirational straw that conceived The Bikelands Story.
Bikelands is nestled among all manner of cycle paths and trails and situated within an awesome triumvirate of Devonshire countryside. Whether it is the sandy beaches of Exmouth, the Gateway to The Jurassic Coastline, the ever changing beauty that is the Exe Estuary, or East Devon's hinterland of Woodbury Common, you'll feel as though you've gone to cycling heaven...Those That Ride Discover!
Cycling should be all inclusive, young or old and all those in between. We should also be doing it more often; leaving the car at home when we pop to the shops, even if it's only once a week. For family Bikelands it's a fun, cheap and healthy family day out. The kids always remember these days. But especially it's for you! To blow those cobwebs away and revive the soul.
At Bikelands we see ourselves more of a bicycle emporium rather than a straightforward shop. We’re more leisure than Lycra and more picnic than pain. We have a perfect range of elegant bicycles for town and gentle riding, for the ladies and gentlemen amongst us. Created by the London based team at Bobbin Bicycles.
Fixed wheel and single speed cycling is quickly growing in popularity. From it's underground cult followers of track enthusiasts and couriers. It's now spreading countrywide. If you're thinking about doing it, come and see us! I'm sure you have some questions. We have a great range of bikes from Tokyo Bike, Mango and Foffa. For those already indoctrinated, we know you love to customise. Choose from our wide range of components and accessories, including Brick Lane Bikes.
With our beautiful beaches only minutes away, we had to make sure we offered a classic cruiser too, Electra fits perfectly. Go on...Live the dream!
We think bicycles should have personality too. Whether it's a beautiful leather saddle, pannier, rack, bell or basket, you'll find what you need at Bikelands. Choose from Brooks, Basil and Linus, amongst other less known gems. We also have a wide range of stylish accessories and unusual finds, including Bern helmets, Bookman lights and Oopsmark hand crafted leather wine rack. In fact, we're continuously seeking out quirky, stylish and of course practical cycling accessories so remember to keep popping back.
Since opening Bikelands we are lucky enough to have become part of the community here in Exmouth. Many of our customers have become friends. We get many repeat visitors whether that's the 'locals' popping in for a chat, to see whats new in or returning holiday makers who want a repeat of the wonderful day out they had on our bikes the previous year. So don't be shy, pop in for a chat ... Browse, Borrow, Buy...
Happy cycling, Rebecca, Stuart & Family Bikelands x
