Hey everyone!  I’m pretty excited to share the tutorial for this bike rack with you today.  This project came out of necessity.  As in, I needed it or I would I was going to lose my mind.  For all of you parents out there, I’m sure you can relate to the seemingly constant pile of bicycles and scooters.  I only have two kids, but I swear it feels like we have ten with the bikes, the scooters, the skateboards, etc.  If they lay their bikes on top of each other, the pedals get tangled in the spokes, helmets always get lost, you can’t walk through the garage, I could go on and on.  I decided enough was enough and came up with plans for a bike rack that would also hold their scooters AND helmets!  I’ve got the step-by-step tutorial for you, but you can also download the printable plans below. 

Step 1: Assemble the base. Drill 1 ½” pocket holes into 36” pieces. Using wood glue and 2 ½” pocket screws, clamp and attach to 17” side pieces. Step 2: Attach back. Drill 1 ½” pocket holes into 30” back pieces. Attach flush with back of base using wood glue and 2 ½” pocket screws. Step 3: Attach cross supports. Drill 1 ½” pocket holes into each end of 36” cross pieces. Clamp and attach to back with wood glue and 2 ½” pocket screws. Attach top piece flush with top of back pieces. Attach middle brace 10 7/8” down from top piece. Step 4: Attach 2x2s. Measure ½” in from each end of the base. Place 2×2 pieces on each end and drill a pilot hole into the top and bottom of the 2×2. Screw 2” wood screws into into the 2x2s attaching them to the base and the back, making sure to check for square on the back. Starting on one side, measure 2 ½” and attach the remaining 2×2 pieces. Step 5: Gather all of your supplies to paint the finished bicycle rack.  Straining the paint, even a brand new can, is so important.  You don’t want to get started painting and have to stop because there’s globs of paint clogging your sprayer.   Step 6: Dilute the paint.  I used water-based latex paint, so it’s diluted with water.  If you’re using oil-based paint, follow the instructions on the can for how to dilute it.  HomeRight includes all of the handy instructions on how much to dilute your paint, so you’ll get the optimum performance out of your Finish Max. Step 7: Paint the entire bike rack with 2-3 coats of paint.  I say up to 3 coats because the wood likes to soak up the paint, and it’s going to be used and abused by kids, so the more protection it can get the better. Step 8: Attach the coat hooks to the front of the bike rack to hang helmets. My boys absolutely love their new bike rack!  They think it’s so cool that there’s room for their scooters and that they can hang their helmets up.  I think they got tired of losing them too. Don’t forget to download the printable plans to build your own!  If you have built one, I’d love to see it!  Just shoot me an email with photos or give me a shoutout on social media to be featured!   DISCLOSURE:  I am HomeRight brand ambassador.  I was compensated and/or provided product for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.  This post contains affiliate links.  If you purchase a product from one of these links, I will receive a commission at no extra cost to you.

    YOU READ MY MIND. I’VE BEEN TRYING TO THINK HOW TO SOLVE THE BIKE PROBLEM (4 KIDS AND 2 PARENTS!) I ALSO HAPPEN TO HAVE AN OLD CRIB TO UPCYCLE. I’M GOING TO GO MEASURE AND SEE IF USE PART OF THE CRIB SLATS TO HOLD THE BIKES…. THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION:) And the plans!

      That would be an awesome upcycle! And you can definitely just adjust the length of the bike rack to hold more bikes/scooters.

    Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for I love this. A bike rack is on my plans to make tomorrow, but do you know if an adult bike will fit in this? I need one to store the kids bikes and mine and the hubbys bike.

      I would assume it would. You can always do a dry fit before attaching the 45 degree pieces and see if maybe you need to make a few of them spaced a little wider

    YUP. DEFINITELY TRYING THIS ONE OUT. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS, MAN.

    IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, I COULD SEE BIKE RACKS THAT SPELL OUT NAMES (LAST NAMES I GUESS) I MEAN INSTEAD OF DIAGONAL RACKS WHERE THE WHEELS GO, THEY HAVE LETTERS! HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE THOSE ARE MADE”?

    CHEERS! AND AWESOME WORK!!

    Made this today! Very easy and fits little kid bikes wonderfully. I adjusted the spacing to 3 1/2 inches for the razor scooters because I wanted them to fit in farther. Also it didn’t fit my older girls bicycles but I adjusted a few measurements and made a bigger one for them. Thanks for the free plans!!

    • Addicted 2 DIY Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for says

      I’m so happy that you like it! Yes, it’s so easy to customize it to fit whatever you like!

    This is a decent project, I took the afternoon to build it as I had a little time and some left over wood. I followed the instructions right up to the spacing of the slots… which was a mistake. If you build this try a couple different spacings before you glue and screw your slot boards in permanently. 2.5 inch spacing is too wide to hold up many tire sizes.

  7. Rebekah says

    Just getting into this whole DIY building scene… And those clamps are amazing. My whole life would be better… well, at least less frustrating, if I had a set of those. What are they called? Love the plans and will be using my scrap pile to make one of these this weekend for sure! Thank you!

    • Addicted 2 DIY for 1 last update 2020/05/31 sayssays

      They’re bar clamps. There are so many different kinds, but these were cheap ones from Harbor Freight.

    **Warning** This bike rack will not fit larger kids bikes very well and adult bikes will not fit at all. I built this to exact measurements and the middle support beam is too low and prevents 20″ wheels to fit in all the way. If you move the middle support beam up enough to fit, the the 1 last update 2020/05/31 2×2 “wheel holders” will no longer line up. Also, the 2 1/2″ between the 2x2s is too big of a gap. Reduce to 2″ or else the bikes will flop over and lean to the sides.**Warning** This bike rack will not fit larger kids bikes very well and adult bikes will not fit at all.

    Built it. Does not work with adult bikes unless you want to back the bikes into the rack. Then it’s works okay for 4 or 5 adult bikes. The 45 degree pieces just need to be longer. Maybe go all the way to the top part. Great design for kids though!!

    This is great.
    I made a rack based on this design, with my big Boy, (5.5 years old)
    Since I the 1 last update 2020/05/31 have no pocket hole Jig, we used just simple board on board and screws.
    which he loved – gave him more Power drill usage 😉This is great.

      Glad you like it! It’s awesome when the kids get to help with projects. Start them young:)

    Now instead of having a bunch of lumber laying around in my garage, I have a cheap bike rack that looks great. It’s the perfect alternative to those expensive commercial bike racks. Thanks for the great idea.

      Hi Jessica,

      Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Originally I had the plans available for free. I now charge a small fee for them. The image on pinterest that brought you to my site may have been an old one. I apologize for the confusion.

      Hi Bethany,

      Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for All of the details for the angles and cut list can be found in the printable plans. Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Angela,

      I’m so sorry you had problems with it fitting bikes. I built it to fit smaller bikes (20″ and below) and it has worked great for us.

    I just ordered the plans, thank you so much! If I make the dimensions bigger to fit adult bikes, will it still hold up kiddo sized bikes? Do you know easy dimensions to do this? Thank you!

      So sorry for the delayed response. If you make it taller and deeper, you should still be able to fit smaller bikes. I wouldn’t change the width between the angled pieces.

  13. Korine says

    I just built this (or at least a version of it!) yesterday. I modified the HECK out of the plans so adult bikes would fit, but the plans were still very useful and worth the money. I also modified it to avoid dealing with pocket screws by just putting the boards on top of one another. I don’t care that the boards aren’t all flush.
    I made it 4′ long and skipped the crossbar halfway down the back. I attached the diagonal pieces for in between the bikes directly to the top crossbar (so an angle other than 45 degrees was needed – it ended up being close to 30 degrees on the bottom and 60 degrees on the top. AND the diagonal pieces needed to be ~30″). I also increased the spacing between the diagonal pieces to fit adult bikes. I used fewer diagonal pieces and spaced them either 6″ or 6.5″ apart. There’s parking for 7 bikes.
    When modifying plans like this, which I do ALL the time – it’s like modifying a recipe for me! – I measure and adjust as I go. So with this one, I built the frame and when it came time to put in the diagonal pieces, I put bikes in place to make sure the spacing was good.
