# How to build a motorcycle ramp for a shed

## How long should my shed ramp be?

Ideally, you want 2 inches of rise for every 12 inches of run. This will give you a slope of 11 to 12 degrees. For instance, if you have a shed door that is 4 inches above ground level, you need a ramp that is 2 feet long.

## How high should shed be off ground?

The bottom of the shed needs to be at least 4 inches off the ground to allow for air circulation underneath.

## What is a good angle for a ramp?

Bottom line: recommended ramp slope:

The preferred slope for a building access ramp is 1:12 or 1 inch of rise per 12 inches of horizontal run – that’s roughly an 8% slope also written as a 4.8 degree angle slope.

## What is best for shed base?

You can also use a wooden frame or concrete slabs. Using concrete slabs is a very traditional way to build a shed base and although it takes some initial work, it does provide excellent stability in the long term. Below are the steps involved in building a shed base using concrete slabs.

## How do you load a motorcycle without a ramp?

Grab the right handle with one hand and the axle with the other, and lift the front of the bike onto the truck bed. Lift the bike up again until the engine plate is also resting in the truck bed. Grab the rear axle and pull the back tire into the truck.

## How steep can a ramp be?

Maximum slope for hand-propelled wheelchair ramps should be 1″ of rise to every 12″ of length (4.8 degree angle; 8.3% grade). Maximum slope for power chairs should be 1.5″ rise to 12″ length (7.1 degree angle; 12.5% grade).

## How do you calculate the length of a ramp?

How long of a ramp should I buy? Determining Ramp Length: Measure total rise (how many inches from lower level to upper level) and divide by the slope.
