Stretch a couple yards of fabric over a panel or wood frame and fasten it over the whole surround with small squares of Velcro; remove the panel when you want a fire. You'll probably want a light color to held make it blend visually with the walls.

Hang a curtain rod from the underside of the mantel & sew a couple custom (fireproofed) curtains that you can easily move when you want to use the fireplace.

Get a couple of heavy-duty padded hooks and mount them to the wall studs, then hang the bike rack on the hooks, and hang the bike on the rack.
