Clever Bike Rack Concept: Park 10 Bicycles Instead of a Single Car

London firm Cyclehoop came up with an original idea to promote the use of bicycles over vehicles. This ingenious project was commissioned for the London Festival of Architecture and consists of car-shaped bike racks painted in vivid colors. The concept behind this initiative is that ten bicycles take up the space of one car, which is why people should reconsider the role of the two-wheel vehicles. The racks are portable and each fits perfectly in parking spaces especially designed for cars. Easy to assemble, the unusual objects are also equipped with a bicycle pump. According to Inhabitat, it only took a few minutes for the colorful racks to be filled with bycicles, once Cyclehoop installed them for the Festival of Architecture. Are you a biking fan, or would you much rather take your car out for a ride in order to move from one part of the city to another?

    I won’t ever forget the bike parking places in Beijing in the early ’90s, and you had to pay dearly for the privilege of parking. Last fall I was impressed by the “rent a bike” stands around Paris. Similar to the ZipCar concept, you simply find a bike and swipe your credit card … and ride your bike away.
