I think this bike lock-up in Ponsonby, Auckland is fantastic. Hey look, it’s the mini version of Hackney’s car shaped cycle-parking space spotted last year:
I spotted this bike rack while walking around Shoreditch on Sunday. It’s designed to only take up the space of one car but provides lock-up space for 10 bikes. There are three of them in Hackney – and if they prove popular, the car will be replaced by permanent cycle parking and the bike racks will move on to new locations. Great idea – and a great way for people to visualise the positive impact cycling has on their environment.
I love the Gaudi-esque design, and the sheer beauty of Gorge Road BMX Jump Park. I imagined it’d be in Canada – but no, it’s a taste of home – Queenstown, New Zealand. Photo by Miles Holden.
