A Dutch Project Team Learned to Shift Gears to Build the World's Largest Bicycle Parking Garage
So many bicycles, not enough parking. That's the problem for cities across the Netherlands, where cycling is a way of life, with 1 in 4 people riding bikes to work. Pedal power is even greater in Utrecht, the country's fourth-largest and fastest growing city. With almost half of all trips of less than 7.5 kilometers (4.6 miles) completed via bicycle, two-wheel traffic began to create a bike jungle at the city's urban core.
