Cyclists in Zurich, Switzerland, can now enjoy a cup of coffee from the comfort (a relative term) of their bikes thanks to the Velokafi. The stand was specially designed to give cyclists a place to sit and relax while they're out and about. Those who saddle up to the Velokafi and check in using Foursquare or Facebook are greeted with a cup of coffee.

The bicycle-friendly coffee bar is meant to encourage people to ride their bikes more. For starters, bikers are given a free cup of coffee. Additionally, they get to watch over their bikes while they relax. The Velokafi is part of a broader plan by the Zurich city officials to ease traffic congestion in the city while also offering perks to cyclists and pedestrians.
