Finding reliable bike storage in a big city can be a real challenge, but these German designers have totally gone above and beyond in this bike storage facility design that will have cyclists drooling.

With 260 bike racks, 32 lockers and a full bike rental service, this bike storage facility goes beyond pedal conveyance. The Erfurt, Germany facility also includes many amenities like a cafe, workshops and office space.

The design is also very eco-friendly beyond just encouraging people to leave their cars at home. The bike storage facility is made out of polycarbonate panels that are very energy efficient and are cheaper to replace in case of vandalism. The facility was built after winning a government-offered grant to build the best bike storage design.
