Bike Parking Garage

Before our trip to the Netherlands, we started to discuss parking garages for bikes as an idea to be taken into consideration for our project. Being in BCN has made me realize how much more people use bicycles in urban areas. However I had no idea that bike were as popular as they are in the Netherlands. Its seems as though bikes make up the handrails between the roads and canals. (If you look hard enough you will notice the handrail under their too.) On our first tour, we were able to pass by a parking garage for bicycles. Wow.. that’s a lot of bikes. I think everyone and their brother has a bike in Amsterdam.
