Normalexcuses for not riding a bike to office range from arriving to workladen with sweat to arriving wet during rainy season. All these excuseswon’t be much relevant if your office houses the solar-powered bikeparking pods that do much more than keeping your bike safe from harshclimate. Designed by Penny Farthings Pushbikes, the solar-powered bicycle parking pod comes with change rooms, showers, a self-cleaning system and the use of recycled water.
Theparking pod is 2.4m wide and 5m long, with enough space to fit twoshowers, two change rooms, ten lockers and ample space to park 10 bikesas well. The first of the parking pods have been installed atQueensland University of Technology’s Kevin Grove campus.
