In August of last year, the city of Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands opened the Bicycle Apple, a bicycle parking facility with a capacity of 970 bicycles. The Bicycle Apple is located next to the train station which promotes the culture of intermodality which is so prevalent in the Netherlands. Existing bicycle parking near the station, parking more than 4,000 bicycles, had already reached capacity.
This is the winning entry to a design competition for bike commuter facilities in Downtown Philadelphia. The all-in-one and masterplan designed by Columbia graduate, Annie Scheel, gives a place in the city for the exploding populations of urban cyclist commuters. The multi-storey bicycle storage facility can hold up to 690 bicycles.
