The Biceberg – Automated Bike Parking System

1680965-inline-biceberg

The Biceberg takes your bike (and–even better–your helmet and a bag) on an elevator ride to a protected below-ground area. When you want it back, just swipe a card and it’s automatically elevated back up to you.

In 2009, I posted this blog about a bike escalator.  However, The Biceberg is an entirely different animal.  This unique system is currently being used in cities across Spain with expected expansion across Europe.  Four different sizes are made to hold anywhere from 23 to 92 bikes underground.  When storing their bike, the user gets an access card and personalized code which makes it safe and very hard for bike thieves.  This is a very unique system that saves space and is ideal for urban areas.  You can find photos and read more by clicking  here.
