Lane Love: London

How many bicycles park in the space of one car? About 10, as illustrated by this awesome bike rack in London. The rack, designed by Cyclehoop, a firm of award-winning designers and architects who specialise in producing innovative indoor and outdoor cycle parking solutions.

The “car” bike port is made out of steel and anchored into the ground with bolts so it is good and sturdy. At the same time, it is a flat pack design, so that it is simple to transport and set up at events. It can also include a bike pump and be used for branding…

The stand is an ironic take with a serious message. Cars cause pollution and congestion, and their parking spaces could be dedicated to bikes, not cars.

Have a lane that you love? Send us a photo! You can post it to our Facebook page, shoot us an email at blog[at]ospreypacks[dot]com or upload to our Flickr group and we might just feature it here on our weekly photo feature, Lane Love.

Free Bike Parking: Taiwan

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!

One of Bikehugger’s bloggers was recently on a trip to Taiwan, where he snapped this shot. Anyone else know of any other good bike parking signs out there? We’re debating on starting a collection…


Whether your pack was purchased in 1974 or yesterday, Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge.
