ditch your car
Bikes are most often seen traveling or resting on the ground — but what’s the harm in switching up what you’re used to every once in a while? In fact, why not decorate your home with the beauty of a bicycle like architect David Baker did in the case of his living room?
Naturally, we advocate for the act of bicycling itself, but there’s definitely something to be said for the aesthetics bikes have to offer in almost any environment. For the sake of practicality, it can be a great space-saver to craft a way to hang your bike in your home (just make sure it’s practical and within reach, not just for aesthetics’ sake). After all, what better way is there to showcase your ride when you’re not on the road than by having it integrated into your home?

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!
If you can get over the looks of the bike (pictured above), which in all its oddness evokes images of über dorky segues, you just might agree with us when we say it’s an exciting bicycle engineering feat. Exaggerations aside, this prototype was developed by French carmaker Peugeot to be an urban ride that’s equipped for carrying a laptop (or even a small laptop backpack) in its very own frame.
