the number of cargo bikes in copenhagen has increased dramatically over the past years. today 6% of all copenhagen households own at least one cargo bike – this adds up to more than 15 000 cargo bikes in the danish capital.

the shell is made of fiberglass and is comprised of four separate cabins, each with room for one bike. this means that four bicycles can park in the space normally taken up by one car.

the ‘car’ has four solar powered ‘headlights’ that turn on after dark.in addition, a solar powered light turns on inside when one of the doors are opened. hooks and a net are mounted on the walls of each cabin, for hanging up wet weather clothing and gear.

  • I love it, very nice, excelent design.

  • nice and cut idea~~ but only for four bicycles…a little bit waste of space…if one car for 8~10 bicycles, that will be perfect…
