The Netherlands has long been known for being one of the most bicycle-friendly countries on earth. They’re doubling down on that reputation, with the opening of the world’s largest bicycle garage in Utrecht. Able to house over 13,500 bicycles (!), the sleek, modern garage makes the bike racks in the US look like a joke.

Designed by Ector Hoogstad Architects, the garage allows riders to coast underground into a sleek tunnel that directs them to the various parking spots.

In an era of rapidly changing climate, we’re encouraged to see cities like Utrecht take carbon-free transportation seriously. Via DesignBoom:
