I think the scary thing is that there are that many people in one area, thats how a zombie apocalypse happens.

China: Yup, this sure is eco-friendly!

7 years later, the inner core of earth collapses on itself from an overweight of bikes and kills almost all of Europe.

If all the bikes are already on the surface, what would the magical weight change be that collapsed it if they were 20 feet below the surface?

Good, and then you will have to wait for the 15 other people to get their bike down there, and then you will have to wait again to get it up. Super expensive, and prone to damage.

Don't overdo something as simple as parking bikes. These bikes down there will not fit much space up on the ground anyways

i believe the reason behind this is that, building roads and all sorts of things are above ground, meaning the space is taken, although many things do not take space underground meaning you can create this right below a road so that you can fit for into a small space city wise

I understand your point, but would rather see parking-racks for bikes on the ground. That, or people living in the city should have bikes that are capable of folding together.

The idea is good with this parking system, but the design is horrible. lets say this thing can hold 100 bikes. and costs several million dollars to construct, Then in order to have a sufficient amount of bikes stored, they would have to make thousands of these. + having a horrible maintenance problem.

Finding space in the ground to constuct something like this is not easy in any way. Building-foundations and what they are constucted upon has ratain stability, water, heating and sewer lines can be cut, electric-grid will be reorganised.

It would be nice to make in areas that are planned with new construction, but creating thousands of these in the rock-hard soil of Manhattan would be impossible.

I would spend so much time trying to figure out how to jump in before the door closed. And then I'd probably get cut in half

It would be the same thing as having your bike nicked.

They have the same sort of thing in Japan but for cars. Its like a car elevator and you push the number and it rotates the cars to yours.

The biggest one is in Germany.
Its in the Volkswagen Autostadt. The AutoTürme are silos that house newly built Volkswagen vehicles.
There are two of them.

It is probably very expensive to make, especially in the US.

Looks like it goes down around 30-50 feet. This could interfere with pipelines underground. Also people in America don't use bikes as often as people in Asian countries.

Except in the major metropolitan areas. If it weren't for the smog, New Yorkers would be some of the healthiest people in the world, they walk and bike everywhere.

But especially in metro areas, there are a bunch of things underground that could get in the way of such a structure.

Oh certainly, especially the subways. I was just saying if there is a portion of the U.S. that can touch the Asians in terms of alternatives to vehicles and mass transit, it's New York.

Very true.

If even 1/5 of people who drive switched to biking there would be a notable difference.

I just started driving recently. Today I bought a new bike tire and told my mom when the school year starts and it cools down, I'll just bike to school. She said "Why bike, the school is close. Why not drive?" and I said exactly, the school is close. Why waste precious gas instead of biking three miles to school? The only thing I need my car for is work, because I work the late shift and can't bike home in the dark.

Yeah three miles in nothing.

I know kids at my old high school that lived across the street and would drive.

Because it'd expensive as hell to build and run compared to a metal rack, and also it'd take up a lot of underground space that water pipes, wiring and subway systems already take up.
