How Do You Know,

where to park your bicycle?

 with these cute bicycle stands you no longer have to ask the question,

Japanese industrial designer Yuma Kano has created a steel bicycle stand that’s shaped like a bicycle, at 362mm wide and 219mm high (roughly 14 x 8.5 inches) the bicycle-shaped stand can be drilled into the ground creating an adorable, easy-to identify parking area,

 Kano’s inspiration for the project stems from the chaotic and often ugly way that bicycles get parked in Japan, which renders serene environments into heaps of spokes and metal. “It is designed to solve the problem of randomly parked and bunched up bicycles on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots,” said Kano, because “this bicycle-shaped bicycle stand also functions as a sign that anyone can read.”

 the On Bicycle Stand was awarded Japan’s prestigious Good Design Award, is available on Kano’s website for 17,820 yen (at today's rate £121.80 or $158.10), it’s available in bolted style that can be secured to the ground or a plate style, which simply rests on the ground and can be moved around, and no I am not on commission, I just thought the stands looked neat.
