[Treehugger] Be Green and Clean (i.e. Not Sweaty) When Biking to Work

Talk about your all-in-one solution to the problem of riding to work and then needing a shower and/or change of clothes, the folks at Penny Farthings Pushbikes in Brisbane (Australia) have come up with the Green Pod – a solar-powered bike storage unit that has change rooms, showers, a self-cleaning device and use of recycled water. What’s amazing is that the parking, lockers, 2 showers and 2 change rooms have the footprint of your regular (car) parking space! Check out the Treehugger article on the Green Pod.

It’ll likely take a while before we see anything like this in the US, but one can dream. However, Penny Farthings Pushbikes’ other bike-parking productsare the kinds of things that would be useful, practical and possible here right now.

Thanks to the hot dude, happy new Dad and my good friend, Doug Johnson, for the link.

There is something about shared public showers that just makes my skin crawl! Otherwise... great idea!

I always wonder how they do these so they are private and safe. I've been sweating so much the last week, that I could really use more than just somebody's sink.

Pretty! I once visited a bicycle parking garage in Denmark that played music. How about they include that too? ;)
