Bike Pals



Check out this detail, something I noticed on one of the trips to Scandinavia.  The stone mini-ramp is nice addition to a stone staircase, so that commuter cyclists that easily walk their bikes up the steps.

SwingDaddy comments that it might also be used for hand trucks rolling equipment.  Or I suppose someone handy with a wheelchair.

Interesting--I hadn't thought about it as a bike ramp. Pretty cool!

Smart! I was reading recently about bike "highways" for commuters that feature regularly placed air pumps, and footrests (for stopped bikes) at intersections.
