Bike City

With cycling more popular than ever, and London Mayor Boris Johnson set to make London “the most attractive city to cycle in for everybody” with a £913m investment, you can’t help your mind conjuring up images of a total bike city in your head.

Brazilian designer duo Bruno Ferrari and Rodrigo Paranhos have gone one step further than just thinking about it, and recreated a bicycle tyre as the mini rubberised urbanscape of Bike City.

A tremendous amount of detail has been included in the model, from the buildings (complete with windows) to a variety of trees and landscaping, through to individual road markings.

The design remains just a concept at the moment, but the traffic-free roads dotted with mini cyclists (all wearing helmets, if the debate needed any more fuelling!) do look appealing, and perhaps hint at the future of cities worldwide.

Via Cycle Love.

    I would live on that tyre if I was shrunk to size and given a wee little bike and a bike helmet (of course) so I could just ride around all day. This blog is awesome by the way.
