Japan has an ingenious system that lets people store their bikes in underground vaults in several different cities.  It’s called the Eco Cycle System and it costs around $25 a month. It’s simple, just roll your bike into a kiosk and then swipe your card.  The loading mechanism then takes it into an earthquake-proof underground space where it stays dry and safe until you come back and use your card to retrieve it. The whole process takes about eight seconds. #Wow
