Clean & Repair Your Bike, Check Tire Pressure, Etc Copenhagen is so bike-friendly (something that the rest of the world should definitely learn from ) that even a giant oil company like Norway's Statoil is trying to be cyclist-friendly. This bicycle care station is part of a gas station, and it allows cyclists to clean their bikes and tune them up. Wouldn't it be great if such bike care stations were found everywhere in most cities? It's not as important as primary infrastructure like safe bike lanes and bike storage, but support infrastructure like this helps, if only to increase the visibility of biking as a legitimate way to get around.
