With the increase in bike paths and subsequent riders around our cities, cyclers need more options when it comes to storing their bikes.

These quirky, colourful bike racks that double as street art in their respective cities around the world will probably taint the way you see traditional, boring bike racks forever. Because who wouldn’t want to chain their bike up to an over-sized steaming coffee mug or hook it on a giant spinning wheel?

Just in case anyone was confused.

In Roanake, Virginia gigantic combs are used as an effective method of storing bikes.

A ferris-wheel inspired construction from Seoul.

Only in Portlandia.

If you're not getting enough dietary fibre into your diet, here's a sure fire way to kick up your daily intake.

A clever marketing stunt outside Filter Coffee in Washington appears as a vibrant and appealing place to let your bicycle stand while you enjoy sipping a coffee and munching on some cake within.

We're not entirely sure what this New York structure is supposed to resemble, but it does seem like some sort of contorting alien body.

These striking paperclips won't be able to keep budding cyclists away as the bold colours draw in bikes from all around Washington DC.

Bullwinkle? Is that you?

One of David Byrne's NYC designs. Enough said.

This long four-legged glistening red horse from Louisville, Kentucky is a fun way to tie up a bike for a day.
