BICYCLE CENTER:  Congested São Paulo to open free cyclist hub
Infamous for its traffic congestion, São Paulo has worked for years to improve rapid transit and to provide bike lanes and bike-share kiosks. Now, it will have something more for cyclists: a massive new headquarters for all their needs. 
Nora Lamm reports for Global Site Plans that South America’s largest city begins construction this week on the “Largo Bike” facility. It will feature bike parking, showers, maintenance and repair along with restrooms and changing stations. Rentals will be available through Bike Sampa, the local bike-share service. Use of the facility will be free to registered users. 
Underscoring the city’s commitment to promoting cleaner transportation, the cycling hub will be open 24-hours-a-day. São Paulo approved the structure, which opens this month, in response to record levels of congestion on its roads, the article says. The city already has an extensive network of bike lanes covering 260 km (162 miles).
