At this Drive-In Cafe, Enjoy a Coffee Without Leaving Your Bike

As part of a plan to encourage non-motorized transport in Zurich, the city is experimenting with amenities designed to attract cyclists, including a rethink of a classic symbol of American car culture - the drive-in restaurant.

How do you get even more bikers on the road in an already bike-friendly city? For Zurich, this means making the city's cafe culture more accessible to those on two wheels who are pressed for time.

"As part of a larger Urban Transport 2025 plan that also encourages public transportation and walking, the city is experimenting with new incentives for cyclists, including this bike-up coffee bar," writes Adele Peters. "Like the bike version of a classic drive-in restaurant that lets diners eat without leaving their car, [the Velokafi stand] lets bikers enjoy coffee without getting off their two-wheeled rides."
