The concept for the Mountain Bike Shetler began with the idea of creating a series of pitch roof in the form of timber rafter structure, and each structure is spaced to create sufficient space for bike parking. The pitched roofs and natural materials form a mountain-like shelter, which blend into the surrounding mountainscape. Under this one big shelter are toilets, first aid kiosk and communal space. Sunlight shining through, breeze blowing through, the shelter provides abundant shading, giving bikers a pleasant space to enjoy the nature.
