A man walks his bike through the outer entryway of the new $3.1 million bicycle station in Chicago's Millennium Park.

A new state-of-the-art bike storage has just opened in a downtown Chicago park. It has already begun getting many commuters onto bicycles now that they have a secure place to store their wheels.

The $3.1 million facility has a club-like atmosphere in which cyclists can shower and change clothes before heading off to work.
