[Image taken 26.6.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. Lock sharing. Rack sharing. The space between the supports of this toastrack (linked) Sheffield rack is too limited even to get a tiny bike in the same space as an adult's cycle. The routes a ... [more]

Usage of the Grand Arcade Cycle Park is now pretty high and it's clear that a shortage of spaces is now developing.

Usage of the Grand Arcade Cycle Park is now pretty high and it's clear that a shortage of spaces is now developing.

Narrow bridge. I grew up near here and we all cycled to our summer jobs - but I'd never seen a lycra-clad cyclist here until yesterday. [update 2022 - since the launch of the CTC's West Kernow Way this year we're seeing a lot of bike-pac ... [more]

[Image taken 25.1.22] Rail station, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] This cycle caught my eye as I pedalled past. It was still on the top layer of the two-storey storage racks (see: #170490) but… the person approaching it ha ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. This mobility scooter tucks neatly into a Sheffield rack. The user has to be able to get in and out and may not be able to push it in further. Or perhaps the link rails (also an issue for cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.22] Deangate, York. [NOTE: The location is approximate.] The buggy seems to be parked independently of the cycle. They are not sharing a lock. There does not seem to be an attachment on either. I conclude they are not rela ... [more]

[Image taken 25.5.22] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. Note how close the trolley parking is: easy to access even with bulky difficult-to-carry cycle luggage, and easy to return the cart without leaving your shopping unattended (compare w ... [more]

[UPDATE: #183750] [Image taken 19.5.22] Rowntree Wharf, Navigation Road, York. Context: #182120. CYC knocked my first report back. I will re-report it. My tyres are quite wide but my wheel got noticeably ‘held’ when I wheeled it into on ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The minimum recommended gap between uprights is 100cm. This is a shopping area and also has family groups who would share locks and therefore a ... [more]

  • Icon 183775 Unsafe for walkers when the road is busy. Inter visibility is very poor. Anxious drivers do not notice pedestrians
  • Icon 183774 20mph speed limits to enable active travel of all types.
  • Icon 183773 Popular tourist attraction needs a pedestrian crossing and a 20 mph speed limit.
  • Icon 183761 Motorists and cyclists can enter from five directions. This busy crossing could be made safer with clear markings indicating where pedestrians and cyclists should cross. Pedestrians, often with children, come to and from the popular Bede Park. There are also electric scooters, roller-skaters, skateboarders, and delivery cyclists. On the pavement outside the Western Pub there are stands for the electric hire bikes. Motorists are sometimes tempted to speed up or down the Wilberforce Road hill. It would be great to have measures to slow motorists down for this junction.
