Journey Planner - plan a cycle journey to
[Image taken 18.7.22] Skeldergate, York. Looking south - re-opened Terry Ave turning on the left, up to Bishopgate Street, right. Further examples of the speed cushions CYC resorts to when there is speeding despite their: a) not slowing drivers at all - most vehicles can, comfortably, straddle them; b) being an obstruction and a hazard to trike users; c) being positioned where a cyclist should be on the road - about a metre out. At this location they add a further hazard for people on cycles. In this direction we have just come through a chicane that puts us on the right-hand side of the road. If there is oncoming traffic, we don't want to be in the centre of the road - drivers don't cede space, we don't want to go over the cushions, and we don't want to be 'in the gutter' not least as most of us are turning left into Terry Ave and need to be positioned to do so. Then there's the other matter of the damaged road surface on the left and the cracked centre line that can trap or 'hold' a cycle wheel. Other image Skeldergate today and links: #184901.
