[Image taken 22.12.20] Lidl, James Street, York. [Note: No streetview at this location.] The typical cycle in York I see is equipped for practicality and utilitarian use: panniers or other luggage carrying capacity that remain in situ at all times, ditto at least one child seat. There are six cycles here all showing what I mean. Not a skinny, lightweight, built-for-speed machine among them. This means racks need to be wider spaced than the 1m provided. Increasing numbers of people use longer machines (with cargo or human carrying capacity) so we need space that accommodates these too (see: #179009). The racks here were re-spaced to meet council minimum standards. But they are on a slope. It is difficult to keep a heavy cycle in situ when loading it (see: #179010). Not good at any time and definitely unsafe if the 'load' is human. See also: Lidl racks: #166685, #166686, #166687, #166688. Consequences of a slope: #166689, #166690, #166691, #179500.
