[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The gate across Racecourse Road is open to motor traffic. When open to motor vehicles it creates a third barrier for people using the cycle-ped-wheelchair route parallel to the racecourse. Staggered barriers make access difficult even for people who are fit, ablebodied, and with cycles with two wheels and no adaptations or luggage. A City of York employee told me these were installed following the death of a cyclist here in 2008: www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/9473476.york-racecourse-charged-over-death-of-cyclist-ruby-milnes/ See also: #168848, #168849, #168851, #168852, #168853, #168854, #168855, #168856, #168857 and links.
