[Image taken on 27.3.22] Deangate, York. Two adult cycles, one with a child seat with a balance bike strapped to it. This illustrates the sort of city I want to live in: parents can cycle with a child onboard. They are teaching the child to be independently mobile. They feel the city has spaces safe enough for the child to learn to ride. Theft is low such that people can leave a helmet and an additional piece of kit unattended. Context: #180526. Note the owners have used the end space. There's more room plus, no less critically, there's no upstand. The linking rails on 'toastrack'-style Sheffields (like here) can be high. If a cycle does not have a long enough wheelbase to straddle the two rails, one wheel will rest on one and the cycle will be unstable (see: #175857). Another reason a cycle can be unstable is when the rack is too close to an upright - even a kerb as at the neighbouring rack: #180534. Other images today: #180522.
