[Image taken on 5.4.22] High Petergate, York. A Kettwiesel recumbent trike - see another example : #182744 ( It has panniers and a box. It is also used for touring? Was it in use for that purpose here today? Such shapes and sizes of cycle are common in Germany, the Netherlands, etc. Yet York could be an excellent destination for all ages of cyclist and all aspirations for destination and distance. (I’ve been lobbying Make it York to develop a strategy for attracting visitors who cycle.) It’s important that this design of rig is seen more often on our streets and routes: then planners must include them in their designs for routes and cycle parking. The toastrack Sheffields here are sufficiently widely spaced that there is room for this cycle and an upright two-wheeler within the space between two sets of uprights - how Sheffields are intended to be used. Viewed from the back I could see the person had had to get it over the first linking rail with its upstand. (Toastrack Sheffields near here with no upstand: #179878. Comment on upstands at nearby racks: #178203 and links.) Fortunately for the user, the long wheelbase meant the rear wheels remained outside of the linking rails. The location of these racks is easy to find. It's right near the Minster (a destination) and at the start of the pedestrian area with its shops and cafes (destinations). There is level access.
