[Image taken 3.6.22] Just outside the castle grounds, opposite the public toilets, Knaresborough. It's terrific there's cycle parking provision here. The Cyclehoop design has the practical Sheffield-style supports. They are linked (toastrack) but the rails do not have an upstand. This makes them accessible. Unfortunately the rack is too close to the kerb - even standard length cycles don't fit, and become unstable - which negates the accessible design. (I'll report this.) The London Cycling Design Standards (content.tfl.gov.uk/lcds-chapter8-cycleparking.pdf) say racks should be a minimum of 0.9m from a kerb/upright. This is practical. The latest Government advice is LTN 1/20 (assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/951074/cycle-infrastructure-design-ltn-1-20.pdf). It specifies a minimum of 50omm and recommends 700mm - not enough in my experience. It's also a 'waste' of this design - the Car Bike Port from Cyclehoop www.cyclehoop.com/product/racks/car-bike-port/ The 'car' likely goes unnoticed. Perhaps the point is that the provision is flexible - it could be relocated if there were an event for example at which cycle parking/additional cycle parking were required. Perhaps. It was a family of three using it when I took this image. The father said it was easier/safer for the son (8) to cycle up the narrow, steep streets than to walk - there's no pavement on one stretch. We left our cycles at the station on the platform we got off at: #183263. Other images today and links: #183261
