[Image taken 8.6.22] Ware & Kay, Sentinel House, Peasholme Green, York. It's disappointing a solicitor's (www.warekay.co.uk/) so close to the centre of a city where many people cycle only has 'wheelbenders'. The location is good - easy to find - but this design offers no support and no way of locking the frame as well as the wheels to an immovable object. Some insurance companies will not cover cycles not secured to an immovable object. It also does not accommodate cycles that are used by some people with disabilities Manoeuvring a cycle - backwards and forwards, etc to be able to use a rack can be painful or impossible for some people. And how do you support your cycle if there are no uprights? Or secure it, ditto? There is a huge gap in understanding that people with mobility issues cycle too. Or could. There is a massive chasm in recognising that not providing accessible cycle parking discriminates. People 'get' it when required to install car parking spaces with the disabled symbol but fail to realise they need to provide cycle parking in the same way for the same reason. (See the caption for Screwfix, James Street: #186206.) Compare the cycle parking with the client car parking: #183408 and cycle parking for staff: #183409, #183410, #183411. Other images today: #183404.
