[Image taken 2.9.22] Home Bargains, Clifton Moor/Rawclife, York. I returned today. I found - just - four Sheffield stands (cycle racks) but was unable to use them as the usable spaces were full. Could they be the 'staff provision' too? The racks are under cover - a positive - but there is just 60cm between the uprights. Understandably, the ends of racks were in use. (Another thing I learned about substandard cycle parking – if you have flowers in your pannier and you need to lean that side of the cycle against the wall, you will break at least some of the stems/heads.) Space is not a problem here. I will email planning about the racks being less than the minimum CYC stipulates and half the recommended distance of 120cm between uprights. If the spacing between the racks were a minimum of 120cm - ie usable comfortably by people with baskets, panniers... and family/friend groups sharing locks, the ends of racks could be marked with disabled or family or cargo cycle parking stickers. Other images this problem today: #185921, plus a further issue: the location of the racks: #185922. Earlier image and links about the (lack of) cycle parking at this retail park: #185881.
