[Image taken 27.9.22] Screwfix, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Context: #186175, #186206. No space again for my cycle in the racks today. Two spaces used by staff cycles - no racks, no luggage, no attachments. A customer came out of the shop and rode off as I locked my cycle necessarily only to itself. During the time I was here with the manager another customer used the racks. How many more people could or would if the cycle parking were accessibly and comfortably spaced, and without the kerb for starters? Note also the motorcycle. There's a second one too - the other side of the cycle parking bay. Both belong to staff. There's no designated motorcycle parking. The manager said a surprising number of customers use this mode of transport. And you can use a motorcycle - perhaps a trike - as a mobility aid, just as you can a cycle. The one in view is on the pavement linking this entrance to Screwfix with the Electric Center (see: #186212). In the hour I was here, three or more people visited both outlets and necessarily had to use the newly created space between the chain and the cycle parking. If there had been a long cycle - perhaps with a trailer - they'd have had to walk in the disabled parking space. If that space had been in use, they'd have had to walk in the car park... On my three or four visits since Screwfix put in the chain and the notices I haven't seen anyone park here... Though there were repeated drivers who used the free space (as they saw it) in front of the entrance to the shop. Yet not one bought an item that could not be carried in just one hand. Other image today and links: #186340.
