[Image taken 14.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe, York. A second trailer user has found the cycle parking here today. But, people are finding it by chance. This person said previously he'd ridden to the back of the store and put his rig there. He'd fou ... [more]

[Image taken 14.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe, York. On my first visit after the new provision went in I noted (see: #182710) the bollards were sufficiently far back to accommodate manoeuvring and... trailers. This one arrived while I was inside. An ... [more]

[Image taken 9.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. A sign has been added: Cycle shelter only. It's an attractive sign. Alas it is outside of the cycle parking so for some people this is not sufficiently clear/or a nudge to return their ... [more]

[Image taken 26.6.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. Lock sharing. Rack sharing. The space between the supports of this toastrack (linked) Sheffield rack is too limited even to get a tiny bike in the same space as an adult's cycle. The routes a ... [more]

[Image taken 26.6.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Signage for motorists. Including the existence of a car park. The provision of parking for customers arriving in motor vehicles can be taken as a given at out of town/edge of town ret ... [more]

[Image taken 26.6.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Signage has appeared on the walls facing the disabled car parking spaces - in addition to the clear logos and blue paint in the bays. I hope signage 'to' and at the cycle parking will ... [more]

[UPDATE: #184365, #184366] [Image taken 26.6.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Still no signage stating this is cycle parking. (Subtext: Do not leave trolleys here.) My cycling partner moved a trolley in case someone on a cycle arrived ... [more]

[Image taken 26.6.22] Manor Lane, junction with Manor Park Road, York. A fallen temporary works sign is a hazard - barely visible, And the cone couldn't be seen until you got this close. (I moved both off the road/avoiding the pavement.) Th ... [more]

[Image taken 26.6.22] Currys, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. I took the image to illustrate that for cycle parking to be useful and used, it has to be near the destination. Not least at a location people will have luggage - cycle baggage is ... [more]

[Image taken 12.6.22] Hurricane Way, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Context/links: #183545. Note the York barrier - the level level chicane on the left, and the staggered railings on the right. These obstruct the passage of most people with ... [more]

[Image taken 12.6.22] Hurricane Way, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. I'm baffled why there is a new No idling sign here but none at polluted junctions. (Especially where CYC has made changes under the TSAR scheme https://democracy.york.gov.uk ... [more]

[Image taken 12.6.22] The wheelbenders have been removed. But signage is needed to tell people: a) there is cycle parking here; b) where it is. (It's the far side of the shop entrance: #182710). There's a sign at the entrance to the site th ... [more]

[UPDATE: #184365, #184366] [Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The otherwise excellent cycle parking provision needs labelling as cycle parking to dissuade people from returning trolleys here. Other images here today an ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. When I first saw the roof I was concerned about the headheight. But the person standing next to his cycle is 6ft. He said he thought it was fine. Other images here today and links: #1 ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The space between the uprights is 128cm. That's practical and appropriate at a retail outlet in a retail park, where you may go with a child onboard, and/or be buying chunky items, or ... [more]

[Image taken 19.5.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. Excellent cycle parking signage: instantly recognisable as: a) cycle-related, b) parking-related, and visible from quite a distance. But terrible cycle parking... #182705. Other images today: ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. This mobility scooter tucks neatly into a Sheffield rack. The user has to be able to get in and out and may not be able to push it in further. Or perhaps the link rails (also an issue for cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 21.3.22] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Daffs ahead and to the right of the cycle-ped route. This seems no longer to be signposted. (Until some time in 2021 there used to be a cycle direction sign that pointed towards Wiggi ... [more]

[Image taken 21.3.22] Haxby Cycleway, Wigginton Road, Clifton Moor, York. Spring daffs fill this roundabout each year. Visual respite for people on foot and cycles from the almost constant view of motor vehicles on the ring road at the Clif ... [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] KFC, Clifton Moor retail park, York. The two Sheffields (racks) are close to the restaurant entrance - good practice. See also: #174311, #174312. Other images today: #174305 and links.

[Image taken 18.9.21] KFC, Clifton Moor retail park, York. Two Sheffields (racks) at this drive-thru. That's four spaces. Is this the provision for staff as well as customers? And are there delivery cyclists? As this is a retail park I beli ... [more]

[Image taken 12.9.21] Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. This driver is not on yellow lines but s/he is limiting the visibility in both directions of people on cycles and on foot. First time I've seen someone here: there is often ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. More paint and two more cycle symbols. Perhaps in such a wide expanse of tarmac the paint helps people on machines that take up less space orient/position themselves? If everyone used ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. The paint shows that people on cycles are permitted to use the roundabout, perhaps also that they do. Does it therefore also encourage cycling? It doesn't give any protection. Other i ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Cycle lane on exit from Screwfix. Unsegregated. Streetview shows the markings were added between May 2012 and Jun 2015. To turn right I would not use the 'round the outside' rings, I' ... [more]

[Image taken 25.7.21] The approach (on both sides) to the pedestrian crossing between Dunelm and the shared-used cycle-ped-wheelchair link between this retail park and the neighbouring one (see: #161559), has been resurfaced. It had fissure ... [more]

[Image taken 31.5.21] Stirling Road, York. This sign to Wigginton has been repositioned (see: #169128). Now people know which direction to cycle. But I don't know why Wigginton is so important.

[Image taken 21.5.21] Stirling Road, York. Last of four 'Retail Parks' signs installed this year. Aimed at people on cycles or on foot, in fact this one and its companion on the other side of the road (see: #169129) alert all road users to ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Clifton Moor Gate looking towards Hurricane Way, York. Many cyclists crossing here do not want to continue over to join the shared use path on the Sofology side of the road. However, when the toucan is green so too are ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Hurricane Way, York. The path provided for use by everyone who is not in a car is not practical or comfortable. Therefore many (most?) people on cycles use the carriageways. Other images this location today see: #169150 ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Clifton Moor Gate looking towards Hurricane Way, York. It’s not possible to cross in one go. The lights for this toucan are red while the ones for the further crossing to Hurricane Way (with Sofology on the corner) ar ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Hurricane Way, York. From the other side of Clifton Moor Gate (the road the pedestrians are crossing) to here, the design expects people on cycles to use that toucan crossing and the nearest one too to reach the path t ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Hurricane Way, York. This is one of several retail areas in Clifton Moor. Hurricane Way is a no-through road for anyone in a motor vehicle. Yet it merits four carriageways (see: #169160). B&Q even gets its own right tur ... [more]

[Update: #169455] [Image taken 18.5.21] Stirling Road, York. One of three signs installed this year (with one more to come) alerting people to the retail outlets of Clifton Moor off Stirling Road and the cycle routes to/from and between the ... [more]

[Update see: #169821] [Image taken 18.5.21] Clifton Moor, near retail outlets, Stirling Road, York. This direction sign to Wigginton has been knocked. Now out of position it's confusing rather than instructional or inspirational.

[Image taken 9.5.21] Haxby Road junction with A1237, York. Looking in the direction of New Earswick. The route to the right (Haxby Cycleway) through the barriers leads alongside the noisy A1237 to Clifton Moor (retail and leisure parks, res ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Village Street, York. The mud shows that the barriers are not spaced to enable longer/wider cycles to get through on the width of tarmac provided. This suggests there will be people who want to use this route but are u ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Village Street, York. Barriers such as these are literally barriers for many people. It's not just about the width of what you are trying to get through or with but also the length. In the Executive summary of 'Cycling ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. The sign just visible on the lamppost where a track joins the road: #168840 is helpful. On the road, even if you get this far, there is no indication there’s any reason other than for a service ve ... [more]

[Update: #169455] [Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. If you join the shared use path (there’s no drop kerb here) you can see the Dunelm retail outlet to the right. If you continue in that direction you find a comparable sign to the ... [more]

[Update: #169455] [Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. If you get this far, there’s a shared use cycleway on the righthand side. This new sign (April 2021? May 2021?) faces the road and points to Retail Parks in both directions. See ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. There are still no clues this is anything but a service road. The ramps are uncomfortable on a cycle. Despite their existence drivers overtake. See also: #168837 and links

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. This looks and feels like a service road. It feels hostile on a cycle. See also: #168837 and links

[Update: #169455] [Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. The only sign refers to a ‘service area’, ‘units’ and 'deliveries'. Turn left and keep left however and there is a retail park (DfS, JYSK, Pets at Home, Wilko…). There is ... [more]

[Image taken 18.4.21] Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor, York. The width of this shared use path is woefully inadequate: 135cm at its widest, 85cm at its narrowest. It is also unattractive looking - it's not obvious what protection it offers for ... [more]
