Cycle parking stands next to the South City Way on Victoria Road. The spacing could be better, and that big sign will get in the way of pedals.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. On a slope or if racks are too close to an object, cycles can't stay upright and topple. This makes loading/unloading difficult. Here it means the cycle takes up more space between Sheffields t ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. The large amount of space between the racks and the car parking means people can park longer cycles here. This cycle, for example, is 190cm long. At the widest point - the handlebars - it is ar ... [more]

I've not seen these before so they might be quite old, but the advice on them about how to securely lock a bike is good. Slightly ironic that it's a University initiative given how bad some of their bike parking is, sadly.

These look like new bike racks not far from the shops in this area.
