[Image taken 10.11.22] Deangate, York. Flyparked Tier e-cycle. Despite the two lots of cycle parking within a few metres this hire e-cycle has been left on the side of the road. If it fell, it would be a hazard. Tier products overview: #187 ... [more]

[Image taken 12.10.22] Deangate, York. In 2022, CYC agreed a change to the terms of the Tier hire e-cycles (see: #185003, scheme overview: #164663). They can now be left at public cycle parking. But I see some flyparked or, as here are clos ... [more]

[Image taken 31.7.22] Deangate, York. Other image this topic today: #185181. I hadn't seen this design of hitch to attach a child's cycle in its entirety to an adult's. It's a Trail Angel Plus from Halfords: Th ... [more]

[Image taken 17.7.22] Deangate, York. What looks like a broken rack is a folded up FollowMe ( tandem 'hitch'. (And in use: #166269.) They look very practical - perhaps the next stage from a balance bike (a cycle wi ... [more]

[Image taken 25.6.22] York Other image of the e-cargo cycle here today and links: #183747. Extreme case of lock sharing. Two very small red cycles, a larger but still likely a youngster's cycle, and adult rig and the Babboe (e-cargo cycle) ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.22] Deangate, York. [NOTE: The location is approximate.] The buggy is parked independently of the cycle. They are not sharing a lock. They are not connected items (compare with later image of this trailer: #184775). This s ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.22] Deangate, York. Example of locksharing. Though on different sides of the support. This is a waste of an end rack. It could be marked up as for use by wider designs (see: #170174). Other images today and links: #183665.

[Image taken 17.6.22] Deangate, York. The cycle parking is convenient and wellspaced widthwise. But longer cycles are not catered for. The tandem would be vulnerable if it took up space on the carriageway. As it is, it obstructs the pavemen ... [more]

[Image taken 17.6.22] Deangate, York. Second set of well spaced Sheffield racks. The others (see: #183621) fill up faster likely because they are closer to where people want to be. There is a cycle with front carrier and permanent panniers ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The minimum recommended gap between uprights is 100cm. This is a shopping area and also has family groups who would share locks and therefore a ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The gap of just 72cm between the ends of the run of Sheffields is a lost opportunity to create space for wider and longer ('York'cycles) or car ... [more]

[Newer image: #173233] [Image taken 13.8.21] Deangate junction with Minster Yard, York. No loading at any time sign and markings have appeared. Alas, according to the Highway Code, this does not mean people cannot be set down or picked up. ... [more]

[Image taken 8.5.21] Duncombe Place, York. There’s shared use space for the full length of the Minster on this side. This means it’s permeable for people on foot or cycling between Duncombe Place or High Petergate (Bootham Bar end) and ... [more]
