A triangle of new paving has been placed to the side of the large barrier at Buchanan Wharf, because people were walking across the flower bed to get past the barrier. This is also the cycle diversion for NCN756 until the cycle track at … [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Toft Green, York. City of York staff cycle parking. Secure by Design recommend smaller clumps of racks as they give oversight. But perhaps this site is sufficiently secure that is not a concern. However the aisle is too … [more]

[Image taken 22.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The cones have been moved. They no longer protect that space where the white car is from being parked on: see #169488. They also now reduce the space for people to pass through and are an … [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York. The problems (lack or only difficult access to/from the Sheffields) could have been prevented or mitigated by the aisle between the racks and the Tier scooter/cycle parking bays confirming to best … [more]

One of the things Eddington does do well is provide seating in various forms.

A dropped kerb for cycling from Cavendish Street towards the South City Way, but now it is aligned with a large patch of grass, so requires awkward turns to get around.

Visit Clerkenwell Design Week ... and advise them on some cycle parking strategies!

See clip at An update from It looks like someone has successfully pointed out that the barriers are too close together. Although I'd still suggest there's a better way … [more]

See clip at As I say in the clip, Cambridge Institute of Astronomy does provide well for cycling to work here and through routes. It's just that their approach to new development seems to be stuck in an era … [more]

NCN1 southbound sign. Just avoiding the hanging baskets. The text size (x-height) on this sign is very small. This makes the sign hard to see.


Useless cycle lanes #1 Location: Newhaven, Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom) Why bother? Does this help anyone? No. You've got to feel sorry for the people who have to paint these bizarre white lines. Can anyone think this is useful to … [more]

Lighting embedded in the railings of the new cycle / pedestrian bridge over the M20.

Anti motorcycle barrier (York style) There is a swing barrier and cattle grid to keep animals out and narrowing intended to allow wheelchair access but not motorbike access

Awesome! This spectacular piece of design - which occupies the same space as one car - provides secure cycle parking for ten bicycles. Created by...
