[Image taken 20.8.22] Deangate, York. The racks are still too close to the kerb (see: #182113. But the bollard is protecting the endspace. There’s room for a ‘york’cycle – a wider and/or longer design bespoke or adapted for one or a ... [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 26.4.22] Deangate, York. Context: #182113. Two lots of racks in a very practical location, with excellent natural surveillance (security), and if this rack is full there's always the next one, and vice versa. Other images today ... [more]

[Image taken 25.1.22] Blake Street, York. This man’s cycle has permanent panniers. (That makes it a ‘York’cycle – set up for utility use.) He has a typical chap’s shape – no bum, no tum, and the widest part of him is his shoulde ... [more]

[Image taken 25.1.22] Blake Street, York. The minimum space between uprights/supports of Sheffields is 100cm. But this is too little to be practical and comfortable (see: #177859). I think 150cm should be provided within clumps of racks: #1 ... [more]
