[Image taken 14.4.21] Sheffields (racks) at Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The aisle (gap between the racks) is just 187cm wide. There was no room for me to be able to reverse out without lifting my cycle. For a second view of this site s ... [more]

[Image taken 14.4.21] Sheffields (racks) in front of Boots and next to Greggs, Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The aisle (gap between the racks) is just 187cm wide. The racks on the other side were in use. Baskets on the front of cycles of ... [more]

See clip at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GELEhVW8WWQ The design of this "cyclepath" clearly falls well below that which users would ever find safe and actively encourages drivers to ignore vunerable road users, potentially lethally.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0gjcSANqr0 Yep, not only do cars pass too close at times, so do cyclists. Of course if a car had been this close it'd have been really dangerous, a cyclist is not as bad. However, you do see m ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la1IsQi-9bM I've learnt to avoid this section of road within a metre or so of the verge as it's very rough and leads to steering issues. This puts me in the middle of the road. Cars just ass ... [more]
