[Image taken 12.11.21] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The cycle is ‘secured’ only by the front wheel. I suggested the owner turn his cycle sideways across the ‘wheelbenders’ and secure the frame on his next visit. Other captions ... [more]

[Image taken 12.9.21] B&Q, Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The front of this B&Q outlet has had a makeover see: #174070. The disabled car parking remains. It's easy to find (it's on the right as you enter the B&Q retail park), ... [more]

Bike parking in front of the Mole Creek Supermarket

The crime here is the wheelbenders on this fairly new building.

[Image taken 30.6.21] Monks Cross, Huntington, York. Wheelbenders. Lots of space to replace them with roll in, roll out Sheffields accessible to and spaced for people with mobility issues and even the heaviest, widest designs of cycles. Per ... [more]

[Image taken 16.2.21] The Asda at Monks Cross, York, has Sheffield stands (some under cover) and wheelbenders. The Sheffields are behind the photographer and to the left ie adjacent to the wheelbenders in this image. Staff definitely use th ... [more]

Total shit at the arse end of the car park. Do better @asda and maybe our towns wouldn't be so clogged with motor vehicles. This is a town centre store in the middle of Warrington FFS. See also #84872.

Never seen a hybrid of wheelbenders and Sheffield stands all on a toast rack!

Close to leisure centre door - not clear if for users only.

Wheelbenders at a refurbished restaurant

Wheelbenders at the St Nicholas Retail Park - two bikes locked to the roof supports and the man in the background has ignored the wheelbenders in favour of locking to the trolley racks. I'm pretty sure wheelbenders were not acceptable when ... [more]

Wheel-twister cycle stands mounted a bit high up on the wall outside Ravenglass station.

Wheel-grabber cycle parking in Bembridge

The sign says that there have been bike thefts recently, with locks being cut. Part of the problem is these dreadful cycle racks that make it very difficult to secure a bike properly.

East Chesterton methodist polling station wheelbenders, for @smithsam @camcycle

Five wheeltwisters are provided for anyone cycling to New Douglas Park.

Cycle parking in a new development. It is very disappointing to see utterly useless wheelbenders have been installed. Shame on Cambridge city council planning department for letting this happen.

This is covered cycle parking in a new development. It is very disappointing to see utterly useless wheelbenders have been installed. Shame on Cambridge city council planning department for letting this happen.

The cycle parking in this part of the Leys school is rather ancient, but at least it is conveniently located.

Butterfly Style (not wall hoop)

Cycle parking, Ars-en-Ré

Dreadful wheelbender cycle racks that should only be used for displaying bikes in a bike shop being used as 'cycle parking' at the Golden Hind pub. Lots of bikes attached to railings and posts - an thoroughly disappointing cycle parking exp ... [more]

Concrete slots - the most dreaded form of cycle parking. But at least here there is a wall chain - presumably put there at some point to provide an anchor for bikes. All the bikes in this area are parked in the courtyard. See #56943.

Some crummy, insecure wheelbenders in the housing along here.

Crummy wheelbender cycle parking outside a super market in Fulbourn.

Grim wheelbenders at Barnwell Road library.

Three wheelbender racks.

Cyclists reject the grim concrete slots and use the fence instead. Twelve years later there's a cafe here: #72097
