170085Photo #170085[Image taken 12.6.21] Marygate car park, York. A very large vehicle parked here today. People of all ages and levels of fitness and infirmity get out of their vehicles here and change modes to reach their destination, and reverse this on the return. Some people cut through the car park because it's shorter but also because the cobbles on the edge below St Mary's are painful. You can't see round, through or over a vehicle of this size. It's blocking the view of the only entrance/exit on this side of the car park with the cycle-ped-wheelchair path linking Bootham and Scarborough Bridge/the rail station. And the space for manoeuvring in/out is extremely limited in this car park: more hazards for people on cycles, foot, in mobility scooters, pushchairs, wheelchairs and on the Tier hire scooters and cycles...

170071Photo #170071[Image taken 11.6.21] York Stadium Leisure Complex next to the LNER Community Stadium, Kathryn Avenue, Huntington, York. (The streetview dates from some years ago and shows the previous leisure centre.) There is too little seating here. Incredibly for a brand new facility there are just two places to sit. Both times we had to share with smokers. The seating such as there is does enable people in wheelchairs to sit sociably next to people who are not. This is not always the case - think pub-style fixed seating/tables. (There are some designs with a gap at one end for people in wheelchairs.) There was a constant stream of predominantly two sorts of groups while I was there. There were parents with very young children - the new leisure complex has pool areas for youngsters. There were people with grey hair. I am incredulous that the people who design these spaces do not have direct experience of or have seen that families use outdoor seating spaces for a variety of reasons. Eating a snack after exercise. Looking at the books borrowed from the library. 'Stowing' of kit used or books borrowed. 'Adjusting' or 'readying' of clothing (sun hats today, rain gear at other times, gloves in winter). Retired people may not have to be anywhere so some here today (covid testing, for other health services, a swim) might, have got a drink from the coffee machine (the cafe is not yet open) and enjoyed the good weather. As it was with the two areas of seating in use there was no option for dwelling and relaxing. There is space for more seating. Plus, it seems to me, seating can fulfil the function of the bollards - but be dual purpose and give a rather more welcoming feeling. Benches could also be installed alongside the green mounds in the background. Behind the photographer, there is a large planter. This could have been designed like the one (not shown) 50m beyond those green hillocks. It is a raised bed with the edges at the height and depth to be used as seating.

170063Photo #170063[Image taken 11.6.21] York Stadium Leisure Complex next to the LNER Community Stadium, Kathryn Avenue, Huntington, York. (The streetview dates from some years ago and shows the old swimming centre.) The brand new leisure and health facilities are a few metres behind where I stood to take this image. There is cycle parking. But you need to know it is there. (It's behind and beyond the cars to the left.) The motor vehicles are closer to the health/leisure facilities than the cycle parking. What message does this give? Also, there seems not to be a designated motor cycle parking area. When there is no allocated spaces for motor cycles the riders use the cycle parking. This is not okay. It introduces loud, large machines into quiet human spaces. Plus, as today, the motor cyclists often warm up their engines or at least let them run while readying themselves. People who cycle should not be subjected to additional air or noise pollution when parking/collecting their cycles and readying themselves (and any dependants) to go.

170042Photo #170042[Image taken 10.6.21] North Street, York junction with Bridge Street and Micklegate. It's part of route NCN65, it's got 'early greens' for cyclists on this side of the junction and on the opposite side - Skeldergate. It passes the rail station, it goes alongside the river, there are two attractive church buildings, it's around 100m from the pedestrianised shopping area. But it's basically a service road with lots of entrances to/exits from car parking - in a car park, in a multi-storey. Yet there's a real chance a further hotel could be built here. No matter it claims to offer no car parking spaces to guests there will be deliveries, taxis/Ubers picking up/dropping off and perhaps some spaces for staff to park. More journeys in motor vehicles of any kind would make this important link for people on cycles (of all ages and levels of experience) even less attractive. The surface is damaged for most of the length too. This was the worst I've seen the advisory cycle lane blocked. (Two vehicles is 'normal'.) Drivers heading in the direction of the black car in shot move into the oncoming lane to pass vehicles parked on the left (car club, police vehicles...) Most do not slow down if there is someone on a cycle coming towards them or wait till it is safe to pass. Other issues here: not enough cycle parking and what there is. is too close to the road see: #168483 and links.
