It's disappointing a solicitor's (www.warekay.co.uk/) so close to the centre of a city where many people cycle only has 'wheelbenders'. The location is good - easy to find - but this design offers no support and no way of locking the frame as well as the wheels to an immovable object. Some insurance companies will not cover cycles not secured to an immovable object. Compare it with the client car parking: #183408 and cycle parking for staff: #183409, #183410, #183411.

183406Photo #183406[UPDATE: #183630.] [Image taken 8.6.22] Coppergate, York. An example of good practice. Context: #180533. The corridor between the wands and the pavement on the left-hand side of this image was interpreted as an extension of the pavement by some pedestrians and a cyclist I saw. Adding a cycle symbol after the lit crossing (where I was standing to take the image) I hope makes it clear(er) who can use this space. Other image here today: #183405 and links.Road environment:

183404Photo #183404[Image taken 8.6.22] Way of the Roses - 658, Duncombe Place, York. Events signage often obstructs pavements or cycle routes. If an organisation/authority wants to put up notices alerting people to forthcoming events, using existing street furniture to do so is surely the way to go about it. This is therefore is an example of good practice. Aboards obstruct pavements (see: #183617). When they fall they obstruct roads. Plus, people spill out into roads to avoid them. They are also clutter and unsightly: #183618. And hazardous: #183629. Other images today: #183405, #183406, #183407, #183408, #183409, #183410, #183411.Road environment:

183403Photo #183403[No change a month on: #183854.] [Image taken 7.6.22] Lidl, James Street, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The cycle parking at this Lidl is undercover and access is unobstructed see: #174000. But this person told me she doesn’t use it in her mobility scooter because she blocks access for people on cycles. So she uses this disabled parking bay if it’s free. But it’s not sheltered so in bad weather the padding on her seat gets wet while she is shopping. Worse is – for any user of this space – the trolleys of merchandise block the access to/from the shop entrance. The bollards should filter movements. ‘People’, eg those with a disability using the dedicated parking spaces, should be able to pass between the bollards, but not motor vehicles. By blocking access to everyone the shortest and safest route is not possible. The convenience of the disabled parking space (and the point of providing them and people using them) is lost. Any user has to walk in the car park either around the trolleys or around any user in the bay to the left. Other images today and links: #183399.Enforcement:

[NOTE: No street view at this location.] The trees now rake the heads of pedestrians and people cycling/scooting.

183348Photo #183348[Image taken 6.3.20] Illustrative image of space provided on Azumas (LNER) for cycles. The nearest one does not fit inside the cage. The door cannot be shut and locked. See also: #174286, #173797. For explanatory caption about taking cycles on trains (TPE) see: #173854.
[NOTE: This caption was written 7.6.22 based on an interview on 6.6.22]
Two parents, late 40s, one of whom has epilepsy, so is not permitted to drive. Two children, both pre-GCSE teens. One Disabled railcard. One Family and Friends railcard. Both plastic not electronic.
Pre-children the parents used to take their cycles on long-distance trains for one or two holidays a year but also day trips.
When the kids came and got old enough to cycle independently the breaks restarted. Until the arrival of Azumas in 2019. These do not have a guard’s van. There is a 4-cycle limit and you must hang your cycle on a hook in a cage with very limited space to move.
The problem of train travel now is the: “stress of boarding” – being able to get onto the train in time, and “bike hanging”.
The mother says: “I can’t physically lift my bike. I have to rely on someone else to do it. It is a real equality issue.” Then there’s the reversing process at the destination (or repeating it if there are changes along the route). “On shorter journeys, I also worry about potentially blocking other cyclists from being able to take their bikes.”
The family no longer makes day trips as “the hassle is too much” and “it requires too much mental energy”. They’d use the train to make day trips and go on holiday more if travelling with cycles wasn’t “so flipping annoying and stressful”.
“We did a [cycling] holiday in the Netherlands in 2019. By far the most stressful part of the holiday was getting all the cycles on the train in the UK. [The route between York and the port – Hull - is operated by Northern. It has a two-cycle limit but enforcement is down to the train staff. Cycle carriage is free but it’s not possible to reserve spaces on Northern trains.] This was much more stressful than the ferry, though we had never travelled on a ferry as a family before.”
The family is returning to the Netherlands for a holiday in 2022, again taking their cycles. This time they are taking the ferry from Newcastle. This means they have to take an LNER Azuma. They were able to book all four bikes on the same train from York to Newcastle but could not find a service with space for four cycles for the return journey. This was despite attempting to book on the day the tickets were released. As a result they are having to split the group. This meant “deliberation about who travels in which group”. They will all have to go to Newcastle station in time for the first service. The mother and one child will travel on this and the father can load both cycles. The mother will have to rely on someone unloading both bikes for her at the other end. There’s another problem: the railcards. If you have physical rail cards and need to split the group you can’t use the same railcard. You can’t even book the journeys together. The family booked one adult and one child on one service using the Disabled rail card. They booked the other two family members using the Family and Friends rail card.
What would work for them? “Wheeling cycles onto trains on a ramp like that for wheelchair users” and “attaching cycles to a Sheffield stand” and being able to leave them and "more spaces for cycles on trains".
Summing up the problems:
- there are “not enough spaces on trains for even a family of four to be able to travel together reliably;
- the hangers [cycle hooks] which are physically difficult for many people;
- help is not a “failsafe”. “I’ve heard of people in wheelchairs who have been forgotten so a woman with a bike won’t be high priority.”
Where does the mother think the problem lies: “There was no consultation with users and now no recognition of the problem or willingness to take action to solve it.”
