[Image taken 17.4.21] Tower Gardens, York. These Sheffields are 115cm apart. This means there's: a) room for a family sharing a lock/locks (left), b), space on the opposite Sheffield for another cycle, and, c) critically, clearance for some ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Tower Gardens, York. The Sheffields (racks) are 115cm apart. This is good practice as in enables family groups to share racks and locks - see also: #166368. But also people who are wider at the 'clutter point' (at hand ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Tower Gardens, York. Showing how much a trailer protrudes in relation to other cycles. This illustrates the importance of permitting space behind (in front see: #167037) to enable all designs of cycles to use racks and ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Cargo/delivery cycle at Rougier Street/Tanner Row, York. The rider can only exit backwards. But it's into an advisory contraflow cycle lane. And there's no drop kerb. Visibility is poor and there's a risk of damaging t ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Cargo/delivery cycle at Rougier Street/Tanner Row, York. The driver cannot exit forwards due to the handlebars of the cycle on the rack. The racks are 100cm apart. Too close to be practical/flexible. See #167037 for we ... [more]

[Image taken 14.4.21] Asda, Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The bollards are presumably intended to protect the Sheffields (racks) from motor vehicles accessing the space where I was standing to take this image. However, the ones at each e ... [more]

[Image taken 9.4.21] Rougier Street, York. The black box on the right has been installed too close to the Sheffields. 25cm is insufficient for a cycle to be positioned such that it is supported. For comparative dimensions see (unadapted cy ... [more]

[Image taken 9.4.21] Marygate car park York. Sheffields partially blocked. Work seems to have stopped for the timebeing but the barriers remain. There's still no shortage of other space in the car park for siting the materials store. You ca ... [more]

Disused wheelbenders - there's now secure single and two-tier parking inside the fence.

Many combination locks (which should really be called permutation locks) have a weak point where the inner shaft joins because the metal itself is very weak.

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. On a slope or if racks are too close to an object, cycles can't stay upright and topple. This makes loading/unloading difficult. Here it means the cycle takes up more space between Sheffields t ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. The large amount of space between the racks and the car parking means people can park longer cycles here. This cycle, for example, is 190cm long. At the widest point - the handlebars - it is ar ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Asda, Layerthorpe, York. One Sheffield has been removed as a trial. There is now 115cm between the racks where the space between the remaining Sheffields is around 57cm. I think this is the reason two of the three cycle ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] There are banks of Sheffields in Rowntree Park, York and close to the entrances. They are well used. These are close to the table tennis, the smaller of the two play areas, and the toilets (the brick building in the bac ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] Rougier Street, York. Three scooters are squeezed longwise into the bays further reducing the space for accessing the Sheffield racks and getting a cycle into/out of them this side. You can see how they block access to ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] Outside York Explore, Museum Street, York. The spacing in front of the racks is 69cm. 70cm is the minimum recommended (LTN 1/20). This would be inadequate for some machines eg: #166521 Compare the space here with that i ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] Outside York Explore, Museum Street, York. This is my cycle. It has front and rear panniers (bike bags). The front ones remain on it because they carry my locks. They make my cycle 72cm wide as a minimum. (There is spac ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] Outside York Explore, Museum Street, York. An example of an as ‘unadorned’, unadapted cycle as you get. And rare in York. But it still takes up 170cm: 60cm in front of the rack and 40cm behind. (The rack – of the ... [more]

[Image taken 28.3.21] Rowntree Park, York. The two adult cycles have a lock around them. The two child cycles are not locked. Families need space to be able to put their cycles together. I believe 120cm should be the standard space between ... [more]

A rare Barnet Cycle Hangar

[Image taken: 26.3.21] Pond Garth, Palmer Street on the Hungate development, York. A family's cycles stored on a balcony. There is extensive cycle parking under the buildings. Is it simply too time-consuming to have to access the garages an ... [more]

Cambridge Assessment cycle parking during lockdown.

Presumably cycle parking at this new accommodation block for Clare College is through the gate for car access, which seems rather clunky.

Just two visible stands at this new accommodation block for Clare College - other cycle parking must be through the gate for car access.

There are no areas to park your bikes securely along most of these roads and not a lot of people have space to keep bikes indoors. Would be good to have more bike parking solutions.

Update - see: #166683. [Image taken 24.3.21] The cycle parking at Asda, Layerthorpe, York is close to the entrance and the trolleys. (It is therefore an example of good practice - see overview of these issues: #167030). The racks are very e ... [more]

Update - see: #166683. [Image taken 24.3.21] Asda, Layerthorpe, York has cycle parking. But the racks are too close together. On 24.3.21 I decided I would speak to someone about it. The Store Manager immediately came out to speak to me. At ... [more]
