The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

Sheffield stands are easy to use by all. Unfortunately disabled access is restricted by a gate to the left. Disabled users have to call a number to access the castle.

[Image taken 23.7.21] Londis, Haxby Road junction with White Cross Road, York. This person needs more space to park his rig than is available here: #172426. The Tier bays are located where someone with a longer or wider cycle could park. Th ... [more]

[Image taken 23.7.21] Londis, Haxby Road junction with White Cross Road, York. The rack on the right is loose. It doesn’t lift out but it does move back and forth. The shop owner said it was hit by a driver – a couple of years ago. Othe ... [more]

[Image taken 21.7.21] Monks Cross, Huntington, York. (Note: Streetview still shows images of the retail park before it was revamped in, I think, 2020.) Not sure of the significance of the 2m sticker between racks that at only 72cm wide are ... [more]

We’ve just moved to the area and My wife and I both need bike storage so we can use our bikes to get to work. I am sure there are many others who are on the waiting lists for bike storage nearby

Nasty new cycle stands on the main square of Stow-on-the-Wold

A few wheelbenders at the front of the Manor Hospital, Oxford

[Image taken 10.7.21] cineworld, Vangarde/Monks Cross, off New Lane/Kathryn Avenue, Huntington, York. [Note: There is no street view at this location.] Second time in as many weeks to this frontage to find people have either mistaken the ra ... [more]

[Image taken 8.7.21] Asda, Layerthorpe, York. The racks here are mostly too close together (see: #166683). Unless you ride something this size with no luggage. Other images today see: #171575 and links.

[Image taken 7.7.21] Station Road, York. This branch of Starbucks opened in the first week of July. There is no cycle parking provision. Other images today see: #171490 and links

No nearby hangers for bikes nearby

I would like a bike hangar, all of the available bike storage is taken - I have joined a waiting list

[Image taken 5.7.21] York rail station, York. The racks [see: #169923 and links] are now not only not where they are needed - outside the ticket office - but they are also not usable in this location where they can be and are. Is this a com ... [more]

The Angel Cycleway takes a left and joins the road here

Although there are already a number of hangars in the street and nearby, they are all full with long waiting lists. Clearly demand is outstripping supply. My daughter currently has to carry her bike every day to a first floor flat, past a n ... [more]

See previous application for Grove Hill Road, SE5 8DF

All nearest secure bike hangars are full with waiting lists. Lots of LTN locally would be reinforced if people could park bikes safely. Terraced houses make this difficult and it's a high crime area with lots of bike thefts. I suggest a sec ... [more]

[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]

Proper staff cycle parking needed at the rear of the Manor Hospital, Oxford

Believe it or not, this is active cycle parking and the bikes are not wrecks.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York junction with Rougier Street. So. Much. Clutter. And five cycle parking spaces remain blocked by the temporary signage - see #170372 and links. The colourful tubs are part of the Buzz About York project ... [more]

[Image taken 22.6.21] Aldi, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. Good points: the racks are Sheffields; no lifting is required to get a cycle in or out; there's no problem with manoeuvring backwards; they are under cover; they are close to the tr ... [more]

[Image taken 22.6.21] 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.) As previously noted (see: #170063) th ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park, York. Uncontrolled plant growth makes this Sheffield (cycle parking) rack unusable. Extended caption on this issue see: #170507. Other images today see: #170523 and links

Current cyclehoops secured hangars in the street are quite insufficient. Numerous residents have been waiting for years for spots.

[Image taken 18.6.21] Tanner Row, York. Clutter preventing use of and access to/from the cycle parking. This issue today see also: #170372 and links.

[Update 3.7.21]: The wheelchair sign has been removed – the route should not have been signed along here (see: #171340). The other sign has also been moved away from the cycle parking. [Image taken 18.6.21] Tanner Row, York. Diversion sig ... [more]

[Update see: #171340] [Image taken 18.6.21] Tanner Row, York. Diversion sign and cone blocking three cycle parking spaces - plus there's no drop kerb anywhere in that direction for someone with a wheelchair, buggy or to access the cycle par ... [more]

Sheffield stands clearly needed outside Webster's and other shops here to encourage cycling.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Vanbrugh College, University of York, near the radio station. This rack is stickered as for use by disabled users. However, it is just a sticker - no modification. For all users, the racks are too close to the wall, pl ... [more]

There's a lot of space here and it would accommodate local families, residents and workers.

Need for cycle parking outside the Pipasha restaurant on Ditton Walk.

More cycle parking needed at the Keswick Co-op

The cycle parking at the rear of the Keswick Museum doesn't seem to get much use.

[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 faciliti ... [more]

Very poor quality cycle parking at Asda in Trafford Park

Wheelbenders at Vindolanda

A lot of locals visit this churchyard and community garden but there is nowhere to park bikes.

Cycle parking needed at the Golden Ball, Boxworth

[Later image: #171405] [Image taken: 5.6.21] York rail station near the York Tap pub. Are these the Sheffields that were outside the previous booking office - and were invaluable? Cycle parking for pub visitors is a great idea. But not inst ... [more]

How does that work? Cycle parking without stands...

Residential cycle parking needs to be a bit more secure that just stands in the street. It could also be further away from the kerb to allow room for opening car doors.

Cycle parking hidden at the back of the car park.

[Image taken 29.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Three cycles including an adult-child combo. Reassuring on a warm Bank Holiday weekend Saturday that not everyone drives to/in York. The car park see: #169786 and links felt unsafe and uncontro ... [more]

More cycle parking needed at the SS Great Britain!

A few badly placed cycle stands

Bike Parking needed by Wygston's house

Secure cycle parking required at tower blocks in Charles Street. This location is very handy for cycling into the city centre, but better storage is required.

Still no cycle parking on the south side of Brandon station

No cycle parking at Stiffkey Saltmarshes

No cycle parking at Binham Priory (English Heritage)

Make it a loop hangar - a lot of bicycles in the area get vandalised

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Cycle attached to tree protector shows need for cycle racks here. There are Sheffields at the far side of the car park: #167031. But you’d have to know they were there and be able to get to t ... [more]

Awful cycle parking at the Holiday Inn, Histon - never mind the guests, do they want all the staff to come in by car?

For my bike parking

In the car parking area behind No's 32-42 Tranton Road there are always empty parking spaces. There is also plenty of space around off the street - please use that area for a few of the loop cycle hangars - i would happily rent 3 or 4 space ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. These are in the same location as the Sheffields in: #168843 but only one person is using these. I think this is due to the design. See more images of these racks from toda ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. These seem like a modern take on the old fashioned long discredited ‘wheelbenders’. The only contact with the rack is the wheel – could a heavy cycle fall and buckle ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. This cycle is not supported other than by the front wheel. I can't see any benefit of this design of rack over Sheffields (see: #168843). I feel this is reflected in the fa ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. Like the racks on the other side of the entrance these racks are too close (see: #167732). Other images of the racks on this side see also: #169112 and links.

[Image taken 10.5.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. The cycle parking on this side of the shop has no protection from vehicles parked/being parked this side. Longer cycles or a rig with a trailer could block the pedestrian access. See also ... [more]

I would like cycle parking here, so people from Hamilton could cycle into town.

Few houses on Littlewood have enough room to store bikes in front gardens securely, and none have side garden access. Secure storage on the street in hangars (at least 1 for 6 bikes to begin with) would be instantly popular and support acti ... [more]

Cycle parking could be added to assist students at school

A Santander parking would be great here to really allow people to cycle to work

[Image taken 5.5.21] This trike extends forward around 65cm from the front rack support. The space provided is not enough to provide protection or to accommodate longer cycles. In Chapter 8 of the London Cycling Design Standards (http://con ... [more]

[Image taken 5.5.21] These racks are too close to the carriageway. The pink mark shows how far into the road one of the cycles protrudes. Other image here today see: #168483 and links

[Image taken 4.5.21] Toft Green, York. City of York staff cycle parking. Secure by Design recommend smaller clumps of racks as they give oversight. But perhaps this site is sufficiently secure that is not a concern. However the aisle is too ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. The end rack is just 31cm from the planter surround. This is an opportunity missed. End Sheffields can be labelled see: #165049 and used by oversized machines see: #165049, #167039 and ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. Alignment of the onstreet cycle parking with the kerb. Any cycles secured to the racks would be vulnerable to vehicle movements as there is no protection from the road and little space ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. There's just 52cm between the extent of this back wheel and the carriageway. There is no protection for cycles using these racks from passing/overtaking or manoeuvring vehicles. Other i ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. There’s just 80cm between the extent of the cycle stand and the roadway. This limits the design of cycle that can use the racks. It makes cycles parked here vulnerable as there is no ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. There’s just 47cm between the extent of the cycle parking and the kerb. The minimum recommended in the TfL London Cycle Design Standards (8.4.4 Layout of stands http://content.tfl.gov ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. The wheels of cycles parked here are vulnerable as the racks as so close to the road and there is no protection from vehicles. The design of these racks could have incorporated the logo ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. These racks do not offer the support flat topped, longer, traditional Sheffields do. This cycle is overbalancing. Other images Hudson Quarter today: #169638 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Toft Green, York. How do you get to the racks if there are motor vehicles in the parking spaces? There is just 72cm this side of the tree and 94cm the other. Other images this cycle parking today: #169632 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Toft Green, York. How do you get to the racks behind the low wall if there are motor vehicles on the spaces to the left? Other images this cycle parking today: #169632 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York. The problems (lack or only difficult access to/from the Sheffields) could have been prevented or mitigated by the aisle between the racks and the Tier scooter/cycle parking bays confirming to best prac ... [more]

Long, straight, wide road with plenty of room and non-permitted parking for cars. Lots of families and bike users

I've recently sold my car and so theoretically there's now space outside my property (54a Heber Road) for a bike shed to hold up to 6 bikes. Most of the houses on my street have no garden access, shared entrances and narrow hallways. The wa ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. When a cycle is unsupported (see: #10741) or unequally weighted (see: #167791, though these racks are on a slope which is also a problem) or the rack is too close to an object (see: #165596), it can ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. The pedal of the cycle on the right protrudes into the space for use by the second cycle. The owner of the second cycle cannot use the rack. See also: #168292 and #168293. All images of these racks ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. The cycle on the left is not supported by the rack and any lock may not be long enough to reach the stand to secure the cycle. See also: #168291 and #168293. All images of these racks from today see ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. The cycle on this side cannot be fitted into the rack due to the pedal of the neighbouring cycle. It therefore protrudes far beyond the other cycles and possibly, in a different setting, outside the ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. Set of three racks offering six spaces for cycle parking. I am not convinced people will understand the purpose of these shapes unless there are at least two cycles already in them. They could be ta ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Wellington Row, Lendal Bridge (Perky Peacock side), York. This is one of the supports missing from the toastrack Sheffield racks here: #168258.

[Image taken 2.5.21] Wellington Row, Lendal Bridge (Perky Peacock cafe side), York. This toastrack (supports linked by ground level rails) of Sheffields (cycle parking design) has lost its two outermost supports. Each support is designed to ... [more]

Overloaded cycle stand near the excellent Toppings Bookshop, Ely - more needed

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffields (cycle parking design) are near the main entrance. Tick. They are easy to find. Tick. They are in corridor busy with human traffic. Tick. They have a lot of natural ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffields are just 62cm from a wall. This limits who can use them. Unless a cycle has a stand and does not need support, you need to be able to wheel the cycle in sufficientl ... [more]
