Photo listing : cycle parking (problem)

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

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

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]

[Image taken 26.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. This cycle is occupying more space than those shown in illustrations for cycle parking. Perhaps due to the bag on the handlebars. Perhaps due to the quite steep slope here. Another reason for ... [more]

[Image taken 26.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. This cycle is parked on its stand. It doesn't need support from the Sheffield stand (rack). It does need to be secured. The owner uses a heavy chain. The owner is female and needs to be able t ... [more]

Bizarre cycle parking at the National Trust's Sutton Hoo property - it's only a couple of miles from the nearest station, why would they assume that all cyclists have lightweight road bikes?

Plenty of space for some cycle parking in central Southwold.

Cycle parking that you have to lift your bike on to. Genius.

[Image taken 23.4.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. There are many good practice elements about the design and position of these racks. But at 74cm they are too close to each other. Further images of these racks taken today see: #167727 an ... [more]

A damaged cycle parking stand on St Vincent Crescent. The bollards are facing the wrong way, exhibiting a white reflector on the left side of the road and red on the right side of the road. A sacrificial bollard on this side of the cycle pa ... [more]

Damaged cycle parking stands on Jamaica Street. The "except buses, taxis & cycles" sign on the traffic signal is obscured by a sticker.

The end of Miller Street looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Argyle Street forms part of the Core Path Network, and as such cycling is supposed to be permitted. However, the signs for the precinct do not says this. One of ... [more]

There's nowhere to park the bike next to New Cross Station. I suggest a parking rack at its entrance.

bakfiets at Waitrose, Welwyn Garden City - there's no space in the normal cycle parking area

Limited cycle parking at Waitrose in Welwyn Garden City, and rather hidden away.

[Image taken 17.4.21] Rougier Street junction with Tanner Row, York. Once in, you have to get out again. (See: #165819 and #165820.) In the interim, what had been empty spaces could have filled up. And the shape or dimensions of the new or ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Rougier Street junction with Tanner Row, York. Note the cycle is nearly jackknifing and that the person is struggling to keep it upright. Had she had more weight onboard - shopping, child seat, a child, the cycle might ... [more]

wheeled in - there is an insufficient turning circle to bring the rear wheel in. The cycle will have to be lifted or dragged. Even if possible, for some people - including this resident - such manoeuvring is painful and can have consequence ... [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]

There is a park here but no bike parking at all

[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 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. Two issues. Problem 1. The cycle parking is nowhere near the trolleys or the supermarket entrance/exit - see: #167030. Problem 2. The cycle parking is on a slope. I need both hands to load my c ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. The racks are on a perceptible slope. My cycle slips and won't stay upright. (See also: #166690) For a further consequence of the slope see: #166691. For generic observations about the cycle pa ... [more]

[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] 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]

Wide pavement outside two food shops (opening soon)

[Image taken 4.4.21] Tower Gardens, Tower Street, York. This is a Babboe. It is around 236cm long and around 85cm wide. There is space at this location for wider and longer machines. I'd like to see something like the initiative at the Univ ... [more]

[Image taken 4.4.21] Rougier Street, York. The paved area narrows from one end of the racks to the other. The gap between the rack and the road is 104cm at its narrowest point and 125cm at the widest. See: #166755 and: #166756

[Image taken 4.4.21] Rougier Street, York. There is just 121cm between the racks and the scooter bays. This is the corridor (access to /from) between the racks and the scooters. It needs to accommodate someone wheeling a cycle if they can d ... [more]

There are lots of spare car parking space and lots of people want a bike hangar, there is only one nearby and it's full

There are cycle hoops but all have +2 year waiting lists. more hangars are needed.

[Image taken 26.3.21] Marygate car park, York. For the second consecutive day, the cycle parking is blocked by machinery in action. Concrete mixing? And even from a few feet away the smell of petrol fumes was strong. The team working here s ... [more]

Since the LTN scheme came into play, this road has been blocked off. As such there is ample space to install bike shelters

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]

I agree with the first comment - we have many cyclists who live in our street, and no storage.

[Image taken 19.3.21] Marygate car park, York on a chilly overcast, Friday afternoon in lockdown. Lots of car parking spaces but the building materials have been sited where they block the cycle parking. See also: #165767, #165768, #165770, ... [more]

Update 29.3.21 See image #166423 Update 26.3.21 The area next to the racks is now being used for what looks like making cement. See: #166267, #166268. On 23.3.21 the racks were still blocked. I spoke to one of the workers - and his boss o ... [more]

Bike hangar for use by significant number of cycle commuters

New two-tier cycle parking at King's College - anything rather than reducing the space for car storage?

Lots of people in our flats have bikes & the flats have no suitable storage space for them. An outside hangar is really needed!

Five tightly spaced cycle parking stands, unsigned and hidden behind the trolley stack, at Aldi, just off Great Western Road.
