[Image taken 12.1.23] York Theatre Royal, St Leonard’s Place, York. A 'York' cycle ie a design that is bespoke and/or adapted for carrying people and/or making utility trips. But it is locked only to itself - using the integral nurse's … [more]

[Image taken 11.1.23] Clifton Moor Retail Park - the area with Dunelm at one end and Tenpin at the other, Stirling Road, York. The bollards are too close to the racks. 140cm is insufficient space even for a standard cycle. When reversing … [more]

[Image taken 10.12.22] Tang Hall Lane junction with Lang Avenue, York. Rocks not racks. Why use defensive objects that are completely out of place and have no useful purpose? The rocks were not here in July 2019 according to street view … [more]

[Image taken 10.12.22] Co-op, 143-145 Tang Hall Lane, York. The racks need to be sufficiently far back from a vertical structure 'ahead'/ in front of the supports that you can roll your cycle in far enough for the uprights to support it. … [more]

[Image taken 13.11.22] Co-op, Campleshon Road, York. I’m in favour of community notice boards. But who is this Co-op one aimed at? If the wider community, are people going to find it? And look at the size of the text... Not large enough for … [more]

[Image taken 13.11.22] Co-op, Campleshon Road, York. The roundtopped Sheffield racks – I think flattopped Sheffields offer more support and more locking surface area – are not well positioned. One is in front of a louvre. Is this intended … [more]

[Image taken 13.11.22] Co-op, Campleshon Road, York. Sheffields to one side - not visible, not signposted, nowhere near - the new Co-op. Perhaps they support short-stay cycle delivery to the residents? But is this a residents entrance? If … [more]

[Image taken 13.11.22] Co-op, Campleshon Road, York. There are racks… up steps. (No drop kerb from the road to get to them.) Nowhere near the Co-op entrance. No signage to help people find them. There’s disabled car parking directly … [more]

Fahrradständer an den Bushaltestellen wären sinnvoll. Was man hier auch gut sieht, dass der Gehweg - trotz großer Straßenbreite bis 9 m - für alles mögliche missbraucht wird. Schilder, Lichtmasten, Mülltonnen... Da wird es mit Rollator oder … [more]

It's good to have secure cycle parking inside Barking Riverside station, but surely there needs to be some more casual parking outside? It doesn't much matter at the moment as no-one much actually lives here yet.

[Image taken 3.11.22] Blake Street, York. It looks as if the trike rider arrived after the cycle to the left had been parked. It looks as if the trike is trapping the blue cycle. If that person has mobility issues and can't lift the cycle … [more]

[Image taken 3.11.22] Blake Street, York. There's- seemingly - room for a trike between the upstands here. Compare the racks this side of the space with those on the other. All are Sheffields but these are not linked - the others are which … [more]
