164667Photo #164667Trumpington Park 'n' Ride site.

Two columns each of 16 toastracks plus 8 toastracks in between the two columns. Each toastrack can accommodate 8 cycles.

That's a total of (16 + 16 + 8) * 8 = 320 cycle parking places.

These fit into 28 car parking spaces.

So that is 320 / 28 = 11.4 cycle spaces per car space.

The racks a quite well fixed down with several bolts on each rail. It's a shame to see them not being used but then again the car parking is pretty empty too.

163422Photo #163422A shopper is forced to walk the narrow gap between this van and a high hedge.

This is the main link for pedestrians between the Retail Park and the Beehive Centre. It is also a shared use cycle route leading to the toucan crossing.

Just before I took this there was another van parked immediately in front and it looks to me like they were queueing for the food van just out of shot on the left.

I didn't dare try talking to the drivers, and I even felt sheepish getting a photo. It's a horrible area.

I think the only way of stopping this is adding some form of physical barrier to prevent the footway being driven onto.

Official report
www.cyclestreets.net/collisions/reports/2019350835810/

Fenland Citizen
www.fenlandcitizen.co.uk/news/driver-who-killed-much-loved-cyclist-on-fenland-road-sentenced-9155169/

A driver who killed a cyclist after failing to see him when turning out of a junction has been sentenced.

Bradley Schofield, of Foul Anchor, Tydd, Wisbech, was driving his Vauxhall Astra in Fitton End Road on 23 April, 2019.

The 20-year-old turned at the junction to join Roman Bank, Leverington, at just before 6.30pm but struck 68-year-old Paul Sims as he did so.

Mr Sims, from Wisbech St Mary, was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries but died three weeks later (May 14) from his injuries.

A forensic collision investigation report concluded Schofield had failed to see Mr Sims and his friend as they cycled and as he turned directly into their path.

The report noted that Schofield should have been able to see them and the exact reason why he failed to do so was unclear, but he did not take extra care when pulling out of the junction.

In police interview, Schofield said he didn’t see the cyclists as he turned and claimed there must have been a blind spot created by the pillar of the car.

Schofield was later served with a postal requisition charging him with causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving.

PC Rochelle Eves, who investigated, said: “It’s incredibly sad when we have to attend incidents where drivers have made a mistake resulting in tragedy.

“I would urge people to ensure they pay careful attention when driving, and be particularly aware of vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians.

“We attend these kinds of incidents far too often and many are completely avoidable.”

The cone has appeared since I was here yesterday so I presume it has been registered by the relevant authority.

161255Photo #161255Voi ebike and escooters on Parker’s Piece.

I took the ebike here out for an 18 minutes ride which cost £3.70. It is electric assist and although the bike feels a little heavy it was easy and fun to ride. There were two problems: the front brake angle was set way too high, and third gear slipped annoyingly (this feedback was provided to them).

Despite that it was a fun cycle ride up Castle Hill and back down and around town.
