[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 19.6.21] York rail station. Instructions on using the racks. The racks cannot be used by everyone due to the need to lift a cycle or because the designs exclude some bespoke, adapted or 'luggaged' machines. However, there is go ... [more]

[Image taken 19.6.21] York rail station. Doubleheight racks with pre-formed grooves/slots. Wider wheels, cycles with front racks, front luggage, trikes don't fit into them. The racks are divided into sections by letters. This is good practi ... [more]

[Image taken 19.6.21] York rail station. Doubleheight/Twotier racks accommodate more cycles. But they exclude a lot of designs - eg: #171840, and could damage others see: #171378, plus not everyone can operate them. More images of the racks ... [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] Toft Green, York. City of York Council fleet of cycles staff can use. They are distinctive, upright, open framed and the panniers look capacious. They look like ‘York’ cycles – wider than the no luggage, no enhanc ... [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 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 10.5.21] York St John University, York. Sheffields (cycle racks) on De Grey Street. Easy to access for most people and for most designs of cycle. Compare with: #168844. See also: #168845, #168846

[Image taken 4.5.21] Hudson Quarter (between Toft Green, Station Road and Station Rise) York. I assume these are cycle racks. Is the design intended to be the logo of the development? Are they based on this idea: #168498, #168499?

[Image taken 5.5.21] This trike has a mirror mounted on the right-hand handlebar. It protrudes around 8cm further than the bars. Other image here today see: #168483 and links

[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 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 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. 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 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. These two cycles fit but they are unadapted and unadorned. There are no child seats, panniers, baskets... They are not the norm for a park (see: #168295) or York (see: #165594). You cannot 'roll in' ... [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] On the park side of the Reading Cafe, Rowntree Park, York. Well-spaced Sheffields (cycle racks). They are 117cm apart so will accommodate family groups and wider cycles. They are also where you need them - at the parksi ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. Un 'upstand' (see: #167919) is never good. At 1cm, this one is comparatively small. Another issue here is the bollard. It is 78cm from the nearest upright (you need more space than ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This bollard obstructs access to/from the cycle racks. Is it intended to serve a useful purpose? Or is it simply clutter? See also: #167924. For other images of these racks taken to ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This cycle extends beyond the cycle rack by around 52cm. Some cycles will require much more space. Just as cycles need space in front see: #167920. So you need unobstructed space be ... [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 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffield (design) racks are 'toastracks'. They come as a unit (with myriad permutations). Sheffields are intended for people to use both sides f the uprights. These are diffe ... [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] 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. 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] Lidl, James Street, York. Good access to the cycle parking from the car park (access route). The racks are not blocked by car parking spaces unlike at Aldi, Clifton Moor. The racks are flat-topped Sheffields, 70cm long. ... [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 6.4.21] The Manager at Asda, Layerthorpe, York has responded quickly to my request for improved spacing between racks. He has already removed one Sheffield between two others. There is now 115cm between the racks. I could acces ... [more]

[Image taken 28.3.21] Rowntree Park, York. Adult cycle with child seat, plus child bike sharing one lock. Families share locks and therefore need space to be able to put their cycles together. 100cm spacing between the Sheffields enables th ... [more]

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]

[Image taken 20.3.21] Tanner Row, York. The Tier scooter parking is too close to the Sheffields. (For all related issues and images see: #164846.) This cyclist started to try to take his bike out backwards but would have had to lift it. So ... [more]
