[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. Good practice. Many people park their cycles at the station for differing lengths of time. This sign is where people on cycles can see it, it's bright red so very visible and the image shows immediat ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Near Grimston House, Vanbrugh Way, University of York, York. Good practice: using green tarmac to link sections of a through campus cycle route over a road. I think this would be very helpful at Bootham Terrace/Longfie ... [more]

[Image taken 29.5.21] Hudson Quarter, Toft Green, York. Residents' cycle parking. I couldn't see cycle parking options that didn't involve lifting a cycle or slotting it into a rack. I hope the person who showed me the racks will put me int ... [more]

[Image taken 21.5.21] Stirling Road, York. Last of four 'Retail Parks' signs installed this year. Aimed at people on cycles or on foot, in fact this one and its companion on the other side of the road (see: #169129) alert all road users to ... [more]

[Image taken 19.5.21] Layerthorpe, York. City of York Council has replaced the slotted grating in the carriageway with a grille. I believe this is the safe pattern for carriageway drainage. The previous design was a hazard for people on cyc ... [more]

[Update: #169455] [Image taken 18.5.21] Stirling Road, York. One of three signs installed this year (with one more to come) alerting people to the retail outlets of Clifton Moor off Stirling Road and the cycle routes to/from and between the ... [more]

[Image taken 26.4.20] Rowntree Park, York. The Sheffields (cycle rack design) have space in front and behind. They are therefore easy to get into and out of - roll in, roll onwards - important if you have mobility issues, a health condition ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. This is an example of good practice: cycle parking right where you want it, easy to find and with excellent surveillance. There is space around such that you don't need to lift a cycle or do multipl ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Reading Cafe, Rowntree Park, York. Well-spaced racks with good surveillance that are easy to find. Other image here today: #168192 and links.

[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 6.3.21] Public toilets, St George's Field Car Park, York. Tier electric hire scooter and cycle parking bays. Plus Sheffields. Good practice providing Sheffields at toilets and within reach of riverside walks - you can switch mo ... [more]

[Image taken 6.3.21] Ron Cooke Hub, University of York. This Sheffield rack has not been moved to accommodate cycles that are longer in front. However, it has been designated an 'oversized' cycle parking space with a bespoke sticker and gra ... [more]
