[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] This cycle-ped-wheelchair route is regularly yarn bombed. Other image (with explanatory poster) see: #174356. Other images nearby today see: #174351 and link ... [more]

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location. The cycle with the basket requires more space than this design of rack offers. The second cycle is, therefore, at an angle. Other images here today: #174351 a ... [more]

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The cycle with the rack and child seat leaves no space for a second machine on the other side of the rack. However, as is the case when space is factored in ... [more]

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location. These two cycles fit/dovetail onto this design of rack as they do not have panniers, baskets, child seats, etc. Other images of this subject today see: #1743 ... [more]

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location. Original image/caption see: #168287. I was clearly wrong. People have found these racks and recognised them as cycle parking. I am re-posting as the cycles ar ... [more]

[Image taken 22.8.21] Rowntree Park, between Butcher Terrace and the Millennium Bridge, York. A group of families meeting on the grassy area. One family arrived on this: a Circe tandem with a trailer (www.circecycles.com/). Definitely a 'Yo ... [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. 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]

[Newer image: #174351 and links] [Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Set of three racks offering six spaces for cycle parking. I am not convinced people will understand the purpose of these shap ... [more]

[Image taken 2.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. This is an example of good practice regarding siting and spacing (but see the captions in the links ruling out this design as practical): cycle parking right where you want it, easy to find and with ... [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 25.4.21] Rowntree Park, York. There is around 233cm of hard standing between the edge of the table tennis tables and the grass. This is comfortable when the tables are in use. And permits people to walk/cycle/scoot etc past the ... [more]

[Image taken 25.4.21] Rowntree Park, York. There are two table tennis tables in this park. There is 336cm between them. This is comfortable when both tables are in use. And permits people to walk/cycle/scoot etc between them when they are n ... [more]

[Image taken 25.4.21] Rowntree Park, York. Like: #167764 this is an example of best practice - there is cycle parking where you need it. Also seating. The racks are well used: #166699. (For more images of the table tennis, including measure ... [more]

[Image taken 28.3.21] Between 14.30 and 15.30, two residents counted people on Terry Avenue, York on a blustery but dry Sunday. The reason was to get a benchline ahead of the closure of the route for flood works at Clementhorpe (see also: # ... [more]
