[Image taken 25.1.22] Rail station, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] This cycle caught my eye as I pedalled passed. It was still on the top layer of the two-storey storage racks (see: #170490) but… the person approaching it ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. This mobility scooter tucks neatly into a Sheffield rack. The user has to be able to get in and out and may not be able to push it in further. Or perhaps the link rails (also an issue for cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.22] Deangate, York. [NOTE: The location is approximate.] The buggy seems to be parked independently of the cycle. They are not sharing a lock. There does not seem to be an attachment on either. I conclude they are not rela ... [more]

[Image taken 25.5.22] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. Note how close the trolley parking is: easy to access even with bulky difficult-to-carry cycle luggage, and easy to return the cart without leaving your shopping unattended (compare w ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The minimum recommended gap between uprights is 100cm. This is a shopping area and also has family groups who would share locks and therefore a ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The otherwise excellent cycle parking provision needs labelling as cycle parking to dissuade people from returning trolleys here. Other images here today and links: #182710.

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. No problem with spacing in front (ahead of) the uprights. Compare with: #180534, #177528… Other images here today and links: #182710.

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. When I first saw the roof I was concerned about the headheight. But the person standing next to his cycle is 6ft. He said he thought it was fine. Other images here today and links: #1 ... [more]
