[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 18.9.21] B&Q, Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The location people secure their cycles to out of necessity, are close to the trolleys (they use the trolley bay railings) and to the entrance to and exit from the out ... [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] B&Q, Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. In the absence of cycle parking (the long-standing/default situation here) customers used the trolley bay railings. But the flyparked cycles protrude into the bay and ... [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]

[UPDATE: See: #174349] [Image taken 9.6.21] North Street, York. The strut/support that was leant against the wall has gone. The gap in the racks remains. See original image: #165096. Other images today: #170003 and links

[Image taken 1.9.21.] York rail station, York. The First Class lounge. Is this still an appropriate use of space? The ticket office is now tiny. The ladies loos just round the corner has queues even though some people are wary of travelling ... [more]

[Image taken 1.9.21] York rail station. There used to be Sheffields for people visiting the ticket office (see: #165421). However, since spring 2021 it is now a Sainsbury's (see also: #172777). (The racks are now here: #169923). I believe t ... [more]

[Image taken 1.9.21] York rail station. Location of 'no cycles' sign in: #173700. See also: #173702.

[Image taken 5.7.21] York rail station, York. The racks [see: #169923 and links] are now not only not where they are needed - outside the ticket office - but they are also not usable in this location where they can be and are. Is this a com ... [more]

  • Icon 174347 Path behind speedway often very narrow due to overgrown plants/weeds. Too narrow for passing even when cut back.
  • Icon 174346 Improvements to surfacing here going up gravelly hill and down tarmac hill towards bridge over railway. Really nasty potholes and bumps.
  • Icon 174345 Clearer signage of pedestrian lane and cycle lane. Pedestrians get upset when I tell them they are in the cycle lane!!
  • Icon 174344 Dangerous corner from cycle path turning left by rhino as you can’t see what’s coming in other direction. Overgrown plants make this worse.
  • Icon 174304 No pavement
  • Icon 174303 Take some grass verge and widen the road to make it .
  • Icon 174302 Too many people just use this as a through way to get to other parts of Hanover. It’s a one-way street with cars either side, so reduced visibility when crossing, and people go up the road incredibly quickly. It’s also possible for people to cycle in the opposite direction, which is great, but often does not feel safe as there are no road markings to block that space out
  • Icon 174278 Road has been closed and the Covid closure rules required it be closed to all traffic including bikes. This will be in force until Feb 2022. After that we hope for a better approach.
  • Icon 174248 Remove the pop up lane that not used and make exiting driveways safer.
  • Icon 174246 A cycle/footpath from here to Mosshayne Lane, Westclyst (bridge over the M5) would provide an amazing, off road cycle route between Broadclyst, Westclyst and Pinhoe/Exeter city beyond.
  • Icon 174245 This shared cycle path between Westclyst and Broadclyst is totally unacceptable and dangerous, especially for young children with cars flying past on the B3181. Another option is needed that does not run alongside this road but connects up the amentities and schools of Broadclyst (Clyst Vale in particular), Westclyst and Pinhoe/Exeter beyond.
  • Icon 174244 The cycle path that has been promised as part of the Bloor homes, Westclyst development needs to be put in and link up to Langaton Lane for easy access to Pinhoe Station & the Pinhoe cycle path network into the City centre.
