[Image taken 4.4.21] Rougier Street, York. There is just 121cm between the racks and the scooter bays. This is the corridor (access to /from) between the racks and the scooters. It needs to accommodate someone wheeling a cycle if they can do so (see: #166751) or riding it if the person is unable to push. Image: #166715 shows that even a cycle with no mudguards typically extends 40cm backwards from a rack. That leaves less than a metre for someone to be able to move between the scooters and the racks. And this assumes there are no longer machines on the cycle racks, scooters parked outside the bays, and that the person is able-bodied with the shape of a tall man - ie wider above all the objects (handlebars of scooters and cycles). If the person has pushed their cycle in from the Tanner Row side, it could extend further forward, reducing the corridor even further - 60cm in the case of the previous example. These cycles require more space: post bike: #166688 - 190cm long; Babboe: #166718 - 236cm long.
