[Image taken 25.8.21] Entrance/exit Bootham Stray, Alder Way, New Earswick, York. York is flat and its city centre is accessible to many people with mobility issues. It was named one of the best cities in Britain to live: Access to green spaces is a criteria for that accolade. But this city has a dirty secret. It might also qualify as the obstructions capital of the UK. Access to motor traffic-free routes and green spaces, such as the Strays, is impossible for many people and for others only doable with a radar key and an able-bodied companion. This is Andy (see: #173446 and links) at the kissing gate next to a radar key-operated gate at the New Earswick end of Bootham Stray. He doesn't have his radar key with him so he can't get to the all-weather surface, green route to York/the Foss Islands Way through here. Today ,though, Andy is not riding alone: #173448. Other images today: #173445 and links. Extended caption about access here: #172505 and links. Other images this gate: #175391, #175485 and links
