[More recent image here: #186206.] [Image taken 14.9.22] Screwfix, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Positives: 1. There is cycle parking. 2. The cycle parking is covered. 3. The cycle parking is very close to the entrance to the shop so it's: a) easy to find; b) easy to take your items back to your cycle. 4. The racks are Sheffields. Negatives - all avoidable. 1. This is the only visible cycle parking on the site of three units. (See also: #186660, #186661.) 2. There are just three uprights. 3. These uprights are intended to be supports and the "immovable object" to secure your cycle to... a condition many insurance companies set for a cycle to be covered. However they are: a) too close together so they are difficult and uncomfortable to use if you have luggage, are buying items (this is what you are here for, surely), have mobility issues, have a wider cycle, want to lockshare... b) too close to the shelter sides - there's no room on the outside of the upright closest to the camera, for example. This means instead of the three uprights accommodating six (minimum) cycles there is only space for three rigs. And the green one is not secured/was blocking my exit. 4. There is no room for a trailer or longer rig: compare with this newer storage at B&Q (the same company that owns Screwfix): #184753. 5. There is a step up (a kerb) and therefore down which makes access difficult or perhaps impossible for some people. And, once again, you are here to buy stuff so you might be heavily laden... Second image, different problem here: #186175. Other images today: #186158, #186159, #186160.
