[Image taken 22.9.22] Next to Bella Italia, Clifton Moor Gate, York. A rainy evening and I saw the covered cycle parking had a longer rig projecting from it. It was a Tagalong-style cycle trailer: a child size wheel ‘half’ cycle that attaches to the adult’s machine. The child pedals and contributes to the forward motion of the combined rig. The child gets exercise and keeps warm, the adult gets some assistance. The adult knows where the child is at all times. Some attachments can be unstable, though – they can lean quite disconcertingly far over – at least it looks this way it you are watching. A wet saddle, wet and therefore cold hands put people off cycling. And if a child is unenthusiastic the adult might decide that they make the journey by car instead. The roof is a positive as is the fact there is level access, lots of room to get even a longer unwieldy cycle in and out. Further, there is room for pedestrians and other users of the space to not be at risk, easy overview of the movements of other people for the cycle parking users, and the area is motor vehicle-free. This protects the cycles and the users from possibly damage or injury. If there are vehicles bollards can provide protection for the cyclists and their cycles: #184753.
