[Image taken 22.9.22] Next to Bella Italia, Clifton Moor Gate, York. Other images here today: #186258, #186260. Approaching from off-road segregated cycle route alongside Clifton Moor Gate, the cycle parking is easy to find. It’s also easy to reach – it’s level access. The tarmac labelling makes it clear what it is and where it is. The provision and labelling predates Instagram, drones… I’ve always been curious as to the reason for it. But now I appreciate the fact there can be no confusion over what this structure is for (compare with: #182714). Perhaps the geographical information would help when reporting the theft of a cycle, for example. If the cover on the structure were wider, the child seat (or a trailer, etc) would be more likely to remain dry. If the Sheffield stands (the upright supports) were further forward, the entire rig would be further forward. But there also cycles that are long in front (see: #166718). So, it’s the roof that needs to be wider. The adult cycle has a single-prong stand but it seems also to be supported by the Sheffield rack, to which it is also secured. It is what I call a ‘York’ cycle – it has a basket and a rack in addition to the child-towing attachment. In short it is a cycle set up for utility and family use.
