[Image taken 1.12.22] Rail station, York. I wondered how long it would take for a cargo cycle to appear at this end of the station. Though there is no dedicated space or even suitable space as there is nowhere to secure a cycle to. The thing that is holding back an explosion in cargo cycles in this city is, I believe, the barriers in the northern side (Clifton, etc). If you arrive at the station via the motor traffic-free Scarborough bridge over the Ouse or riverside route along it you would not want to exit on to the heavily trafficked Queen Street that passes the station, cut back in through the car park, to reach the cycle parking at the other end. If you have a cycle this size likely with children inside how heavy is it to push even if you can walk. But there are people who use larger designs of cycle who have mobility limitations and cannot push a cycle. Plus you are walking along a platform. Even when the space in front of the station is reworked (see: exiting the station, riding parallel to it and cutting back in will take time. A lot of time as you will need to wait for several sets of lights. Positive points: the racks and their contents are protected by the bollards from vehicle movements. The racks are lit. (Though I'm not sure how effective that light is to try to see a combination lock or get a key into a lock especially for people using the lower racks.) The 'lettering' of the rack to help people remember where they put their cycle. Other images here today: #188356, #188357. Other images today: #188358, #188359, #188360, #188361.
