[Image taken 8.1.23] Wickes, Lysander Close, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] I persevere with campaigning for cycle parking including at retail outlets: getting it installed; getting it upgraded; getting it better spaced. Why? Because people like to cycle. But to do so they need cycle parking at their destination. And provision that is easy to find, easy to use... This family had come from Wigginton. They have a car. The father said they could have driven here today. He explained he drives 20 miles a day but the traffic makes the journeys unpleasant. (As the children were with him, I didn't point out, he is part of the traffic.) So he chooses to cycle at weekends/when he can. The son who had not enjoyed cycling now uses his bike to get to school - 20 miles/week. And hasn't missed a day since starting in September. Given the minus temperatures in December 2022 that is commendable. It was clear the boy now enjoys cycling. By contrast the daughter always liked using her bike. This family will motivate me to continue lobbying for practical cycle parking provision, safe routes, safe roads, etc, etc. Other image here today and links: #189177.
