[Image taken 26.2.21] Marygate carpark, York. Compost John (John Cossham) is a familiar sight around York. His rig is distinctive. The trailer plus cycle is nearly 4m long. Cycle networks need to be able to accommodate larger designs (longer and wider) that enable a variety of uses. Cargo cycles (bespoke or a rig like Compost John's) enable freight to be moved around the city sustainably. They permit people to practise their livelihoods, transporting equipment and tools. Wider and longer cycles carry dependants or other people who either pedalling themselves or are pedalled. When people move around on cycles that are different to the accepted design, this facilitates emulating and adaption: if that person with a limb missing can cycle, so could I. If that person can power a cycle using their arms not their legs, perhaps I could too. If that person can operate their decorating business using a cycle, perhaps I could ply my trade that way. When it comes to accommodating plus size cycles, planner need to be aware they not only need wider corridors but also larger turning circles. See also: #157644, #164540, #164541, #164542, #164543. Longer, wider 'York' cycles: #164845
