[Image taken 5.2.23] Davygate, York. Good practice: cycle parking in the city centre. With signage that helps you remember where you left your cycle. Further, there is practical information about securing your cycle on the other side of the sign. And a map on this side anyone can consult (if you can get to it). This utility-use/family-carrying ('York' cycle, as I call such designs) is secured to the sign for cycle parking. It is longer than usual rig. Far more space is needed in front of a rack than behind it. Not many cycle racks are spaced to accommodate such designs. The owner said he and his children come into town most weeks. He uses parking where he does not cause a problem for pedestrians. The York Cycle Campaign (, is asking members with larger cycles and/or who have mobility issues, about their cycle parking needs. An email from the Campaign dated 28.1.23 asked “Do you ride a cargo bike or adapted cycle? We're interested to know how you find parking it around the city? Are there places around York you really struggle, or is there somewhere that has got parking right? Either public or private parking.
We know spacing between racks can be an issue, but what styles of stands work really well, or don't work at all?
Please us know by reply to this email, and if you'd be interested in being part of an ongoing discussion please let us know. Don't forget to say what type of bike you've got, and if you've any photos even better.”
