106296Photo #106296Nice graphic but rubbish cycle parking just off Cherry Hinton Road. Difficult to secure the bike to the racks, and little support for the bike - risk of wheel bending. Putting them by the bins adds insult to injury! Very poor effort indeed from the developer / site maintenance.

They remind me of the shop racks at #11982.

106291Photo #106291Bikes and bins: Cycle parking in residential area.

It ought to be possible to make a much better job of this.

Basic "Sheffield Stands" like these are much better than the wheel benders of old, but bikes don't lean to them very well with the result of leaning over and looking untidy.
