Bikes on the footway.

Bikes on the footway.

These racks are very heavily used and in their desperate need to park securely the bikes are being moved so that more bikes can be attached. The result looks very untidy and is not a great advertisement for more racks, which is what is real ... [more]

Shame on the Addenbrooke's site - instead of providing plenty of cycle parking at the new developments here, visitors are having to find places like this to leave their bikes. This is some distance from the main buildings, and provides none ... [more]

Cycle racks at Addenbrooke's crammed full as usual.

One of many very poorly secured racks at the Cambridge railway station CyclePoint.

abandoned unused and unusable locked bikes block access to this Sheffield bike stand

I applaud the Newnham Bakery taking over a parking space for cycle parking, but I wish they'd installed stands which actually support bikes - it's not that well used as a result.

Vital footway space taken by bikes and cars.

Bikes dumped outside a neighbours house after the council ignored my abandoned bike reports for months. Note also in the background: motor vehicles parked across the footway and bins causing obstruction.

Covered cycle parking but using troughs, which make it difficult to secure the bikes.

End of May 2019: This abandoned bike is still there in the CyclePoint see ... #102763

New cycle stands on Station Road, Cambridge, still not in use a month after they appeared.

Bins in the bike racks.

Still there see ... #102763

End rack damage in Free School Lane. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00312822 Response received 17 Apr 2019, 11:43 "We are pleased to confirm that work has been ordered to address this issue which sho ... [more]

Oh dear, just spotted these wheelbenders on the otherwise excellent West Cambridge site.

One of the bikes I turned upside down in September last year is still there at the end of March, see #102763

Silting up due to failed drainage.

Five months after I upturned that Raleigh bike it's still there, see #102763.

Official sign suggesting bikes should be attached to these railings adjacent to the car storage area. Workable, but pretty shabby offering here by Cambridge City Council. Sign lectures: WARNING Please do not fix bikes this side w ... [more]

Nice 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 ... [more]

Wheelbenders in a corner of a development.

Horrible racks - difficult to get the bikes in and provide no secure anchor point. Awful.

The Grand Arcade Cycle Park is closed on New Years day. (The Grand Arcade is closed but Lion Yard is open.) According to the sign the opening hours are: 07:00 to 23:30 Closed all day Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Easter Sunday.

Signs saying Retail customer cycle parking only. Clear indication of high demand. Solution is provide more cycle parking - plenty of space. Instead we get these bossy signs.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Strong demand because of the pub. Add three stands, at a 45 degree angle. This would not affect the turning circle.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Add two stands at a 45 degree angle over the yellow lines. This would not affect the turning circle.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. The new ARU building needs cycle parking at the entrance.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. The new ARU building needs cycle parking at the entrance. Land is likely to be private ownership.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Put stands on the buildout or at the end of it. Do this at an angle to avoid bikes going onto the road.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Add two stands at a 45 degree angle.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. There used to be a phone box here. Put a bay of 4 stands here, and move the bins slightly. This would provide residential cycle parking for nearby residents.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Ideally convert half a parking space to three sheffield stands. This would avoid bikes blocking the pavement.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Long bay of cycle parking next to the pub - 8 stands (16 cycles) could be installed. This would not affect the turning circle.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. The splay is very wide here - a newly-built crossing would be tighter. So put cycle parking where shown.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Add two stands at a 45 degree angle on the corner over the yellow lines. This would not affect the turning circle.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. The combination of the car storage and bikes on the pavement causes blockages. Add cycle parking on one side when the car parking becomes one-side.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Simply place two sheffield stands on this buildout. There are already yellow lines so people aren't allowed to park on the pavement here.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Residential cycle parking could be provided by placing two stands at an angle, overlapping with where the skip is.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Heavy demand due to the Calverley's. Possibly this turning circle isn't really required here.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Heavy demand due to the Calverley's. Put in place of where the last car is, and shift the car parking along by half a car's width.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. This whole area could be re-designed as an Environmental Improvement project, to be much nicer, with planting, cycle parking, and a bollard instead of the gate.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking. Heavy demand due to the pub. Put in place of the car at the end, and shift the car parking along by half a car's width.

No cycle parking at all in this area - every cycle shown in this picture is parked insecurely.

Fire escape cluttered.

Blocking

Truly awful cycling parking in this student accommodation block. How are they awful? Let me count the ways...

Cambridge station building looking splendid in the harsh winter light. Temporary bollards and threatening signage.

These two upside down bikes are still there just on the left at the top of the ramps after at least 29 days - see #102763.

It's really great to have new cycle parking in Romsey, but the workmanship on the installation is rather disappointing. The racks and bollards have been left covered with ugly dirt smears - which look to me like concrete dust. The groun ... [more]

See #102763. The bikes do now have tags that were added on the 15th saying they're going to be removed on the 31st.

Urgent need for more racks in Romsey.

CyclePoint I turned these bikes upside down about a month ago (September 2018) because I'd noticed they'd been missing a wheel on a few previous visits. They're still there! But there are plans to clean them out according to signs that a ... [more]

Wheelbenders at Trinity boat house

Evidence of unsatisfactory cycle parking on the Addenbrooke’s site.

A desperate shortage of cycle stands

Two apparently dumped bikes that have been there for a few days. Certainly not in safe rideable condition and which have been reported to the city council abandoned bike service.

Not enough cycle space in this (car) parking garage

Just two stands at the Chemistry of Health building - if they'd put them at 45 degrees they would easily have had space for more.

Covered but wheelbenders staff cycle parking at the bus depot.

Sad ofo - reported to @ofosupport The other bike reported to https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/report-an-abandoned-bike

Cambridge CyclePoint - a.k.a "Cycle what's the point"

Clear shortage of cycle parking at Calverley’s, but space for cycle parking

Clear shortage of cycle parking at Calverley’s

Poorly parked cycles combined with the camber of the buildout means these bikes have spread onto the footway. The look untidy and cause an obstruction.

New infill housing development off Mill Road, Cambridge - they seem to have car spaces and bin stores but there's no sign of cycle parking.

Not a clever installation of this bike hangar, or perhaps not a clever place to allow a motor vehicle to park.

Sadly predictable - Darwin College built accommodation with no easily accessible cycle parking, so bikes are chained to the fence outside.

Poor racks in front of the Portland Arms.

Corona Road

Broken bollard

Never enough cycle parking at Addenbrooke's.
