Catharine Street - lack of cycle parking

Badly installed cycle parking at a recent development on Catharine Street.

We’ve come into the city to watch Swan Lake at the CornEx. The Grand Arcade cycle park is closed but car park open. https://twitter.com/simon_nuttall/status/947884118616039430

Proof of need for cycle parking in this part of Thoday Street. See #95140.

Two bikes are parked here, one against the lamppost and the other against the decapitated sewer vent and there's a double yellow line in between. What an excellent place for some cycle parking stands! See #95248.

Cycle racks bent - presumably by being struck by motor vehicles either backing or turning. Without bollards or kerbs to protect them racks are prone to this type of damage.

Hi, I wonder if you can help? I am the Supporters Director at Cambridge United. I would like to have more cycle racks at the club to allow supporters to be able to come to matches on their bikes and keep them secure. I wonder if there ar ... [more]

overcrowding at Madingley Road park and ride - no cycle culls carried out in last 4 years despite requests. Inadequate additional parking provided last year: not under-cover, plus some sheffield stands only bolted to block-paving (i.e. with ... [more]

Wheelbender racks outside The Portland Arms. Not a happy sight.

It's crying out for a permanent sign.

A Cycle Point sign (on what would the fascia board, for example) would still be a good idea here. A permanent one. (Plus sign posts.)

Beacon Rise on Harvest Way - no visitor cycle parking at this new development

Ideal spot for cycle parking which would serve Cherry Trees (see #92092), as well as local residents. This new car storage location has been unused for months.

Amateurish attempt to try to enforce the cargo bikes area

Space needed for proper cycle parking on Gwydir Street

Collection of wheels locked to racks that need removing

Wheelbenders at a refurbished restaurant

Cycle parking needed near Jesus Green tennis courts.

Cycle parking needed by tennis courts / playground.

Cycle parking outside the Co-op on Mill Road is often under heavy demand.

Cycle parking outside the Co-op on Mill Road is often under heavy demand.

Space needed for proper cycle parking so that bikes are not left blocking the footway.

New pub, The Petersfield, opens with expanded floor space but no cycle parking, and, sure as night follows day, No Cycles signs appear from householders (not unreasonably) wanting to protect their brickwork

By the entrance to the tennis courts

The railings are full of bikes from Parkside school every weekday morning.

For the four tennis courts and the playground.

This has happened in the last couple of hours I think.

Cambridge's Station Square is now more or less open, but some people still can't find the cycle parking.

Cycle parking still absent here at this new commercial premises on the ground floor. Was it required and not yet installed, or did the Council forget to require it?

Lots of bars and places in this area and so little parking! I am always forded to chain to the traffic lights or to sign posts

So, if someone hadn't told you, would you know that the staircase on the right is the pedestrian entrance to the Cycle Point? And would you know where to wheel your bike in? Put some signs up on the building, people!

Clear proof that people dislike double-stacker racks - not a single bike on the top row

More cycle parking needed - there clearly is the space if it can be better arranged

Clear proof that people dislike double-stacker racks - very few bikes on the top row

Sign discouraging informal cycle parking (which is a sign of failure to provide it properly)

No cycle parking here at all as far as I could see. There is a new-ish (and very good) café here, so it could really do with some. Note this car park does get very busy during the week so the question of where to put any bike racks is a ... [more]

Inexclusibly bad cycle parking for a new development

Missing cycle parking - a few spaces seem to have disappeared for some reason

It might be the best college in the world (so I'm led to believe) but it doesn’t appear to have the best bike parking.

Aggressive notices banning parking cycles against the railings, which has been done here for decades

Cycle parking needed on this car-dominated development

Cycle parking at MakeSpace and cut-through to Silver St - this is a hotspot for cycle theft, perhaps we could have some cameras here?

Is that it? Not a lot of cycle parking for ice-skaters at the North Pole 2016 (not open at the time I passed).

Railings are better than nothing - but such unofficial cycle parking is not welcoming and can cause problems for footway users.

Mawson Road - evidence of the need for cycle parking.

Cycle parking needed here

No cycle parking provided - ridiculous for a new streetscaping scheme

Tags on a fly parked bike to warn the owner that it will be removed soon. A better solution would be to install more cycle parking where people need it. (Though periodic culls of bikes that have been around for weeks is not unreasonable.)

Second wave of cycle parking enforcement at the station. A better solution would be to install more cycle parking where people need it.

New wheelbenders (I'm surprised these horrid things are still made) at the new Millworks restaurant.

Clear proof that people dislike double-stacker racks -almost no bikes on the top row

Opposite Cambridge station - bikes locked to a goods lift (not a wheelchair lift, thank goodness).

Bikes left not secured to anything in front of Cambridge station, in spite of posters urging people to use the new multistorey cycle park.

Bikes strewn in front of Cambridge station, in spite of signs urging people to use the new multistorey cycle park (at rear).

Bikes strewn in front of Cambridge station, in spite of signs urging people to use the new multistorey cycle park.

Note on drainpipe says No Cycles and then there's a bike there.

No parking in front of Magdalene College

Very few parking spaces along Regent St, especially in front of the Prince Regent pub and the Catholic Church.

New cycle parking, but no dropped kerb - do developers actually think about users?

Terrible cycle parking at this new development

There is insufficient visitor cycle parking outside Robinson College's main entrance and that which there is is mostly of low quality.

There is a lack of visitor cycling on the 17 Mill Lane site and as the site is being redeveloped that should be addressed as part of the plans.

Terrible cycle parking at this new development

Why oh why are people finding it so hard to find the new cycle park (in the background)? Ed: similar scene from 15 years ago: #9351.

Alignment of the platform bridge with the first floor of the cycle park, where a new connection should be created over platform 6

Cycle parking needed here for visitors

No cycle parking provided at this new shop

Cycle park entrance closed without notice

Ramp to the second floor - with bits of construction equipment still left lying about

Atrociously bad cycle parking at a new development - this should not have been approved

Atrociously bad cycle parking at a new development - this should not have been approved

Cycle parking here would encourage people to stop for the shop much more regularly - leaving a bike anywhere here is almost impossible

There's normally cycle parking provided in this area for the Folk Festival e.g see #17965 There is none in this area year :-( but there are other racks nearby eg #83105.

Wheelbenders at Cambridge City cemetery on Newmarket Road.

The racks at Cherry Trees, which is used for Area Committees every other month, are really badly installed - so only really have half the capacity. It would be good if they could be encouraged to install them properly, and add more racks in ... [more]

Continuing chaos opposite Cambridge station - the multistorey cycle park (in the block dead ahead) needs much more prominent signage.
