Racks overflowing with bikes, early September 2021

Cycle parking needed at entrance to Coleridge Rec

New Co-op opens with no cycle parking, yet plenty of space for various pavement-blocking paraphernalia

Need for racks in Great Eastern Street.

Bicycles face the rack at Woodlands Surgery. Better racks are nearby at #172430.

Believe it or not, this is active cycle parking and the bikes are not wrecks.

Need for cycle parking outside the Pipasha restaurant on Ditton Walk.

POLITE THREAT The message on this note that is attached to a cargo bike parked in the corner of a motor vehicle dealership reads: "POLITE NOTICE The owner of the dealership has requested that you do not park your bike on his land, ... [more]

New two-tier cycle parking at King's College - anything rather than reducing the space for car storage?

A few of the pop-up cycle stands at Trumpington Park & Ride could be taken apart with an Allen key.

Wheel benders at St Philip Howard Catholic Church.

Wheel benders at St Philip Howard Catholic Church.

No Bicycles sign - if they provided something better than wheelbender parking, there wouldn't be an issue.

Reflections flooding

This broken rack has been lying around in this cycle park for months.

Street cycle parking space needed here.

Cycle parking at the Trumpington Road P+R. Toast racks like this don't look permanent to me, but I'm guessing these are. Not good enough, if so. They should be covered and more secure to start with.

Stands gradually being removed as they become loose, due to being wrongly installed in the first place

Need for cycle Parking in Thoday Street.

Broken racks - nice idea in principle to provide wheel supports against these stands, like on the left. In practice though they have turned out to be fragile.

Need for cycle parking in Ross Street.

Cycle parking needed

Strange - absurdly over-specified cycle stands with the other side taken out of use to allow a second car to be squeezed in (as visible on Google satellite).

Cycles are often parked here, but there is no formal cycle parking.

Really, what is the point? Take every second stand out and you might have something useable. And it's been like this since at least 2003 - #7011.

There are bikes in every porch and only one has a wall anchor fitted - the rest are just unsecured.

Informally parked cycles in Richmond Terrace. It’s about time that official space is found here to provide secure and welcoming place for them.

PRIVATE PROPERTY NOT NO CYCLING symbol NO BICYCLES PLEASE LOCKS WILL BE CUT WITHOUT WARNING ALL ATTACHED ITEMS WILL BE REMOVED There are clearly lots of cyclists who live near or in this private development, but there’s apparentl ... [more]

Cambridge CyclePoint - a visit on an infrastructure tour. The main problem of this cycle park is no-one wants to pay to maintain it properly. Hence it is dirty, littered with broken racks and has a high rate of cycle theft.

Covered wheelbenders 😟☹️

Bins and bikes dumping ground :-/ Video in this tweet: https://twitter.com/simon_nuttall/status/1222501133488402432?s=20

City-centre parking fully occupied by 09.25 - now if only there was a nice covered cycle park where shop staff could leave their bikes, it might be easier for their customers to get in....

There was once some nice big hoops here (see #35944), now unfriendly signs and wheelbenders 😱

Messy bike parking - the white bike looks like it has been used once and has been abandoned on these racks for about three weeks. For more info see: https://www.camcycle.org.uk/newsletters/145/nl145.pdf Page 22

Irony - the sticker on the leaning bike rack asks: Have you locked your bike correctly?

Evidence of need for a formal place to park cycles in these streets.

Plenty of car storage but not enough cycle parking, on Regent Street

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]

Cycle parking needed at Magnet

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.

Cycle parking needed, as informal parking blocks the pavement

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

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

Why cycle stands must always enable the frame to be lockable.

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.

Non-compliant cycle parking

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.

Space available for cycle parking

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. 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.
