[Image taken 8.10.21] Navigation Road, York. The rider has a car but prefers to make journeys by cycle – in all weathers. This is what I call a ‘York’cycle. A machine set up for utility and/or caring duties. Such cycles can be heavy and wide and the infra needs to accommodate them. That’s cycle paths, cycle parking and, as this cyclist alerted me to, where you get on and get off. Despite the open frame, this cyclist mounts and dismounts with a leg backwards over the saddle not between the handlebar stem and the saddle. Providing wider lanes and larger gaps between cycle racks makes the provision more accessible, more inclusive and more sustainable as it doesn’t limit access or use to certain users. Other ‘York’cycle images today: #174708, #174709. Other images today: #174710, #174711, #174712, #174713, #174714, #174715, #174716
