173822Photo #173822[Image taken 3.9.21] Vicar Lane, Bradford. [Note: No streetview here.] Ah, taxis can be electric and therefore need charging points too. I haven't spotted any dedicated bays in York, yet. Other images today: #173801 and linksOther:

173820Photo #173820[Image taken 3.9.21] Vicar Lane, Bradford. [Note: No streetview here.] I'm looking out for reasons why, if there is car parking, there should not be cycle parking too. Ie can I say to a local authority, if there's car parking, in every case there should be racks for cycles too? My starting point was York: #173664. Riding through Bradford I spotted this and another: #173821. They are new, they are cycle parking and they are in car parks. Another example, this time onroad: #170649.

170655Photo #170655[Image taken 25.6.21] Hall Ings, Bradford. Bradford Capital of Cycling is split across two sites - see also: #170654 and links. This building has work areas in the windows. During the day you can see volunteer mechanics working on cycles. This makes the frontage truly active. Thereby enlivening the streetscape, giving a human feel to an area that is dominated by motor vehicles, making the area feel safer for pedestrians, and promoting cycling in the city.

170649Photo #170649[Image taken 24.6.21] Outside Bread + Roses, 14 North Parade, Bradford. Two forms of cycle parking: both from cyclehoop (www.cyclehoop.com/) and both designed to fit on a car parking space. The dark enclosed shape is a Bikehangar (www.cyclehoop.com/product/shelters-canopies/bikehangar/). This is secure cycle parking in which users rent a space. The spotty frame is a Car Bike Port (www.cyclehoop.com/product/racks/car-bike-port/) and is for short-term or spontaneous use. The Bikehangar has been added since October 2020 - Streetview shows only the spotty casual provision. Other images from Bradford today see: #170647 and links.

170647Photo #170647[Image taken 24.6.21] Godwin Street, Bradford. Hoarding-mounted gallery. Adds interest to a location. But is also much less threatening a backdrop to city life than blank hoardings. There is room here people to be able to stop and enjoy the images. Where you put up pictures or graphics intended to encourage people to tarry there needs to be space for people to dwell without putting themselves at risk or obstructing others - compare with: #169471.

135514Photo #135514The B6429 is used by local cyclists to make trips to Bingley, including to the train station. Cars drive dangerously fast between Cullingworth and Harden and many accidents have happened . Families could safely make the cycle journey to St. Ives if there was provision.. The section between St. Ives and Bingley is narrow and cars drive too close to cyclists and can be abusive. The pavement could be used for cyclists and pedestrians on the uphill direction.Cycleway:

132339Photo #132339There are a few schools in the area: a secondary girls school and a primary school. The area has mostly industrial and commuting traffic which is inconsiderate to cyclists, is very fast and often leaves a large amount of rubble on the roads which cause punctures and potholes. There is an ascent which means that as a cyclist trying to commute to work, you are constantly overtaken by large vans and lorries and it’s difficult to turn right at the roundabouts without fear of cars not stopping or trying to overtake. I believe a cycle track from the bottom of mill road to join to the cycle track in Bowling Park would be incredibly beneficial for those commuting through and would encourage more commuters to take this route and families or pupils of the schools to try to use cycling as their form of transport.Cycleway:
