Cycle parking boost

Some progress has been made to address the lack of cycle parking provision on Tadcaster Road, with the installation of a cycle hoop outside the shops at the junction with Slingsby Grove.

There remains no cycle parking outside the Post Office. With a new café set to open up next door, the need for some cycle parking here is even greater. We will press the case for some investment here.

More City centre cycle parking

The amount of parking spaces for bikes in the city centre has increased to over 1,000.

cycle racks

Throughout 2013 the council has added space for an extra 150 bikes within the city centre, which has been done by adding new cycle racks and extending some existing racks. This has grown the number of spaces by 18 per-cent compared to the beginning of the year.

The new spaces are located on:

  • · Goodramgate
  • · Piccadilly
  • · King Street
  • · North Street
  • · Nunnery Lane car park
  • · Micklegate
  • · Lendal (outside the Post Office)

The existing racks that have been extended are:

  • · Library Square
  • · Castle Museum
  • · Lendal (outside Zizzi’s)
  • · Esplanade
  • · Castle Car Park
