  • Inaccessible gate on new path to Clifton Backies

    Anon // 1 thread

    This is very odd: what was previously a dirt track access to Clifton Backies from Minchin Close now newly paved, which is obviously welcome. Less wonderful is the gate between the Backies and Minchin Close which seems to provide enough width to allow certain motorised vehicles through while giving insufficient width to trikes, trailers, cargo bikes/trikes and buggies. Also unfortunate is the placing of the dropped kerb from the Minchin Close side which is in the wrong place, away from the gap. Is it finished? Who is it supposed to be for? It really isn't clear at all.

    Another, secondary, issue is the lack of any signage, either the usual blue 'Share, Respect, Enjoy' sign at the gate itself or a blue cycle route sign pointing to the gate from the entrance of Minchin Close. I've emailed the Council officers responsible about this, so hopefully some clarity will be provided and ideally action taken.

  • Inaccessible barrier to Clifton Backies - RESOLVED

    Anon // 1 thread

    Clifton Backies is part of an off-road route that links Clifford Moor to the Orbital Route. Entry to it is restricted by a barrier designed to prevent motorcyclists from entering it. Unfortunately this same barrier prevents non-standard cycles, like trikes, recumbents, cargo bikes, adaptive cycles etc from being able to use this path.


    Update: Following YCC representations to the Clifton Backies Management Board, this barrier has now been completely removed as part of an initiative to make the Backies more accessible to all! Excellent!

  • Augmented barrier between Clifton Backies & Herdwick Close/Water End

    Anon // 1 thread

    This could well be the worst barrier on a marked cycle path that I've seen in York. An existing barrier has been augmented with a wooden fence, forcing cyclists to dismount and push their bike through a constrained space, right into another fence! Getting a conventional bike through unscathed is a challenge for an able-bodied person - getting an unconventional bike or trailer through, or trying to get a bike through as a disabled person, is surely impossible.

    On a marked and signed cycle path.

  • Inaccessible Barriers on Scarcroft Lane

    Anon // 1 thread

    There are barriers at the eastern end of Scarcorft Lane to stop cars driving down the lane.

    But they are too close together to get bikes through that are wider than a standard bike, such as a cargo bike or a bike with a trailer. Even on a normal bike you have to be careful not to clip your pedals, it must be very hard for less stable cyclists such as those that are older or have a disability.

    The barriers are also at knee height and painted black with scratched off reflective stickers, in a alleyway thats badly lit. At night in winter it could be easy not to see them properly until its too late.

  • Hospital Fields Road barrier

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    The padlocked barrier at the end of Hospital Fields Road is inaccessible for non-standard cycles, and difficult to pass through for anyone except the most able-bodied cyclists.
