So what about the quality of bike parking? It's easy, right? Nowt complicated, no big engineering job like building cycle routes would be. Here is a quick cycle parking impression at Newcastle's prestigious Haymarket.

On close inspection it's the bolts fault. It's the bolt's fault that it is made of that material and that it's too short. Or maybe the acid rain or air quality problems are more severe than previously thought?
But there is some hope, as innovation can be spotted also.
|Bike parking innovation No.1 - settled utility repair provides opportunity|
|Bike parking innovation No.2 - parallel paving slabs provide opportunity (actually rather dangerous!!)|
