Cycle Parking in Richmond
Monday, 26 May 2008
Late May bank holiday weekend and whilst wandering around Richmond town centre on a break from the Twickenham regatta (look out for Richmond regatta at the end of June) I'm struck by how little bike parking there is. Until I came across this...
It was mid afternoon on a Sunday, the rain had disappeared and it was at least 20 degrees. Why are these racks empty? Because they are poorly placed and hidden, with no signs telling cyclists they are here. What about parking outside Richmond Station?
And then, in Buccleuch Gardens by the river, I saw this...
Who needs Richmond Council to provide parking?
It's things like this that makes bikes such brilliant things.
