You needn't have a quality bike but if you cherish what you ride use a decent lock and mind where you lock it. Broken bikes and broken locks are a too familiar sight behind the Brewers Arms on St Johns Street. See also #65993.

Finally, the return of cycle parking to Colchester Town station.

Homebase, Toll Gate, Colchester. Has good cycle parking in size, unfortunately they block it with shop displays or is cluttered up with uncollected trolleys. Complaints havent made a difference too. Another example: http://cycle.st/p5227 ... [more]

Cycle Parking, Sainsbury at Priory Walk, Colchester. Good amount for the size of the store.

Aldi, has some good Cycle parking. Only issue I have is that you have to walk across the entrance/exit of car park & the cars do turn into the car park too quick.

The Range, Cowdray Ave. The only cycle parking constantly blocked by their shop displays they use 2 parking bays for. Despite no. of complaints nothing gets done.

Cycle parking at St Johns Church hall, the Ipswich Road entrance.

Spot the cycle racks at The Range! There are two Sheffield stands amongst the plants -- see #35729.

Cycle parking at the new Magistrates Court. It is right by the entrance, but spacing could be better (see also #36478)

At the same time bike symbols finally graced this bit of cycle lane (see also #35716) in Crouch St, so did what appears to be a parking or loading bay. This bay explains why the drop kerb is so much wider than the narrow "elephant feet" cro ... [more]

This cycle lane on Crouch St had been awaiting symbols since its creation sometime ago. They are now in place, along with unwelcome symbols in the shape of a parking/loading bay (see #35717). If vans or cars are to be parked in this narr ... [more]

Unsigned, rubbish cycle parking at the Wilson Marriage Centre.

Market stall renders a Sheffield stand useless, on Culver St. West.

Ten new Sheffield stands on Culver St. West, replacing 11 (see #17766). On this occasion only 18 bikes can be locked against these (rather than the intended 20) as a market stall is obstructing one of the stands (see #28698). This is an ... [more]

If this is the extent of cycle parking (8 Sheffield stands) at the new 140,000 sq ft Sainsbury's, then it is pittance, especially since there are some 845 car parking spaces. Also note the 90 degree turns in the path which will likely be ... [more]
