York Minster's cycle "slalom" criticised
5:51pm Monday 16th September 2013 in News
Cyclists who treat the new piazza outside York Minster as a “sort of slalom challenge” have been slated by York Civic Trust. The conservation watchdog said that if irresponsible behaviour by a few cyclists did not improve, City of York Council might have to order people to dismount from their bicycles.
Bikes galore: More than 5,500 people got on their bikes and took to the temporarily traffic-free streets of York when the city staged its first Sky Ride bat the weekend. The ride, officially started by top cyclist Ben Swift, a member of leading professional racing outfit Team Sky, was an opportunity to enjoy a ride through the city without danger from cars.
