Bike Week's thrilling climax in York

Yesterday saw a cycle parade through the streets of the historic city following a special service for cyclists at York Minster, while the racecourse played host to a range of bicycle themed attractions over the weekend, with an added feature being the arrival of a prototype Olympic torch on Saturday

Yes, please find a special place in your prayers for anyone who cycles in York and has to put up with infrastructure like this.

Clifton (A19). The Audi (above) is parked perfectly legally. And not far away, on the other side of the road, the cycle lane is also subordinated to the greater priority of supplying parking spaces on a direct route to and from the city centre.
