Baths lack of bike stands

This is getting silly. IMG_4352 I came back to get my bike from a very small cycle stand B&NES have put up outside the Guildhall to once again find a space taken by someone with a business in the Covered Market who is promoting it through a special ad-covered bicycle.

Because of this, someone had actually chained their bike on top of mine so l had to try and lift my machine free from being wedged between this extra bike and the stand itself. Not easy.IMG_4351

There are no where near enough bike stands in Bath and it does not help when businesses – however tough times are – are using what is available to genuine cyclists to park bikes promoting their products.
