There are barriers at the eastern end of Scarcorft Lane to stop cars driving down the lane.
But they are too close together to get bikes through that are wider than a standard bike, such as a cargo bike or a bike with a trailer. Even on a normal bike you have to be careful not to clip your pedals, it must be very hard for less stable cyclists such as those that are older or have a disability.
The barriers are also at knee height and painted black with scratched off reflective stickers, in a alleyway thats badly lit. At night in winter it could be easy not to see them properly until its too late.
