Half time: Green light for unicycles
We were intrigued by this traffic light on the Malton Road, on the northeast edge of York.
It's one of those curious places with a permanent green cycle signal, enabling cyclists to go through the left-hand bike channel whatever the main signal is showing.
Except the signal seems to be for the rear half of the bike only. A unicycle? A child's tagalong?
Somehow, cycle facilites in Britain always end up half-measures.
