#iloh the Good

As cycle campaigners, it is often the bad and dangerous, or more often than not, the lack of cycling infrastructure that we shout about.  However, there is also some infrastructure around that we actually really do like, and would love to see more of.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain updated their Insert Loved One Here image creator, to enable people to show their love for genuinely good cycling infrastructure. Here in Glasgow, we decided to take make this physical, and had some stencils created with a love heart and the #iloh hashtag. An intrepid group of GoBike volunteers took to the rather chilly streets on the evening of the 13th of February, so that Glasgow could wake up the next morning to find a little bit of cycling infrastructure love. Here, we show you the bits we chose and why. Continue reading “#iloh the Good”

On Friday the 9th of February a number of intrepid GoBike members took to the streets of Glasgow, the purpose being to bring the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain’s Insert Loved One Here #iloh social media campaign into the physical world.

#HowMuchSpace Very Rough Schedule

So tomorrow is the day we take a photo on Ingram Street for #HowMuchSpace.  Below is a rough schedule for the morning.  It is going to be a very fluid 45 minutes, but hopefully everyone will have a wee bit of a laugh in the process.  Ultimately we hope to have an image that shows how much space is needed to move a number of people by car or bikes in a recognisable part of Glasgow.
