Projects

There are a number of projects being undertaken by the members of Gobike.

The current projects are:

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

A day dedicated to photographing the cycling infrastructure of Glasgow and the surrounding area.  This is looking to get people to snap both the good and the bad. More details to follow very soon…

Desire Network

Using local knowledge and map data to create a network map of what we need for cycling to be a convenient and safe way to travel across Glasgow. The main purpose of this map is as a communication tool to lobby councillors to do something about their local area. You can find out more and get involved at the Glasgow City Cycling forum page.

Friends of South City Way

A new group is being set up to support the new protected bike path from Queens Park to the city centre. By setting-up Friends of South City Way the hope is to minimise misinformation and increase local support.

Local Understanding of Cycling Infrastructure

A project looking at how to make consultation more accessible, looking beyond the usual stakeholder pool, with a view to engaging more effectively with local communities and also how local communities can organise themselves to represent their existing needs, while taking into account their future needs.

Quick, simple and cheap

Improvements to cycling infrastructure in Glasgow is too slow.  To speed it up this project is looking at cheap and simple ways to create new temporary cycling infrastructure as well as routes that would be best placed for these.

The Idaho Stop

A local campaign, to encourage a national campaign, to adopt positive measures for cyclists at traffic lights.

Cyclists are People Too

A campaign to encourage people to be more respectful of each other.

We use Trello and Slack to manage these projects, access to which is given to each GoBike member – drop us an email to convenor at gobike dot org if you’d be happy for us to invite you.
