Cycle Rides, GoBike!

GoBike Ride to Strathblane and Killearn – Sunday 3rd June

 

If our current glorious weather continues, this coming month’s GoBike ride is set to be a stunner, as we head north out of the city, to Strathblane and Killearn.

This ride will see us leaving Glasgow through Bearsden and Milngavie, and over the hill to Strathblane. We will then continue to Killearn and back via different routes, before returning to Glasgow via the Bears Way and Garscube Estate. On the way out, we will look at a cycle route being developed in Knightswood. A 37 mile round trip, with a rough section of track near Blanefield.

Meet 10am at the pagoda at the North end of the Bell’s Bridge.

Rides are generally around 30-40 miles in length, although winter rides are shorter. Often there is the option to return by train for a shorter ride. A lunch break is usually taken in a suitable pub or café en route, although you are welcome to bring your own picnic if you wish. Rides are usually on tarmac surfaces (road or path) and suitable for most types of bikes, e.g. tourer, racer, hybrid, mountain bike, but will occasionally feature sections of route on rougher paths or tracks – see ride descriptions for details.

Difficulty 4/5

Ride on paths (cycle paths, paths in parks, etc) / Ride on quiet roads (residential streets, country lanes) / Ride on canal towpaths

Significant hill climbing.
