PoP on COP GoBike Feeder Ride

Join us on the GoBike feeder ride from Strathclyde Country Park to the start of the Global Day of Climate Action march on COP26 on the 6th of November. We are riding along a safe route, suitable for all ages and abilities, at a pace where no-one will be left behind. We plan to pick up folk on the way at the following meet points:

09:15 Strathclyde Country Park Sports Centre
10:00 Blantyre Train Station
10:25 Newton Train Station
10:45 Cambuslang Rosebank Bridge
11:10 Dalmarnock Bridge Underpass
11:30 Glasgow Green McLellan Arch
Noon Kelvingrove Park

At the march we plan to join Pedal on Parliament’s ‘Cycling Bloc (sustainable transport)’ where we can tell the world that THIS MACHINE FIGHTS CLIMATE CHANGE.

To help us get an idea of how many biscuits we need please visit our Facebook Event and tell us if you are going to come along.

There are six feeder rides in Glasgow, if you are coming from a different part of the city. Also, should you becoming from even further afield there should be a ride you can join. Information on all the rides being organised can be found out here from Pedal on Parliament

Go Bike AGM and Public Meeting 2020

The GoBike Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday the 19th November 2020 from 19:00. It will be followed by our annual public meeting and end around 21:00.

As with most events this year, we will have to undertake this remotely. To help us ensure that the technology is able to cope, we will be requiring people to register via Eventbrite. A further notification will come out shortly with the Eventbright link and details on our guest speaker.

We hope as many of our members and friends can attend, it has certainly been a quite strange year. However, one that has brought significantly more cycling friendly infrastructure to our roads than we would have imagined at the AGM last year.
