GoBike ride Sunday 05 June, 25 miles, around and about East Kilbride

Side-by-side crossing at Brouster Hill, East Kilbride


We will head off through Cathcart and Linn Park, and head out through Carmunnock to get to the outskirts of East Kilbride (avoiding trunk roads such as the A726). We’ll take a little time to explore the K-Woodlands, before joining a cycle route into the town centre to see the new cycle infrastructure there. After continuing across town, we will return to Glasgow, descending through Castlemilk and King’s Park, where we might just see Aitkenhead House, shown in the photo, just in time for lunch.

25 miles, including some off-road paths and steps in the K-Woodlands.
