In June 2017 GoBike sent this letter, to all 84 newly elected Glasgow Councillors. Within minutes Councillor Elspeth Kerr, SNP, for Drumchapel / Anniesland replied, followed by others, and following a reminder after the summer recess, a grand total of 15, representing 10 wards, had replied to say yes. We offered each of them a tour of the city or their ward, by bike or by foot. More replied once the tours started and by October, 25% of the city’s councillors had responded to us.
