Tonight at our AGM Tricia Fort, who has been instrumental for many many years to the GoBike campaign, stood down from her role on our committee. She has been a key component to GoBike, leading the campaign for many years, as well as fighting hard in keeping up our consultations aspect of the campaign. Tonight, she echoed her calls to other campaigners to step up and get more involved – and what better inspiration for us than Tricia’s footsteps. We will miss her dearly but knowing Tricia, we are sure that she is going to continue to give up her free time for many years to come to make Glasgow and in fact our world a better place.
Messages of thanks to Tricia have flooded in and so we wanted to share some of them here.
The 2021 GoBike AGM takes place in one week’s time on Tuesday 7th December at 7pm. This will be your opportunity to hear updates on our campaigning over the last year, and a chance to get more involved. You don’t have to be a member to come along – if you haven’t already registered please do so via Eventbrite to get your tickets, and to get access to the Zoom link.
You are warmly invited to join the 2021 GoBike Annual General meeting, to be held on Tuesday 7th December at 7pm. It will be an opportunity to hear from the committee about the achievements of the past twelve months, current campaigns and ongoing priorities.
Have you got a couple of hours free every month? Would you like to make Greater Glasgow a nicer place to cycle around? If so we need you! GoBike is a volunteer organisation; none of us is paid, we get no public funding and any money we have comes from you, our members. We do what we do because we believe life will be better if we have better cycling infrastructure. Do please read on to see just how you, yes you, could help.
