Do you have an hour to spare this coming Sunday morning? Some of our members have organised an appreciation event for the work happening on Sauchiehall Street. Here’s Euan with more:

They’ve just put out a really interesting blog illustrating connections within our current cycling network, with suggestions on how Byres Road can help start to create better connections locally and also throughout the wider city network.
