** POSTPONED ** WCV Campaigners Training Day

We are really sorry to announce that Saturday’s WCV Campaigners Training Day has had to be postponed due to the weather.

Until the next time, enjoy the white stuff!

Campaigners Training Day – THIS WEEKEND!

Our co-hosted Campaigners Training Day has come around so quickly that this weekend on Saturday it will be here! We are hastily getting our workshops polished off, finalising running orders and of course booking in the lunches, and although it’s looking like it’s going to be really buzzing there, are still a few free spaces available. Get yourselves booked in on the Eventbrite page here. Continue reading “Campaigners Training Day – THIS WEEKEND!”

#iloh – The Dangerous

On Friday the 9th of February a number of intrepid GoBike members took to the streets of Glasgow, the purpose being to bring the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain’s Insert Loved One Here #iloh social media campaign into the physical world.

 

 

Armed with bright orange spray chalk and some laser cut stencils, two teams adventured on their bikes to the roads of Glasgow.

Sauchiehall Avenue Support Event – Sunday 28th Jan 11am

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:

“A safer, better Sauchiehall Street is currently under construction. There will be more space for people, complete with safe cycling provision! Come along this Sunday 28th Jan for 11am at ABC, Sauchiehall St to join us in showing support.”

People Make Byres Road

Over the last year some of our members led by Euan, Iain and Jim have been working very hard on a ‘Space for People’ @peoplebyresroad campaign based around the planned changes to Byres Road. 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.

Have a read – it’s great – and if you like what you read give them a follow and a share. And thanks to you three for your excellent work.
