Many thanks to Iona for keeping you up-to-date so well while I was off on a big tour of Kenya – four weeks without getting on a bike – and what news there was. A massive rethink on Byres Road! Didn’t we all do well! That’s the power of lots of us letting people know our views, so please keep writing and answering those surveys. Let’s hope Byres Road does become as peaceful as this earlier publicity picture suggests, but with those all important segregated cycle lanes.
Consultation for the up coming East City Way closes on Wednesday 10th of October so don’t miss out on putting forward your views. The East City Way will ultimately be a 7km fully bidirectional segregated cycle lane running from Mount Vernon up to the existing lane on London Road. We have been really pleased to see more safe segregated cycle lanes being proposed for Glasgow, and especially glad to see this now happening in the under provided for area of the east end. Plans for segregated cycle lanes always need our support and so if you have a couple of minutes, please fill out a really quick response here.

Further to last November’s public engagement event for proposed public realm works at Battlefield, we would like to make you aware of a drop-in launch event where you can meet the team, share your knowledge, and get more information on the project.
Glasgow City Council are taking the bold move to capitalise on recent road closures around George Square during the Glasgow 2018 events and are looking to potentially remove traffic permanently. GoBike are fully in support of this idea and would love to see George Square made a much friendlier, safer, quieter and less polluted place for people.
They have a survey here looking to gather opinions on this plan, and your input would be really appreciated – it only takes two minutes. Thanks for your assistance!
