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.
We have seen a massive turn around by the council this week following our campaigning for a segregated cycle lane for Byres Road (woop woop and yay for everyone involved!) and so to celebrate we thought it would be timely to highlight the campaigning we have been involved in over the last year or so. A whistle stop tour for now, but look out for our new website coming soon, with more info. Continue reading “GoBike Campaign Success”
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.

We shall head out mostly on minor roads through Paisley, Linwood and Houston to Kilmacolm. After lunch, we’ll return to Paisley via the NCN75 path to visit a few more of the town’s attractions to be seen along the way, before continuing onwards to Glasgow. This ride has been rescheduled from March due to rather snowy conditions. All in, a 40 mile mix of urban and countryside sightseeing.

At long last a little more cycling provision may be coming to the east of the city. Phase 1 for the design for the East City Way project has begun consulting online (here) and a public drop in session will be held this coming week on
There will be a temporary diversion in place from tomorrow Tuesday 25th September for two weeks along part of the NCN75 at Dalmarnock. This is due to the need to form two outfall points at the river Clyde. The diversion route is shown as the red dashed line on this map.
We are so excited to be a part of the team who will be bringing Glasgow their first ever World Car Free day celebration this very Saturday 22nd September. On Kelvin Way we will be joining cities from all around the world in celebrating a reclamation of the street for people.
Tricia, our incredible lead on consultations is away this month adventuring the world and reviewing actual zebras crossing, so this guest consultation digest comes to you from your consultations novice co-convenor, who continues to be amazed by the scale of Tricias task and how well she handles it. Normal and more capable service will resume in October! In the meantime we have some mostly positive consultations for you to get stuck into, and a win win suggestion we’ve made to the council on their standard traffic calming policy.

GoBike co-convenor Iona has recently returned from a beautiful trip to sunny Seville – a city that has been crowned by some, as the fourth most bicycle friendly city in the world. And what she found was a cycle network, a not always perfect network, but a fully linked up, joined up and functional… network.
