Yay! Third time lucky! GoBike ride today, 04 February

Yes, 6 brave souls headed out in the wind and rain for an excellent 15 miles – yes, just 15 miles of a ride, but we saw lots.

We saw football grounds, old and new, cycle tracks, parks (lots of), a museum or two, cycle infrastructure and rivers. We climbed hills and speeded down them, avoided dogs and their owners, just about missed cars crossing the South City Way and, despite the weather, had a great time.

Do join us next time, or the one after. The infrastructure ride planned for January, but delayed because of ice, will now be in April. For December’s ride, cancelled because of snow, check our website Rides page and we look forward to seeing you sometime.

Proposed development at former ExxonMobil site, Bowling

“The best laid schemes

…o’ Mice an’ Men, Gang aft agley.” Happy Burns Night! Rabbie lived in Dumfries for a while and this first issue of 2024 includes events on Galloway and Ayrshire’s hopes to become a new national park (before the bid goes to the Scottish Parliament). Also, there are updates on two City Deal plans for “relief roads” with question marks about active travel links around them.

In the Southside, there’s a day of workshops in Govanhill. A few pre-consultations for development plans close soon, followed by the Development Frameworks for Pollok and Easterhouse. Nextbike have a survey about new hire station locations. Traffic Orders have started to re-appear, including ones for Avenues Plus.

If at first you don’t succeed…

Happy St Andrew’s Day.

Closing today – a consultation in Argyll and Bute plus two Liveable Neighbourhood plans for the Southside of the city.

Glasgow also has a glut of guidance, frameworks and traffic orders. North Lanarkshire looks at speed limits in Seven Lochs Wetland Park. Renfrewshire has a few more tries at taming traffic.

We’re still working on the new Digest (apologies for any stray test posts last week).
