GoBike member, Jimmy Keenan, along with others, is keen to maintain the fledgling Clarion Cycle Club, a socialist cycling organisation, in Glasgow and there is a short cycle ride tomorrow evening, Friday 02 September, a tour of Glasgow, preceding the AGM.
The ride starts from the STUC building on Woodlands Road/Park Road – assemble in the car park from 6pm for a prompt depart at 6:30 for a circular tour of under 5 miles through the whole range of cycling infrastructure in Glasgow, from contraflow on one-way streets, to shared footways, shared footpaths, advisory lanes on city streets, to segregated cycle way to one of the city’s parks.
En route the ride passes one of the few statues to women in Glasgow, La Pasionara and the monument to the firefighters and rescuers who lost their lives in the Cheapside Fire Disaster in 1960, fourteen from the Glasgow Fire Service and five from Glasgow Salvage Corps. Cycle and Learn!
The ride will be followed by the Glasgow Clarion AGM and, in turn, the AGM will be followed by a wee refreshment.
