Glasgow SEC – take care this weekend, and for some time on Waterloo Street!

For all motor enthusiasts the Ignition Festival takes place at the SEC this weekend and it will cause disruption to pedestrians and cyclists, but great excitement to car fans.

This walkway from Finnieston is not yet closed, but will be soon:

If approaching from the east, ie along the Broomielaw from the city centre, then there is a very informative sign for you:

The map might be displayed by Friday, who knows.  All this, apart from affecting your commute or leisure trip might impede access to the meeting point for the GoBike ride on Sunday.  If so, we will try to let people know but, if you do intend to come on the ride and can’t get to the meeting point, phone the contact point given on the Rides page on the website:

GoBike member, Andy Winter, posted on our Facebook group yesterday about the closure of a section of the West City Way on Waterloo Street, between Douglas Street and Pitt Street, with no alternative signed.  See:  If travelling east it means either using the footway on the south side of Waterloo Street, or cycling up Pitt Street to Bothwell Street.  If travelling west, the roadway may be used.  Flagship cycle route?  Hmm.
