The first GlasgowCycleInfraDay, back in 2015, was the brainchild of Magnatom (a.k.a. David). Shocked at the state of Glasgow’s cycle lanes he put the call out on his blog one Tuesday night. With a little over 24-hours notice, the response from across Glasgow (and beyond) was phenomenal.
This year’s campaign, #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17, is nearly here. Next Friday, September 8th, it will be time once again to fill Twitter with the best and the worst of Glasgow’s cycling infrastructure.
I can't think that these islands serve any practical purpose at all… too costly to remove? #GlasgowCycleInfraday pic.twitter.com/3mKvKrX7I0

Taking part on the day will be easy. All you need is the desire to make Glasgow a better city for cycling… and a camera. You don’t need a fancy camera, the one in your phone will do the job. Just take a picture of any cycling infrastructure you see on Friday that you think is worth recording (or a place where you think it’s needed) and Tweet it with where you took it and the hashtag #GlasgowCyclieInfraDay17. Don’t have a Twitter account? No problem, just email it to CycleInfraDay@gmail.com and we’ll Tweet it for you.
It couldn’t be easier to help shape the future of cycling in Glasgow for everybody.
But we need your help before then too.
The more people who take part, the better the picture of Glasgow’s infrastructure we’ll end up with and the harder it will be to ignore us. So please, spread the word. Tell your friends. Tweet about it. Every single photograph is important so shout it from the rooftops: #GlasgowCycleInfra17 is coming! Get involved!!
