Our annual event to record the Good and Bad cycling infrastructure returns this Friday 13th September. Get your phone out and take photos of all those bits of infrastructure you love, a well as the ones that get under your skin. Then post them online to your favourite social media platform with the hashtag #GlasgowCycleInfraDay19
The idea for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay is a simple one: we use twitter to record “a day in the life of Glasgow’s cycle lanes”. A look at the good, the bad, and the simply absent cycling infrastructure over 24 hours.
Getting involved is even simpler still. Just grab your camera or your phone, if you see any cycling infrastructure you think is worth recording just take a photo and post it with this year’s hashtag #GlasgowCycleInfraDay19. Remember and include the location of the infrastructure.
We will be collating the responses and handing them over to Glasgow City Council, to highlight where they’re letting us down and, just as importantly, what they’re getting right.
To make it easier for us to do that, the more precise you can about the location of the image the easier it is for us to map. In your post if you could please either tag the location or add the street name.
It would also help us massively if you could add the link to your post to the #GlasgowCycleInfraDay19 map This will allow others to see where has and where hasn’t been photographed across the city. We also use this to provide information back to the Council. The interactive map can be found here.
If you are not on social media you can also get involved. Take your photos either on your phone or camera and upload directly to the interactive #GlasgowCycleInfraDay19 map.
The more pictures we show the council, the more likely they are to understand what the city needs and this will help us be able to push for change. So spread the word… and remember your phone/camera on Friday September 13th.
