A relatively short ride, 18 miles with next to no hills, and travelling over an award-winning bridge!
To celebrate the opening of the new Stockingfield Bridge over the Forth & Clyde Canal in Maryhill, which was due to open in September, we will have a tour of the areas around the canal, including the Claypits Nature Reserve and Ruchill, before using the bridge. We will then head to Clydebank along the towpath, to view the Titan Crane, then return into Glasgow along the Loch Lomond cycle path, ending up at Kelvingrove.
18 miles, largely on the flat – so what’s not to like?
We meet at 10:00 hours at the north end of Bell’s Bridge, at the SEC in Glasgow
It’s worth noting that :
The Stockingfield Bridge project has won the 2022 ICE People’s Choice Award.
The annual award, from the Institution of Civil Engineers, recognises civil engineering projects that have made a positive impact on their local communities.
The £14m two-way spanning, cable-stayed pedestrian and cycling bridge at Stockingfield project took 21 months to complete.
It connects communities on either side of the Forth & Clyde Canal for the first time since 1790.
