Sunday 4th November – Baldernock Loop
This ride will take in the East Dunbartonshire countryside around Balmore and Baldernock, but on the way out of the city we will see a couple of contrasting housing developments, both of which include cycle paths. The return will be via the Bears Way and Kelvin Walkway, arriving back in Glasgow in time for lunch. 20 miles, with a short length of unsurfaced path between Cadder and Balmore and a couple of short lengths on busy main roads.
Meet 10am at the pagoda at the North end of the Bell’s Bridge.
Rides are generally around 30-40 miles in length, although winter rides are shorter. Often there is the option to return by train for a shorter ride. A lunch break is usually taken in a suitable pub or café en route, although you are welcome to bring your own picnic if you wish. Rides are usually on tarmac surfaces (road or path) and suitable for most types of bikes, e.g. tourer, racer, hybrid, mountain bike, but will occasionally feature sections of route on rougher paths or tracks – see ride descriptions for details.
GoBike rides are social rides for GoBike members, and are not a club run. We would ask that anyone coming along adheres to the rules of the road, rides no more than two abreast, and takes the safety of other riders around them into account when cycling.
Ride on paths (cycle paths, paths in parks, etc) / Ride on quiet roads (residential streets, country lanes) / Ride on rough tracks (farm or forest tracks, unmade paths, etc) / Ride on busy roads
