Sunday 7th October – Kilmacolm Circular
We shall head out mostly on minor roads through Paisley, Linwood and Houston to Kilmacolm. After lunch, we’ll return to Paisley via the NCN75 path to visit a few more of the town’s attractions to be seen along the way, before continuing onwards to Glasgow. This ride has been rescheduled from March due to rather snowy conditions. All in, a 40 mile mix of urban and countryside sightseeing.
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)
Significant hill climbing.
Please note that rides are subject to alteration/cancellation due to the weather.
