GoBike Ride – Sunday 7th April – Strathkelvin Railway Path

We will head along Sauchiehall Street before heading out through the north eastern part of the city into the countryside around Auchinloch. We will then join the Strathkelvin Railway Path at Lenzie and head for our lunch stop at Clachan of Campsie. The return will be via Strathblane and Milngavie, and onto the Kelvin Walkway.

35 miles, including a steep climb out of Strathblane.

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. Rides start at 10am all year round. 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.

Difficulty 4/5

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.
