Sunday 2 December – The Bridges of Glasgow
For our final ride of the year we will take a trip crossing all of the bridges across the River Clyde within Glasgow (except of course for the motorway and railway bridges). Once this has been accomplished, we’ll return back into the city along the Clyde Walkway.
18 miles, with some short lengths on main roads.
Meet 10am Bell’s Bridge, Congress Road, Glasgow.
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 busy roads
Moderate hill climbing.
Please note that rides are subject to alteration/cancellation due to the weather.
