Sunday 2 September – Palacerigg Country Park and so much more!
The route of this ride will take us out to Palacerigg Country Park via Hogganfield Park and Luggiebank on the edge of Cumbernauld. On the return journey, we will head south through Plains to use the new M8 motorway cycle path between Eurocentral and Baillieston, before heading into Glasgow potentially along London Road. There will also be some unsurfaced country paths along the way. Around 40 miles.
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)
Moderate hill climbing.
Please note that rides are subject to alteration/cancellation due to the weather.
