GoBike Ride to Whitelees Windfarm – Sunday 6th May

Join us this Sunday on another monthly ride as Spring is upon us (and all the snow in the picture is likely to be melted although we hesitate to promise that!), up to the beautiful Whitelees Windfarm to the south of the city.

We will leave Glasgow and pass through Rouken Glen Park and Malletsheugh on the way to Whitelees, and will return via Eaglesham, Thorntonhall and Carmunnock. Whilst at the wind farm, we will take a trip around some of the tracks there, which will make this ride unsuitable for skinny tyres. In total, the distance of the round trip will be around 35 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.

Difficulty – 4/5

Ride on paths (cycle paths, paths in parks, etc) / quiet roads (residential streets, country lanes) / rough tracks (farm or forest tracks, unmade paths, etc).

Significant hill climbing with ford en route.

Please note that rides are subject to alteration/cancellation due to the weather.
