Our annual Cycling Infra Day is on Friday the 16th of October. We ask you to look in your local area or regular cycle route and photograph examples of infrastructure which are great, not so good, or what definitely needs improvement.
It’s fair to say 2020 has been a tough but interesting year for cycling. We want to have a look back at our how our infrastructure has changed over the past year, and also see how the new pop-ups under the Spaces For People funding are working out for the people using them.
So, when on your bike on 16th (or whenever), as part of your commute, fresh air, or just popping down the shops, take some photographs of those pieces of infrastructure that you pass.
Then pop over to Twitter and share it with some witty bants, why it’s good, okay, needs improving, etc. Remember to add the location and don’t forget the important hashtag #GlasgowCycleInfraDay20 and tag @CycleInFraDay or @GoBikeGlasgow!
If you want to get a little more involved have a look over our Streets For All Glasgow joint project with Glasgow Eco Trust and OnBikes with our CommonPlace map where you can drop a pin and give feedback about our city’s streets, this helps us gather evidence to ask for changes on our streets. The map can be found here: https://streetsforallglasgow.commonplace.is
Remember, this is supposed to be a fun and easy way to document a day of getting around our streets by bike. So please be sensible, no mad dashes across busy streets to get that ‘action shot’, and with Covid-19 still a big part of our lives please remember to social distance and only go out if you are well!
If you haven’t, follow our Twitter and our InfraDay account too to keep up with the fun and experience, we will happily accept photos from other days due to the current situation. If you don’t use Twitter, you can always send us message on Facebook or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We can’t wait to see what you have to show us!
Have fun, see you all on streets on the 16th October! 😀
