GoBike member, Bob Downie, is very concerned, as are many of us, that the main cycle route by the River Clyde through Glasgow Green is closed during events. He has had a petition approved by Glasgow City Council, which he hopes will reverse this. To quote Bob:
“National Cycle Route 75 (NCR75) where it passes by Glasgow Green is both the busiest and arguably the most pleasant off-road cycle route in Glasgow. However, due to the staging of large events in The Green it can be shut for days on end with poor or negligible diversion signage causing great inconvenience to cyclists.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can have events in the Green without closure of NCR75
If you are a Glasgow resident, please sign this petition to end closure.”
Here’s the link to the petition: https://www.glasgowconsult.co.uk/KMS/dmart.aspx?strTab=PublicPetitions&noip=1&PageType=item&DMartId=58
Let’s do all we can to keep this busy commuting (and leisure) route open.
