Join us on Sunday when we will head out of Glasgow along the Loch Lomond Railway Path, but only as far as Dumbarton. After the lunch stop at the café in the park there will be a tour around the Dumbarton area to see some of the local attractions, including views up and down the River Clyde, looking over towards the castle, and passing by Strathleven House, before rejoining the cycle route to return to Glasgow.Continue reading “Sunday 06 August: GoBike cycle to Dumbarton”
Waiting for the flag to drop.....
It’s less than a week until the UCI World Championships take place around Glasgow/Scotland. It’s the first combined event including every cycling discipline and should bring thousands of fans to the city. The UCI’s world champion colours are all over the city centre, including on stripey Cyclehangars. The City Council is using the spotlight to consult on a cycle sports strategy. Hopefully there’s more of a legacy for urban sports like BMX from this championship than there was from the Commonwealth Games.
This Digest also has two consultations from South Lanarkshire, one from South Ayrshire, a quick one from East Dunbartonshire and a long Framework from Glasgow.

Summer is here and this is the first GoBike National Consultation Digest for some months – due to both illness, on my part, and a lack of relevant Government consultations to point your way through the spring. But as holidays and Parliamentary recess draws near there is a flurry of important documents to look at and respond to.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (National) Issue 16, 23 June 2023: Local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods.”
Bright sun and dark shadows.
As we move into summer holiday time (and Pride month) some new consultations are coming out. The biggest in this issue is the final section of Glasgow’s Avenues Plus project – Duke St and John Knox St. Also, another look at plans for Bishopbriggs town centre. Elsewhere it’s North Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire and Loch Lomond.
Sadly May ended with news of a serious collision on Fielden St, Glasgow with a car driver reportedly hitting a cyclist. Tragically, John Morton died in hospital from his injuries on 4 June. GoBike would like to offer sincere condolences to John’s family and friends.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 137, 15 June 2023”
