Not one, but two rides for you this weekend; the first is a feeder ride for the COP26 demonstration on Saturday, see yesterday’s blog for details and the second is our regular first Sunday in the month GoBike ride. It has 2 themes: the COP Dire Visions and new infrastructure in Bowling, the Bowline railway arches rehabilitation.Continue reading “Cycle with GoBike this weekend, 6 and 7 November!”
Consultation Digest (National) Issue 8, 29 October 2021: The one before COP26
There are no official consultations of relevance at present so this digest is different to usual. Instead this month there’s information on how you can raise your voice for the climate and cycling during COP26, and a look at the new Cycling by Design guidance.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (National) Issue 8, 29 October 2021: The one before COP26”

Locked in discussion?
Cycle parking is one of the topics in this Digest – the bike park inside Cadogan Square multi-storey car park (pictured, above) says something about the state of current facilities. Also, it contrasts with some of the points in Glasgow’s latest consultations; including about where cycling really sits in the transport hierarchy.
As shared paths are blocked around that big climate conference, there are question marks about whether the message on sustainable transport will get through. Drafts of two major strategies could set the tone for Glasgow in the next decade – both the Active Travel Strategy and Transport Strategy just happen to be out for consultation during COP26.
There are seven consultations for neighbouring areas but Glasgow will be hogging the headlines for the next few weeks. GoBike is running a ‘feeder ride’ from Lanarkshire in to the main climate demo on Sat 6 November. See other rides from around the city and beyond on Pedal on Parliament’s COP26 feeder rides page.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 98, 28 October 2021”

Easier to Digest?
You’ll notice some changes to this Digest to make it quicker to read (and for your author to produce). This has been dictated by circumstances (lack of holiday cover). However, it will act as a pilot and some aspects may be retained longer term.
This slimmed down version of the Digest is based loosely on a ‘listings’ directory and removes the (usually empty) ‘Forthcoming consultations’ section. In future, if anything is forthcoming it will be mentioned in this intro, as follows.
Forthcoming consultations: Liveable Neighbourhoods pilot areas – consultation expected within the next month or so.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 95, 16 September 2021”

Consultations baton change.
As the 2020 Paralympics take place in Tokyo, how is Glasgow looking towards its own global event: COP26? Currently, the city council has a new, short notice consultation about suspending public access rights. You may have seen GoBike banners on the subject or media coverage of support from Scotland’s new Active Travel minister – Green MSP, Patrick Harvie. It’s also a last call for the survey on Glasgow’s Low Emission Zone.
It’s a final fling for a handful of consultations around Glasgow (and one in Renfrewshire). There’s a bit longer for a few others – a new survey on secure cycle parking in the city centre and the last leg of East Dunbartonshire’s Active Travel Discussion.Continue reading “Consultation Digest (Local) Issue 94, 31 August 2021”
