After a few issues led by other areas, Glasgow strikes back in this edition. A report on the City Network Delivery Plan offers new hope. Also, the former city ‘Cycling Village’ lands with new proposals (phase map shown, above – sadly the event for it has just passed). Elsewhere in the West End, there’s a Glasgow Uni event about its campus coming soon (see below).
Also, there are projects from South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and Renfrewshire plus reports from Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and East Renfrewshire.
Whether you spend this Saturday watching an expensive event taking place in London, walking through Glasgow on the All Under One Banner Independence March or doing whatever takes your fancy, Sunday will be a good time to explore somewhere new on your bike.
Yes, we will be out cycling on Sunday and here’s where Andy will be taking us:
This ride will take us around the South Side, extending as far as Eastwood and Clarkston. The ride will take in Queens Park, Linn Park and Kings Park, and will include a brand new railway bridge. We will end up on the most recently completed section of the South City Way at Victoria Bridge in time for lunch. 15 miles, with a short section on an unsurfaced path.
Quite a regal ride.
Meet on the north bank of the Clyde, just to the east of Bell’s Bridge at 10am.
Greetings for Christmas and the New Year and, for those of you who don’t over-celebrate on Hogmanay or who just wish to get out for a breath of fresh air. See Andy’s intro to his ride for New Year’s Day:
As I write this post, COP27 in Egypt is well into its second week. Last weekend members of GoBike joined with friends from Pedal on Parliament and other organisations to wave banners emblazoned with the ‘This Machine Fights Climate Change’ slogan during a march through the streets of Edinburgh. We were there with thousands of others to take part in the Day of Global Action for Climate Justice.
Major changes are proposed for Cowcaddens Rd/Dobbie’s Loan (visual of Port Dundas Rd, above). Another Avenues project on Pitt St has a Traffic Regulation Order, as does the East City Way on London Rd. It’s last call for St George’s Rd but more from Connecting Woodside in Glasgow’s TROs.
East Renfrewshire’s Local Action Plans close soon but Balgray Connections is open a bit longer. East Dunbartonshire have extended one consultation and started a major one about the Springburn Rd/Kirkintilloch Rd ‘corridor’. Also, good news from Inverclyde.
