GoBike ride 07 August – our route

Here’s the up and downy route that Andy took us on last Sunday. The ride started, as per usual, at the north end of Bell’s Bridge and we cycled out via Bellahouston Park and Mosspark, skirted Neilston and arrived at Gleniffer Braes from where we had a superb view of the Clyde Valley to the west of the city, a good place for our break.

GoBike ride Sunday 05 June, 25 miles, around and about East Kilbride

Side-by-side crossing at Brouster Hill, East Kilbride


We will head off through Cathcart and Linn Park, and head out through Carmunnock to get to the outskirts of East Kilbride (avoiding trunk roads such as the A726). We’ll take a little time to explore the K-Woodlands, before joining a cycle route into the town centre to see the new cycle infrastructure there. After continuing across town, we will return to Glasgow, descending through Castlemilk and King’s Park, where we might just see Aitkenhead House, shown in the photo, just in time for lunch.

Aitkenhead House, King's Park

Due to road and path closures, there will be a couple of short sections of the ride that will be on main roads.

25 miles, including some off-road paths and steps in the K-Woodlands.
Meet 10am north end of Bell’s Bridge, Congress Road, Glasgow.
