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.

Consultation Digest Issue 22, 20 November 2018: A bumper bundle of new consultations.

 

Good news: Glasgow City Council is looking to reduce traffic on Oswald Street and Union Street (pictured left) in an attempt to cut emissions. Not so good news is that no cycle lanes are proposed but see more detail in item 1.5. Excellent news: consultation is underway on improving walking and cycling on the “Underline”, (see Item 1.3) but bad news is that there is still no word on the status of contraflow for Elmbank Street to allow northbound cycle access to Sauchiehall Street (see Item 3.1 for this). We have lots more for you in this issue so do please read on. Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 22, 20 November 2018: A bumper bundle of new consultations.”
