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.
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.
Yes, this month’s ride will be easy on the legs coming back, with an interesting tour on the way out to Cathkin Braes. Andy, as usual, will be leading the ride and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. See: www.gobike.org/about-us/cycle-rides for further information. We meet at 10:00 just to the east of the north end of Bell’s Bridge.
From Lambhill Stables to the delights of Drumchapel we will be exploring the parks and open spaces of the north and west of the city. Always something to surprise on these rides, see www.gobike.org/about-us/cycle-rides for full details.
Meet 10:00 at the north end of Bell’s Bridge, SEC.
Our first ride of the year is the now-traditional Infrastructure Ride and this year we will be heading east to see the London Road, or East City Way cycle lanes – will it all be as good as we hope? Cumbernauld Road will be included in our travels too – see here for further details and get that bike ready for the ride!
Publishing a little late but hey, it’s school holidays, less traffic on the streets and, apart from that, your Digest author has been otherwise engaged. We have all sorts for you in this issue, so do please read on.
Despite the disgraceful attempts of at least one Renfrewshire Councillor, we can now confirm that the Consultation Events for the much needed cycle lanes from Renfrew Town Centre east to the Glasgow boundary will go ahead tomorrow and Wednesday.
For our first Consultation Digest of 2019, we have the details for the South City Way to reach across the Clyde, the promise of segregated cycle lanes on Byres Road and a great reach out to some news from Helensburgh and Motherwell. Lots, lots more in this mega-issue as desks were cleared for the end of 2018 and Glasgow, certainly, ups its game. Even Pollok Park gets a mention, so do read on.
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.”
