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.

Quick trips to the seaside, countryside and updates from around the city.
In this Digest there are two projects by housing associations to improve active travel connections. The South Lanarkshire, (Y)our Districts and Woodside consultations are each from a wider ongoing series of events but could play a big part in shaping the areas they cover. Lastly there’s a follow-up about East Renfrewshire and a few newsletters.
If you’re in the city, see Andy’s three infrastructure routes around Glasgow to take in new Spaces for People infrastructure. He’s also started to inform GoBike about closures and diversions; if you hear of any please do let us know.

News just in from our members who are also Sustrans volunteers. Emergency works to repair a fault in cabling which is linked to the local hospital power supply have started today between Portpatrick Road and Bowling on the Forth and Clyde Canal and are expected to close the canal side cycle route for a week.
If you were thinking of heading that way over the weekend or next week a new route will be needed. There is no indication of an alternative diversionary route on the information we have – sorry.
Another selection of items for you, but please do respond to the OnBikes survey and, if you are a tenement resident, let’s get some bike storage, see Item 1.5. Also, don’t forget the language survey in 1.4. Lots to keep you busy but do read on for even more.

Lots and lots of requests for your views in this issue but, before you get your fingers tapping on that keyboard scoot to our very last item for details of how Glasgow got its first community-led pop-up bike lane – a good news story to start and end with.

The Digest hits 60, so is it time to use the bus pass? No, certainly not; let’s keep cycling and we are now joined by so many others, it’s a delight.

GoBike members and supporters will be very aware of the proposals for the South City Way to extend to Battlefield. Consultation events and proposals last year were well reported in our Digests and GoBike was involved in the consultation process with Sustrans and the City Council. However, it seems that residents on nearby Queen’s Drive claim to have been unaware that changes were afoot! Read on for a reprint of today’s article in the Glasgow Times by Catriona Stewart:
