Trying to hold on to the good weather , there are 3 cycle rides this weekend we would recommend.
Saturday 0930 Peoples Palace : our regular Saturday morning run
Sunday 0930 Pollokshaws West Station : Added ride, 40-50 miles to Strathaven
Sunday 1000 GoBike Bells Bridge : Luggie Water Meanderer
Heading out of Glasgow by way of Stepps and Broadwood Loch to explore the countryside outside Kirkintilloch before heading for lunch at The Stables pub. Mostly on country lanes once outside of Glasgow.
Meet 10am Bell’s Bridge, Congress Road, Glasgow. (Please note road closures for Great Scottish Run.)
Please note there is a Go-Bike ride this Sunday – www.gobike.org/about-us/cycle-rides
Bob Downie writes – I am in the mood for something with a few more hills and miles, possibly going out over Whitelee and then Ardochrig with a cafe stop in Strathaven? Perhaps 40-50miles in total and maybe 12-14mph average depending. I would prefer a 9:30am start but please check the website on Saturday night for start time. I suggest a start from SW Community Cycles at Pollokshaws West Station. Anyone interested in joining me? (PS, this is not organised as a CTC ride. Just me trying to get a good ride with good company before the weather breaks)
It would be helpful if anyone who wants to come can let us know on the meet-up site – see link above.
The ride starts from the People’s Palace on Glasgow Green on Saturday mornings at 0930 .
The route goes out the old A8 dual carriageway to Coatbridge and then follows country roads around Glenboig to Muirhead and back on the NCN to Glasgow . Depending on the weather we may extend the route a bit and go for coffee at Condorrat.
Ride time will be around 2 1/2 hours and total distance 24 miles .
