Pedal for Scotland returns for its 19th year on Sunday 9 September 2018. Pedal for Scotland’s main event day will feature the 45 mile Classic Challenge from Glasgow to Edinburgh and the colossal 100 mile Big Belter from Glasgow to Edinburgh, which shares the first 25 miles with the Classic Challenge route. There is also a 10 mile Wee Jaunt from Linlithgow to Edinburgh!

Pedal for Scotland, organised by Cycling Scotland, is Scotland’s biggest bike event. Back in 1999, the first event attracted 400 riders. The event has grown increasingly popular with more routes, bigger challenges and more and more participants joining in year on year.

The HSBC UK Let’s Ride street festival for anyone on a bike is coming to the streets of Glasgow on Sunday 26 August.

The roads will be closed to traffic and open to people and there will be music, food and drink, fun and games, demos, giveaways, activities, challenges, face painting – it’s all happening.

It’s free to enter, you get to see your city in a different way and it’s a fun, active, family-friendly day out. You don’t have to go the 5k distance – just as much or as little as you want. And you don’t need to be an experienced cyclist – there are no cars on the road, you can wobble, zig-zag and stop as much as you like.

You just need to be up for some fun. Everyone’s invited – see you there!

You are invited to come along and try all the clubs FOR FREE! Heart of Scotstoun are encouraging families to come along and try something new such as one of our many fantastic clubs!

The clubs will be giving you and your family/friends the opportunity to try their classes FOR FREE!!! During this time you are also welcomed to meet our board and team who cannot wait to tell you our visions and goals for the year ahead!

The Glasgow Connectivity Commission recently published an interim report of initial findings in which it stated “a significant rewiring of Glasgow’s transport system is required if the city is to keep pace with other leading European destinations and compete for skills and investment.

Chaired by leading transport academic Professor David Begg, the Commission has been looking at measures to support inclusive economic growth by enabling more people to live, work and visit the city region.

It was established by Council Leader Susan Aitken at last year’s State of the City Economy conference and is due to present its policy recommendations this November.

The commission has heard evidence that comparable cities which had created people-friendly environments, reduced pollution and congestion and developed high quality public transport networks were best placed to attract inward investment and highly skilled workers.
