Go Bike, the Strathclyde cycle campaign, have been undertaking cycling and walking tours of each electoral ward with local councillors. At the start of December we joined in with the tour of Ward 13 Garscadden and Scotstounhill.

Two of the four local Councillors for Scotstounhill/Garscadden, Michael Cullen and Chris Cunningham, joined GoBike committee member, Alasdair Macdonald and DRCETs Neil Lovelock for the tour.

The tour started and finished from Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre and covered over 13 km around the ward area. There is some really good cycling infrastructure in the Ward, in particular the traffic section of the National Cycle Network, and further improvements are planned as part of the Knightswood BMX track development.

However, there are also areas where things can be improved and in particular linking these good pieces of infrastructure together is also important.

The Councillors were also given copies of the Cycling UK’s publication Space for Cycling guide for decision makers.

You can see details of the route cycled in the image below and on the Go Bike website. There are also some additional photos and some of the tweets that were sent!
