Scotland’s largest bike share scheme has re-launched with 500 brand new nextbike SmartBikes and 10 new hire stations.

Over the coming months nextbike Glasgow will also increase the number of bikes to 1,000, and add around 10 new stations per year.

Today, cycling in Glasgow got a wee tad much better!

And did you know that if you’re a student or a member of staff at University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, or Glasgow Caledonian University you can get a special deal on a nextbike?

*** POSTPONED ***

This event has been postponed. A new Autumn date will be announced soon.

 

Are you affected by the school run at your school? Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels are hosting a half-day School Run Summit on the morning of Wednesday 20 September at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street, Glasgow G14 0BL

The event will bring together a wide range of people and organisations from the G13 and G14 postcode areas to share knowledge and experience of the school run. This will include pupils, teachers, parents, parent councils, local residents, community councils, Council officers, elected members and other interested parties.

The event will look at the wider community to see if this provides opportunities for alternative solutions to the school run issue such as:

  • How can we work more closely across the community to address the school run?
  • How can the school run help improve pupil attendance and attainment?
  • How can we better promote school initiatives to tackle the school run?
  • How can we increase active travel and reduce cars and vans on the school run?

This event is free to attend but booking is required! You can book online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/drcet-school-run-summit

For more info please contact DRCET on 0141 433 0427 or email liz@dumbartonroad.com

Do you cycle in Glasgow? Do you care about the future of our cycling infrastructure? Then GlasgowCycleInfraDay is for you.

The campaign is returning to the city on Friday 8 September and with your help we can make this year even more successful.

The idea is a simple one: use Twitter to record “a day in the life of Glasgow’s cycle lanes”.  A look at the good, the bad and the simply absent cycling infrastructure over 24 hours. On Twiiter you can follow @CycleInfraDay or use the hashtag #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Getting involved is even simpler still. Just grab your camera and if you see any cycling infrastructure you think is worth recording just take a photo and Tweet it with this year’s hashtag – #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 – Say where it is and why you’re including it, and you’re done.

Not going to be cycling on Friday 8 September?  That’s okay – you don’t have to be on a bike to take part, you only need to be in and around Glasgow.

The Hands Up Scotland Survey looks at how pupils across Scotland travel to school and is the largest national dataset on school travel.  The 2017 survey will take place from Monday 11 until Friday 15 September with schools selecting one day to carry out the survey.

Each September, schools across Scotland complete the survey in class by asking their pupils ‘How do you normally travel to school?’. Local authority officers distribute the survey to schools and return pupil responses to Sustrans for collation, analysis and reporting.

The results provide a valuable annual snapshot of school travel and are used by Sustrans, Transport Scotland and other groups to inform policy areas, monitor trends in school travel over time, and provide information relevant to a variety of health, transport and education initiatives.

For more information about the Hands Up Scotland survey please visit the Sustrans website where you can also download all the information for the 2017 survey. You can see the headline results from 2016 below.

A series of public events will be taking place in August to share different options to balance pedestrians, cyclists, buses and traffic — and to make Byres Road a better place for everybody. Everybody is welcome – input is needed from as many people as possible to guide the right solution.
