ECC leaderboard 2017This May was Team We Go Pedal’s second attempt at the European Cycle Challenge and we’re pleased to report that we smashed our 2016 total.  This year we recruited 15 victims participants and during May Team We Go Pedal have cycled a grand total of 1838.6 km putting us in 6th place amongst the 80 Glasgow sub-teams, and 3rd place in the Other category.

52 cities took part in the event and altogether logged a whopping 4,650,554 km with İzmir Büyükşehir Belediyesi, the third biggest city in Turkey (yes, I had to look it up) coming first with 855,002 km. Glasgow came 18th with a total of 59,613 km cycled.

Gdańsk was still the best overall cycling city with 1800.1 km cycled per 1000 inhabitants.  Glasgow came in at 27th in that leaderboard with 100.2km per 1000 inhabitants, slightly down on last year’s figure of 121 km/inh.

A big shout out to our volunteers who contributed most of our mileage. Mikey cycled 356.4 km and Davy cycled 252.1 km within the boundaries allowed by the challenge; however over the month, Davy cycled 625.2 km which put him in 20th place on the Glasgow leaderboard.  Congratulations (and a tub of chamois cream) to both of them, but a big thanks to everyone who added some mileage to our team.

New bike racks have been installed at Knightswood Community Centre on Alderman Road. The racks are a welcome addition to the Centre and will make it easier for centre users who cycle to make full use of the facilities.

We have been working with the Community Centre and Glasgow City Council to get the racks installed as part of our Cycle Friendly Communities project.

The Community Centre, which is now run by the community through the Knightswood Community SCIO, offers a range of services and activities and also has a Cafe open 6 days a week.

Thanks to the team at Glasgow City Council for installing the racks.

So take a minute and sign the petition now!

St Paul’s Cycle Friendly Primary award

St Paul’s Primary School in Whiteinch has recently achieved the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Primary School Award by demonstrating a clear commitment to increasing cycling in the school for pupils, teachers and parents.

The school was assessed against a range of criteria – the school has a cycling champion, an up to date active travel plan, delivers Bikeability Scotland’s Level 2 on road training to the pupils, pupils undertake regular litter picks on the local cycle network and the school has a great cycle shelter too! All clearly demonstrating that they fully deserved this Award.

The school also promotes cycling in the local community by working with De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop and being in involved in the We Go Pedal project to promote and encourage more people to cycle, both of which are run by local environmental charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET).
