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.

Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. The 2017 event will take place from Saturday 10 through to Sunday 18 June.

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. For more information check out the Bike Week website.

 

As part of our We Go Pedal Cycle Friendly Communities project we will be holding more bike breakfasts. The first will be on Thursday 11 May at Balshagray Crescent in Whiteinch from 7.30am to 9.30am!

The Get Glasgow Moving Campaign are holding a local election hustings event from 7-9pm on Wednesday 26 April at Renfield St Stephen’s Centre, 260 Bath St, Glasgow G2 4JP.

They are also asking people to sign their petition calling on the Council and other key stakeholders to deliver a world-class, fully-integrated & accessible, publicly-owned, public transport network for everyone in our city.

“Investing in public transport is essential for expanding our city’s economy, addressing inequality and social isolation, reducing toxic levels of air pollution and tackling climate change.”

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).

The European Cycling Challenge 2017 is the biggest cycling event across Europe. The idea is to encourage people to use their bikes as much as possible. It’s about everyday cycling for everyone.

ALL cycling is permitted with the exception of sporting and training events. Whether you are cycling all the way to work, to the station, going to the shops or just enjoying being out on your bike, we want you to take part and record your routes to help improve cycling across the Clyde Valley.

Last year, 52 cities, including Glasgow, joined the Challenge. Over 46,000 people cycled four million kilometres (4,000,000 km) during the month of May. Glasgow finished a respectable 18th with 72,000km recorded with the Glasgow boundary but recorded over 127,750 km in total.

Once again the We Go Pedal team will be pedalling for victory. Last year the We Go Pedal team, which was part of Team Glasgow, had 11 members and thanks to our combined efforts we cycled a total of 1268 kms and we came 14th out of all 74 sub-teams that made up Team Glasgow! So we need more people to sign up to the team!

To join Team We Go Pedal you need to:

  • Download the naviki app
  • Go to Settings > Contests > ECC2017
  • Click the button “I’m Participating” to opt in
  • Click on My Teams, Select “Glasgow City Region”
