Glasgow Social Rides: Tour of South West City Way and Parks

October 04, 2019 - 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Sustrans on a free guided leisurely cycle tour in Glasgow of the South West City Way and parks, led by trained ride leaders.

The route will take you across the Tradeston Bridge and then down the South West City Way towards Maxwell Park and then to Pollok Park. At Pollok Park, we will have a break at Pollok House and then ride National Cycle Network Route 7/75 back to Bell’s Bridge and then along the Clyde to Tradeston Bridge.

We will meet on the north side of the Tradeston Bridge, by the NextBike stop and National Cycle Network milepost.

You will need to bring your own bike and make sure it is in a good working condition (or one from a hire bike scheme like NextBike – see more below)

The ride will be at a leisurely pace in order to accommodate all riders

The ride is led and supervised by qualified Sustrans cycle ride leaders at all times

There will be a comfort break at roughly the halfway point.
