Friends of Bears Way are joining the Global Day of Action on 6th November in Glasgow for the 26th Climate Change Conference (COP26). We’re running a Glasgow North West feeder ride from Milgavie to join the march starting at Kelvingrove Park.
It’s our chance to join with the Pedal on Parliament (POP) ‘Wheeling’ bloc in expressing the urgent need for safe and accessible cycling infrastructure to provide low carbon transport alternatives. The POP contingent will be made up of feeder rides from all over Scotland, carrying the message: THIS MACHINE FIGHTS CLIMATE CHANGE.
Anyone is welcome to join us in our ride down to Kelvingrove park. We’ll be a mixed group, moving at a speed that children can cycle at. The route will largely consist of off-road paths but (since they didn’t’ finish the Bears Way) it will consist of short sections on road.
The march itself is from Kelvingrove Park to Glasgow Green. The route goes through the city centre with an expected arrival time to Glasgow Green around 3pm.
Start – Milngavie Train station car park from 10am for 10.15 departure
