Glasgow’s ambition is to become Scotland’s most bike friendly city.
The climate is similar to most northern European towns and cities, the people are friendly and the architecture stunning.
Built on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow has seen a huge growth in its citizen’s love of cycling, with many who live and work in the city travelling by bike.
The city has a focus in promoting healthy and sustainable forms of transport such as cycling. Getting around by bike in Glasgow is easy.
There is a cycle hire scheme, run by Next Bike, with 43 stations and 420 hire bikes located at transport hubs, major tourist attractions, as well as cultural and educational centres across the city.
The types of cycle route provision is varied and includes: segregated cycle ways, on road facilities designated via lining, signed routes on quiet roads or through its parks and shared surfaces provided for pedestrians and cyclists.
Whatever your reason to come to Glasgow, you’ll enjoy it even more getting around by bike.
