Meeting point will be at the Sustrans stall at the festival (the map marker on Eventbrite may not give the exact location of the Sustrans stall so please refer to the map provided once you arrive at the Canal Festival).

We have two rides this year, one leaving at 12pm and another leaving at 12:30pm.

Our cycle rides are led by trained Sustrans volunteers and ride at an easy pace to suit the group and ensure that no one will be left behind.

This rides are run in conjunction with the annual Glasgow Canal Festival, run by the Glasgow Canal Project as part of Scottish Canals, on Saturday 20 July from 10:30am to 6pm on the Forth & Clyde Canal between Speirs Wharf and Applecross Basin.

Route Description
The ride follows National Cycle Network (NCN) Routes 754 & 756 of the Forth & Clyde Canal then heads down through Kelvingrove Park to join up with the cycle path NCN route 75 & 7 along the River Clyde and past the Riverside Museum. We will then join the cycle path at Whiteinch to follow the route to Clydebank. Once in Clydebank we go up on to the cycle path by the side of the Forth & Clyde Canal and head back along the canal to the starting point at the Festival.
