South West Community Cycles
South West Community Cycles aims to make positive contribution to the local area through the provision of affordable bike-related activities.
About South West Community Cycles
We have adopted Pollokshaws West Railway Station, Glasgow's oldest surviving station, and we aim to improve the local and greater community through cycling.
Pollokshaws West Railway Station was completely refurbished in 2013, transforming two disused Category B Listed buildings into new facilities for South West Community Cycles. The project was supported by First Scotrail through its “Adopt-a-Station” initiative and by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust, and has resulted in the creation of a flagship Cycle Resource Centre.
The station was built circa 1847 for the Glasgow Barrhead and Neilston Railway and is now the oldest surviving railway station in Glasgow. Richard Shorter Architect worked to conserve the existing fabric, and used old photographs to reinstate windows, doors and other features to closely match the original fittings. The use of timber panelling throughout the buildings lends a modern interpretation to traditional station architecture, and the buildings have been thermally upgraded to meet current standards.
South West Community Cycles aims to help relieve poverty, improve the health and education of local people and protect the local environment through the provision of affordable bike-related services and activities. The centre, which will allow SWCC to expand its activities, will provide free bike repairs to children, low-cost bike hire and sales, training, events and includes a coffee shop.
