On Sunday 23rd of October the GCCN will gather in “The Glasgow Caring City” warehouse in Govan where attendees will be able to sample the range of cycling services the city has to offer and take part in “Learn to Ride” activities.
On the day there will be a variety of cycling related activities including the Scottish Bike Trials who will be putting on displays throughout the day. Freewheel North will be bringing an assortment of bikes for the public to try out e.g. conference bike, side by side tandem, tricycle tandem, double handcrank, child and adult tricycles, quadricycles – which is all free for the public!
You can also bring your own bike and receive a free Dr Bike safety check: the mechanic’s will check over your bike, tightening up any loose nuts and bolts, and advise you if your bike needs any other parts replaced.
