During the late spring and summer months we're planning a series of eight evening rides in conjunction with Out Velo - a recently launched national LGBTQ+ road cycling club. These will start in Glasgow and cover all points of the compass. Distances will typically be around 30 miles and should take around 2.5 - 3 hours. There will be a maximum of twelve participants on each ride with six spaces allocated to each of ODL and Out Velo.

For the first of these rides we will head north-west, initially following a section of the Forth and Clyde Canal towpath to the Blairdardie Locks before skirting the edge of Garscadden Wood, roughly following the course of the Antonine Wall through Hardgate, Duntocher and Old Kilpatrick to Bowling. Our return route will take us along the excellent well surfaced Sustrans cycle route, including the recently upgraded section across the Bowling swing bridge.

The rides will be run in accordance with ODL's policies and procedures and covered by ODL's insurance (through Cycling UK).
