A weekend cycle for everyone.
This is a cycle of 64Km on bike friendly roads and paths. It should take us less than 4 hours - depending on stops.
A leisurely pace will take us from Glasgow green along the Clyde walkway to the Erskine bridge. From there we head to Bishopton and on to Kilmacolm. A very good cycle path leads back to Glasgow.
The route is shown on the link below.
