A weekend cycle for everyone.
A cycle from Gleniffer Braes to Cathkin Braes
This is a cycle of about 50Km. It should take us about 4 hours - depending on stops.
A leisurely pace will take us out to Paisley and Gleniffer Braes. We then head to Neilston, Newton Mearns and Cathkin Braes.
There are some short and challenging climbs on this event.
This is a group cycle and nobody gets left behind.
