Cycle to Work Day

Archi Velo are pleased to be working with architectural practice, Sheppard Robson, and Clyde Gateway - Scotland's biggest regeneration programme - to celebrate 'Cycle to Work Day' (15 August) with a briefing on Glasgow's cycling ambitions, followed by a guided cycle tour of the Clyde Gateway regeneration area.

Entitled The Cycle Friendly City: Punctured Dream or Two Wheeled Revolution? this breakfast briefing, taking place at WEST on The Green, will see Neil Webster of Remit Consulting presenting his BCO research on rise of cycling and its impact on office design: The Market Cycles.

This will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Clyde Gateway's Martin McKay (alongside Sustrans' Daisy Narayanan and Sheppard Robson's Michael Dougall).

The breakfast briefing will be followed by a guided cycle tour around the Clyde Gateway regeneration area, led by CamGlen Bike Town.

The event is an opportunity to review our cycling ambitions, both nationally and locally.  It will look at how strategies to increase cycling levels in our cities can be incorporated into the property sector's ambitions to create greener, more sustainable and healthier cities.

Michael Dougall of Sheppard Robson commented: "With National Cycle to Work Day we saw a real opportunity to review and debate current strategies within both the public sector and the commercial property sector for encouraging cycling and therefore creating healthier and greener communities. This event will look at whether these strategies are working and consider solutions for creating more sustainable cities."

The breakfast briefing and guided cycle takes place at WEST on the Green, Templeton Building, Glasgow Green, on 15 August, 8am. The event is free and breakfast will be served. Guests are asked to bring their own bicycles for the guided tour.

If you would like to attend please RSVP to lisa@skylarkpublicrelations.com / 07825 225 414. Guests are welcome to attend the briefing; cycle or both.

Island Expeditions with SEDA

  • Rothesay, Scotland, PA20 9AQ United Kingdom (map)

Self guided, cycling and walking tours of the Isle of Bute with a variety of routes to suit different abilities. 

In 2016 the Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA) produced a series of maps entitled 'Urban Expeditions' which guided participants around ecological buildings and interventions. To compliment these maps SEDA are preparing an Island Expedition series starting with Bute. 

To launch the map Archi Velo have been working with SEDA and the Bute Alliance to  organise a cycling event on the 30th September 2017 when we will meet at 11:00 am under the Cabbie's Rest at Rothesay Harbour. Maps and light refreshments will be made available after which everybody will then be free to enjoy on the routes dependant on their ability. 

The event is on public roads and cycle tracks so participants must exercise sound, mature judgement and be responsible for their own and others safety. It is your responsibility to carry out manoeuvres safely and adhere to the rules of the road. The event includes sections of A roads and we would recommend that you wear a helmet. Under 18's must be accompanied with a parent or guardian. Participants require to bring all their own equipment, pay for their own travel to Rothesay, refreshments will not include lunch.
