Glasgow's Strategic Plan for Cycling

Welcome to Glasgow City Council's cycling pages.

Glasgow's cycling infrastructure is improving every year. Currently we have just over 301 km of cycle lanes of various types including segregated, shared and marked/signed on street. Additionally we have surpassed our installation of cycle racks of 100 per year each year since 2007.

We have a strategic approach to improving the overall network. However, should there be areas where relatively minor improvements would help facilitate your journey, whether through installation of dropped kerbs or additional cycle parking, then contact us via the email address provided

Glasgow's "City Ways" are those cycle routes that radiate from the city centre. They are key routes that have business, cultural, educational and residential destinations along and in close proximity to them. They are characterised by constructed features such as segregated cycle lanes and links into the wider cycle network, providing greater cycle access to all aspects of our city.

Cycle Lane Segregation Trial - Aikenhead Road

Glasgow City Council is carrying out a trial to explore different ways of delivering segregated cycle lanes. This is taking place on Aikenhead Road, Govanhill and will be in place for a year.
 In order to inform the future direction of the cycle network in Glasgow, We would like to gather your views and opinions about the different types of segregation methods we are trialling. Full details in the Projects section.
