On Sunday 9 June, Glasgow city centre will host Ford RideGlasgow FreeCycle – a brand-new cycling event for people of all ages and abilities on four miles of closed roads in the heart of this great city.

It’s free to take part and offers a unique opportunity to cycle on car-free roads around the vibrant and scenic roads of Glasgow's city centre, taking in the rich history and modern charm of this dynamic urban landscape.

The event, held between 10:00 and 16:00, builds on Glasgow City Council’s commitment to create a bike-friendly city and Glasgow Life’s activities aimed at supporting people of all ages to enjoy the many benefits of cycling. The event will also build on the legacy of last year’s spectacular UCI World Championships, which attracted more than 500,000 spectators.
