Cycling UK Scotland 2017 Gathering and AGM

Date: 18 November 2017
Location: Renfield St Stephens Centre 260 Bath Street Glasgow
Organised by: Cycling UK Scotland
All Cycling UK members are invited to attend the Cycling UK Scotland Gathering and AGM on Saturday 18 November. Non-members who are interested in joining Cycling UK are also welcome to attend.
The day features a morning cycle ride. There are two on offer – an infrastructure safari and a scenic led ride – to see cycling on offer in the city. The AGM is post bike ride, followed by lunch and an afternoon of presentations and discussion.
The guest speaker will be Journalist and writer Peter Walker,  who is politcal correspondent for The Guardian, and manages the newspaper’s Guardian Bike Blog and wrote the book “Bike Nation: How Cycling Can Save The World”.
There will be a pecha kucha session and would like to invite member and affiliate groups, campaigners, tourers and those with a story to tell to participate. Pecha kucha are short presentations with 20 slides and 20 seconds for each and are a great way to sum up events and activities. If you would like to contribute, please contact claire.connachan@cyclinguk.org and we can give you a slot.
