Re: No longer fashionable to say Hello?

CTC Forum - On the road - 11 August 2015 - 2:44pm
I've always acknowledged other people on country lanes and rural tracks, whether they are cycling or not. I sometimes say "hello", and sometimes just nod and smile in their direction. I do the same with motorists who slow down to let me pass. And (though I can't see why it bothers some people) I tend to wear lycra on the bike. I think lycra clad cyclists are no more or less likely to be friendly that those wearing civvies.

Play on Pedals at Commonwealth Games Anniversary event

Play on Pedals blog - 5 August 2015 - 4:12pm

Last weekend Play on Pedals Instructors delivered two days of drop-in sessions in George Square, as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games anniversary celebrations with Glasgow Life.

Children flocked to the Play on Pedals area and over the weekend our Instructors signed in over 90 children, many of whom left being able to ride pedal bikes. Our Instructors, on the other hand left exhausted and in bed by 7pm!

Anne, one of our Instructors was also interviewed by the on-site radio about Play on Pedals, which was broadcast across the Square.

What a fantastic event, celebrating the legacy of the games and demonstrating the enthusiasm of young Glasgow to get cycling!
