Cycle Steps
The route follows the canal path from Knightswood/Westerton into the city centre as far as the M8. Then you take the quiet side roads to Cowcaddens where there is a bike route which takes you to traffic lights. There you cross over, past landscaping strip and into St James Rd. This leads you into the centre of Strathclyde University and bike parking.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
At Lock 27 you can stop for a meal/pint. Then there are the locks at Maryhill with views across to the Kilpatrick Hills. Crossing over high above Maryhill Rd and the traffic below, soon after you pass a Rennie Mackintosh Church on the right. There are barges and boats at Spiers Wharf and old warehouses converted to flats at the Dundas leg of the journey. Look out for swans, ducks, coots, cormorants and heron all along the route. And lots of people with children and dogs enjoying the space. Beautiful.
