As the Queens Baton of the Commonwealth Games makes its journey from Glasgow to the Gold Coast in Australia for the 2018 games, organisers have scheduled in a few stops along the way to pay homage to the Glasgow games’ legacy.
On Tuesday 22nd August Bike Town were invited to accompany Team Scotland cyclist Rab Wardell for a part of the Queens Baton Relay. Organised as a Guided Ride we invited local cyclists to join us along a route through the soon to be opened Cuningar Loop – a new woodland park that was built as part of the Commonwealth Legacy development.
Cyclists joining us as part of the Guided Ride could meet at the Cycle Hub or at the entrance to the park. After a leisurely ride cycling past the various attractions in the park including picnic area, play park and woodland outdoor classroom it was time to hand over the Baton to another Team Scotland cyclist – Louise Haston. Louise would proceed with the Baton to the Emirates Arena and where it would finish this leg of the journey.
Local residents and participants were then invited for a community BBQ at the Legacy Hub in Dalmarnock.
