Run1 – of the Glasgow Clyde Marathon training.
Hot! Hot! Hot! I decided this lovely, sunny morning to run an 8 mile loop, starting at Bearsden Cross. Following Maryhill Road to the Science Park roundabout, I turned left to the Riding School for Disabled on Caldercuilt Road, where there is a gate that takes you onto the Kelvin River. The first three miles along the river, which is maintained by Glasgow City Council, are delightful, with a good path underfoot. After crossing the road A879 and entering into East Dunbartonshire’s Allander Walkway, the path is extremely narrow, overgrown and close to the waters edge in parts. It opens back up after a mile with scenic views over the rolling hillside. Joining the A81 in Milngavie next to the Football Club, its roughly a mile back to Bearsden Cross.
Last year I wrote to the EDC to ask that they clear some of the pathway within East Dunbartonshire, Allander walkway and I have tweeted them again this year. It would make an excellent loop for walkers, runners and even cyclists as the scenery is simply beautiful. Poor show EDC!
