IN Pictures — Car-Free Day On Kelvin Way

GLASGOW’S first ever World Car Free Day event was held on Kelvin Way.

Traffic was banned from the road beside Kelvingrove Park all day on Saturday with fun activities taking the place of vehicles.

The event was organised by Bike for Good, Car Free Glasgow, Free Wheel North and Go Bike, with assistance from Glasgow City Council approving the road closure.

One member of the public who enjoyed the day, Lynne Coia, wrote on Go Bike’s Facebook page: “It was fantastic to see one of our loveliest areas being car-free with children cycling safely.”

Activities included a bike skills course, outdoor play, free tea from West End tea house Tchai-Ovna, storytelling, pedal-powered music, a climbing wall and street theatre.
