GLASGOW CYCLE TIME TRIAL 2018.
Transport Disruption information from Stirling Council
On Wednesday 8 August, there are two cycle time trials – the women’s race in the morning and the men’s race in the afternoon. The women’s route doesn’t enter the Stirling Council area but the men’s race, in the afternoon, carries on up the A81 and into the Stirling Council area as far as Strathblane and then turns right onto the A891 in the direction of Lennoxtown.
Closure of the A81 north of Milngavie will start around 09:00 and will be lifted from around 17:00 onwards.
The timing of the closure has huge implications for public transport. During the closure, buses operating between Balfron and Milngavie will have to divert via the B834, A809, B8050 and B8030, missing out the south end of Killearn and the villages of Blanefield and Strathblane. To maintain a service to these communities, Stirling Council is providing a shuttle service conveying passengers between Strathblane, Blanefield and Killearn, to connect there with the diverted service buses.
Buses will terminate at Milngavie Station. Passengers to and from Glasgow will have to change to and from trains at Milngavie Station, as roads between there and Glasgow are closed for a much longer period.
