Get around with Glasgow NextBike

By CGordon 07 Jul 2020

A great way to get around Glasgow is using the NextBikes, 650 of which can be found at stands across the city. 


Students and staff members at UofG get a free annual membership, plus 60 minutes free each rental! For more information and how to register you can visit the UofG website.

Cycle routes and parks 

There are great cycle routes in and around Glasgow, as well as beautiful parks to explore. 

The People Make Glasgow website has route suggestions, as does Glasgow City Council and Visit Scotland. There are also routes on apps like Strava and MapMyRide.

Stay safe while cycling

It's important to stay safe when cycling. If you haven't been in the saddle for a while, take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with NextBike's Safe Cycling Guide.

NextBike have increased their cleaning regimes to reduce virus transmission, however, cyclists are recommended to wear gloves/wash hands/use hand sanitiser before and after using the bicycle. Here is their guide to using NextBikes during the covid-19 pandemic.

We'll see you on the road!
