Despite wet weather a steady stream of visitors of all ages enjoyed Kessington Travel Day in Bearsden recently, organised by East Dunbartonshire Council.

There were market stalls, vintage bicycles and face painting for the wee ones, and the first 50 cyclists who attended received a free active travel goody bag.

In addition, Balmore-based Solid Rock Cycles were there with a ‘Dr Bike’ service - giving people the chance to ensure their bike is in super shape for the summer.

The event was also a chance to find out more about the travel hub, sustainable transport and the A81 Bears Way route corridor improvements.

Work took place on the A81 Milngavie Road at Kessington shops, Bearsden, earlier this year to improve parking at Kessington shops with a two-hour restriction introduced.

The work was also intended to make it easier for people to shift travel modes more easily - for example changing from bus to car or bicycle.
