Cycling for Summer – Soldiers stand Guard on the Bridge of Weir to Kilmacolm cycle path

Bridge of Weir cyclist and hobby photographer, Alan Gilmour, cycles 50 kilometers every week. On a recent cycle and as part of the LEAP Cycle for Summer, he stopped to take a photograph of a key landmark on the Glasgow to Greenock cycle path.

This artwork has become a landmark for cyclists to the area and Alan has kindly shared this selfie with LEAP. ‘This cycle route is inspiring and well worth a stop to take in this outstanding landmark.’
