Starting point

G77 6JW

Giro di Gabroc Hill - the route actually looks a little bit like a map of Italy (we think!) in honour of the Giro d'Italia taking place in May.

Trying to stick to country roads and b-roads this route leaves Newton Mearns and heads to Neilston. From there we go over Gabroc Hill towards Stewarton. We will head back to town before cutting right and over Bonnyton Hill to Eaglesham and back to Newton Mearns

All on A and B roads. This is a route with a lot of climbing - with some steep ascents.

1. Clearly we need to ride in line with the Scottish Government's guidance on COVID-19 at all times. Please do not leave your home to undertake exercise or outdoor activity if Scottish Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has or has had symptoms of COVID-19.

2. Physical distancing between the leader and participants must be maintained, where possible.

3. Please also make sure before taking part that your bike is mechanically sound and bring your own food and drink, inner tubes, gloves, face coverings and hand sanitiser to help assist with social distancing and preventing unnecessary contact.

4. Please practice good respiratory hygiene during the activity (i.e.coughing, sneezing into a tissue or the crook of an elbow)
