Clyde built.


Todays ride (9.43am to 10.50am) was wet, but not too bad and seemed to be devilled by a perma-headwind. In addition, my legs felt like lead for 20 minutes. But, it showed me another hidden nook of Glasgow. I followed the Clyde out towards Cambuslang. The Clyde is the river Glasgow was built around. Ship building made Glasgow what it is today, and the river was the conduit and the life blood of the city. So many signs of a now forgotten era still exist, from old, dilapidated buildings, to signs, rail links and collapsed bridges. A fine ride.
