Cyclists on the look-out for a New Year charity challenge are being urged to cross all 17 bridges over the Clyde from Dalmarnock to Bowling.

The “Ride the Clyde” 35-mile challenge has been organised by Scottish Huntington’s Association (SHA), the only charity in the country supporting families with the degenerative neurological condition Huntington’s disease (HD).

Fundraising manager Dougie Peddie said: “This is a chance to get to see parts of the river that you just don’t normally get the opportunity to visit.

“It is a great family day out and every penny raised will help improve the lives of people living with HD.”

Ride the Clyde takes place on March 31. To take part contact or call 0141 848 0308.
