New Clyde Tunnel Entrance and Exit

I've used the Clyde Tunnel since I started cycle commuting over 3 years ago. In that time I've only once felt threatened (neds with sticks). Even then, they didn't bother with me. However, I can understand the perception that the tunnel is dangerous or scary. Thus a lot of people don't use what could be a convenient shortcut.

To try and address this issue, the council have installed a new entrance and exit system in the southbound tunnel, and have plans to extend the system to the other tunnel, finance permitting.

So what do you think?

I plan to send this link to Glasgow City Council, so air your views of this new system here. I have my own views but I don't want to bias anything.

I will of course remove any abusive etc posts.

I've been asked on a number of occasions to put a video up of my whole commute (minus a little bit at the start and end). So I've finally go around to it.

Here it is. A randomly chosen, typical commute, where nothing much happens. An enjoyable ride to work.

It's sped up to fit youtube and to spice it up (whooo hooo!) I added some appropriate music, selected from the youtube music library.


If that is the right word!
