Cycling Championships

From 3-13 August 2023, the inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships will be hosted in Glasgow and across Scotland. The single biggest cycling event in history, it brings together 13 existing individual cycling world championships into one event.

SPT is supporting the event by ensuring those living and visiting Glasgow are able to move through the city freely on the public transport options available to them.

Travelling by Bus

Road closures required for the road races of the UCI World Cycling Championships will require bus services to make extensive diversions from their normal routes in and around Glasgow, particularly on the following dates. Friday 4 – Tuesday 8 August inclusive. Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 August inclusive. Customers should check Traveline Scotland or the bus operator website for full details.
