Lockdown inspiration: Milngavie #postboxcycle

Written by Fiona

I enjoyed a #postboxrun to all the post boxes on the north side of Bearsden, close to my home. So I decided to cycle between the post boxes in neighbouring Milngavie.

How to #postboxcycle

First, locate the post boxes in your local area. This is a useful website. Then plot a route using a platform such as OS Maps.

Once you have a route, you can cycle, walk or run between the post boxes. I made a few adjustments as I was riding between the Milngavie post boxes and the route turned out to be a little longer than I had thought but it was a brilliant way to see new places and discover new streets and green spaces.

I started this ride at the Milngavie precinct next to the Milngavie in Bloom telephone box.

Here is a video of the #postboxcycle in Milngavie.
