A giant crowd of bike fans enjoyed high-speed racing thrills at the weekend when the world’s only pop-up track-racing event came to Paisley town centre.

StreetVelodrome was making a return to the town after a successful debut last year, with Saturday’s event the first of several on a summer-long UK tour.

The day saw amateur riders sign up to race against the clock during a series of qualifiers, with the best going into the final to compete alongside professionals including John Paul, who represented Team Scotland at Glasgow 2014. More....

The Bowfield 10k, held to raise funds for St Vincent's Hospice, was held on Sunday, 31st May.

HISTORY

IMG_3998w1

Paisley is the largest town in Scotland. The town  has a rich history; from it’s 12th century Cluniac Abbey, it’s world famous Paisley Pattern Shawls, and its position at the forefront of the Thread Industry all of which brought great wealth and prosperity to the Town, enabling it to build it’s inspiring Town Hall, Museum and Art Gallery, Observatory, Schools and numerous fine Churches.

Paisley is surrounded by many historical towns and villages and is also ideally situated as a gateway to the Highlands and Islands, with Loch Lomond only 20 minutes away and Edinburgh a mere 45 minutes, and with the airport within 2 miles of the centre of Paisley, it really is the ideal base for visitors from near and far.
