The Legacy Shuffle

The Autumn nights are drawing in, and it now seems far away from the Commonwealth Games excitement of late July and early August, which saw over 1.1 million passenger journeys on Scotrail heading into Glasgow. But the modern version of sporting events such as these insist on Legacy. Today, a poster spotted in Queen St is exhorting commuters to sign up to Glasgow Club, the city council’s sport centres, using the Games as its hook.

But for Central Belt Shuffler, this is probably my favourite legacy: chalked encouragement to Scottish cyclist David Millar, on the way out of Kelvingrove Park in the men’s road race route. It was an epic race, with only 12 out of the start list of 140 reaching the finish line.

A little incentive for the commuter-cyclist on the final push upwards and homewards.
