The Yorkhill Easter Egg Run

I’ve lived in Glasgow for many years, but the Yorkhill Easter Egg Run is something I still love to watch (it gives me goosebumps :-)) Where else can you see a convoy of motor bikes, with riders and bikes all dressed up (bunny ears aplenty!) riding through the streets? If you stand at the side of the road watching it takes a good 15 minutes for them all to go by. Starting at the SECC, the run ends at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital. This video is from the 2011 run.

 

 

2015 is the 36th year the run has taken place and you can find out more about its history here. Although it’s called the Easter Egg Run, bikers are now asked to get sponsorship, raising money for the Yorkhill Children’s Charity, who do amazing work at the hospital.

If you want to see the bikes go past, they start at 11 and here’s this year’s route:

SECC Carpark; Stobcross Road; Finnieston Street; Clydeside Express Way; Argyle Street; West Campbell Street; Bath Street; North Street; Woodlands Road; Park Street; Great Western Road; Crow Road; Rosevale Street; Beith Street; Benalder Street; Old Dumbarton Road; Dalnair Street; Through Hospital to Yorkhill staff car park.
