Glasgow City Council have announced a £1.17m investment on cycling infrastructures across the region.
Along with funding from Transport Scotland's Cycling Walking and Safer Streets (CWSS) and UK charity Sustrans, the development will see more safe cycle routes rolled out throughout the city.
Sustrans will contribute £280,000 which will be used on a north-south cycle route in the city parallel to Buchanan Street, and the creation of a cycle link between Cardonald and the National Cycle Route 7 (NCN 7), a traffic-free route which runs from Sunderland to Inverness.
The hope is the development will address gaps in Glasgow's cycle network, and national director for Sustrans, John Lauder says "there is still much to do".
Lauder said: "We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Glasgow City Council to make the city a more attractive place for walking and cycling as an everyday activity.
"We welcome the Council’s ambition to make Glasgow one of the most cycle friendly cities in the UK. We support the improvements that have already been made across the city – from segregated cycle lanes to the successful cycle hire scheme.
"Big strides have been made, but there is still much to do. We look forward to working with Glasgow City Council in the years ahead to get more people across the city cycling and walking. We hope the city deal will unlock funding for further improvement city-wide."

CWSS contributed £897,000 to the project which will be used for more safe cycle routes in the city, more secure cycle parking facilities and to meet road safety targets.
The monies will also be used to introduce several new road safety schemes in places like Sandyhills Road and Paisley Road West.
A report approved by the city council executive committee confirms a further route from Pollokshaws through Tradeston to the city centre will be completed in August 2015.
Since 2007, Glasgow has seen a 200% rise in the number of cyclists, with investment in Glasgow's cycle networks above the national average.
Building on the legacy of the Commonwealth Games, the developments tie in with the city council's Strategic Plan for Cycling 2015 – 2025 which has recently been put out for public consultation.
The plan has already resulted in a number of new facilities, including plans to build a new BMX (Bicycle Motocross) track in the north west of the city.
Councillor Alistair Watson, executive member for sustainability and transport, said: "We are making real progress in promoting and establishing cycling as a healthy and sustainable form of transport for work and leisure.
"More than £15m has been spent on cycling infrastructure in recent years and this funding will help us to continue with the development of further safer cycle and walking routes.
"We have world-class cycling facilities including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the mountain bike trails at Cathkin Braes.
"But we know it is just as important that people of all ages can travel around the city by bike and on foot, conveniently and safely.
The city council's Strategic Plan for Cycling 2015 – 2025 is available online with closing date scheduled for September 4.
