In search of Hardie

I'm planning a wee cycling trip around the places linked to keir hardie. My trip will start in Ayrshire and eventually bring me up to Glasgow where i'm hoping to find some places once linked to the man. If anyone can point me in the direction of anywhere related to Keir Hardie i'd be most grateful.

When you start off in Ayrshire make sure your trip includes Cumnock Congregational Church of which he was a member and ruling elder before walking out in disgust and splitting the church...

O and just as another footnote - they now have a bust of him inside and they're proud of their 'famous' son, even though their antecedents wanted to burn him alive!

Going into cycling is simply the best exercise. It's fun especially if you're going out with friends...
