CYCLISTS are protesting outside COP26 in Glasgow today.

It is Transport Day at the conference but many are angry cycling is not on the agenda.

They argue that too much emphasis is being put on electric cars and not cycling.

Around 150 people gathered with their bikes along Broomielaw to protest as delegates entered the venue.

Liza Downie from Shawlands has been cycling in Glasgow for more than 20 years.

She said: "They are not talking about cycling. Cycling is part of the solution to climate change. The person is the engine. I'm baffled why it is not being discussed."

Anna Grady, from Langside, said:" We all ride bikes in Glasgow and are ashamed of our cycling infrastructure.

"When the political will is there you can make a change. COP is here yet there's no mention of bicycles for fighting climate change. It's all about electric cars."

Nancy Henderson, from Cathcart, said: "Electric cars won't change congestion and it won't make cycling safer."
