Cycling charity the Glasgow Bike Station ran a series of Winter Wheels sessions to help cyclists stay safe through the colder months.

Campaigners reminded those on two wheels to wear high visibility clothing and invest in a good set of lights.

The project was run alongside the Better Way to Work scheme, which encourages year-round sustainable travel for commuters.

Participants took part in a guided bike ride along the Forth and Clyde Canal, as far as The Stables, at Kirkintilloch, for a lunch stop.

Victoria Leiper, campaign manager at Glasgow Bike Station, said: "Cycling in the winter months is not nearly as bad as some people think."
