The incident happened on the west bound carriageway between the Kilbowie roundabout and the Erskine Bridge. The cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

The west bound carriageway was closed with diversions in place. Police have appealed for witnesses.

"I would like to speak to anyone who was on the A82 around 1100 hours this morning, particularly those travelling on the east bound carriageway, who may have seen what happened.

"I would also like to see any footage of the incident which may have been captured on a dash cam or by any local businesses or properties with CCTV."
