Around 7,000 people lined up on two wheels on Sunday to cycle to Glasgow as part of the last ever Pedal for Scotland event.

Started in 1999, with just 425, the ride was one of the first non-profit, mass participation cycling events in Scotland.

Now, thousands headed through to Glasgow from Edinburgh between two of the three levels on the day, with a smaller event running between the capital and Linlithgow.

Pedal for Scotland is the only time people on bikes can cycle between Scotland’s two main cities on roads without other traffic.

However, from 2020 Pedal for Scotland will evolve into shorter, local and free events in an effort to help more people enjoy cycling, regardless of income.

Despite changing its format, organisers have praised the legacy the event leaves behind.

Pedal for Scotland is said to contribute around £1million annually and participants have raised millions of pounds for good causes, most recently tackling child poverty.
