Stornoway residents and tourists rode back in time as cyclists took to the streets clad in tweed.
The fourth annual Harris Tweed Bike Ride saw more than 45 riders rigged out like a Victorian dressed in tweed, with large crowds gathering to witness the spectacle.
Although cycling can be hot work, especially when bedecked in tweed, the event had enough stop-off points to keep the riders cool and refuelled.
The cycle around Stornoway was launched in 2015 by An Lanntair in association with the Harris Tweed Authority to celebrate the Scottish Year of Innovation.
Organisers decided to continue the popular event and this weekend attracted a large number of locals and tourists to take part and watch.
An Lanntair chief executive Elly Fletcher said: “It was wonderful, and it was so great the weather held out just in time for us to enjoy a leisurely ride around the town.
“It has been growing in popularity over the years, and helps bring out the crowds.
“We stopped off a various locations, including Lews Castle, to have refreshments, and ended up with tea and scones at the end at the An Lanntair premises.”
And in the grandest traditions of the Tour de France, the best dressed rider receives Le Maillot Jaune – An Geansaidh Buidhe in Gaelic – also known as The Yellow Jersey, specially knitted for the occasion.
The winner this year was Jennifer Howie, while the youngest winner awarded the White Jersey was Daniel Reid.
Those who were unable to seek out their own tweed were given the opportunity to try on some tweed from the Harris Tweed Authority collection, available in An Lanntair’s foyer.
Harris Tweed bike rides involve riders wearing head-to-toe tweed and are held all over the world, including in England, Russia and Japan.
The event is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides LEADER 2014-2020 programme.
