Dozens of vintage scooter enthusiasts toured a 70-mile route from the Don to the Dee in aid of charity on Saturday.
As the thunderstorms of the early morning cleared, just short of 50 riders set off from the Beach Ballroom, winding through the countryside to Banchory and back via Dunecht and Dyce.
The group took on the 70-mile circuit to raise money for Mental Health Aberdeen, which is marking seven decades of providing support and advice in the north-east.
Vespa and Lambretta riders from as far away as Fraserburgh and Montrose took part in event, which raised more than £800.
Organiser Robert Carmichael had originally planned the ride for May but it could not go ahead due to the lockdown.
The 51-year-old, who runs a tuk tuk tour company in Aberdeen, said: “We took a judgement that restrictions were easing and the roads would still be quiet, which was important there’s nothing worse on winding roads than being held up by a group of scooters.
“It was exceptional weather for it and we couldn’t have asked for better, it was beautiful.
“When I woke up and heard the thunder I didn’t think it would go ahead.
“I think around 60% of MHA’s funding comes from donations and when you hear how lockdown has affected the mental health of so many, it seemed a worthy cause.”
