Women from across Perth and Kinross are being urged to draw inspiration from the upcoming Commonwealth Games by getting on their bikes.
As the date of the second annual Scottish Cycletta event draws near, the organisers are hoping to recruit more entrants.
Backed by former Olympian Victoria Pendleton, the sportive raises money for Macmillan and will take place at Scone Palace on October 5.
Perth and Kinross Provost Elizabeth Grant has again been given the honour of waving the women off and is encouraging more people to sign up.
She said: “I am delighted to welcome Macmillan Cycletta back to Perthshire, and to be part of this fantastic event.
“In the year when Scotland comes under the world’s sporting spotlight as hosts of the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup, it’s great to offer an event that encourages more and more women into cycling.”
Among those considering taking on the women-only challenge are Amy Bauchope and Rosa Hollas, both 14 and pupils at Perth High School.
“I’d really love to take part,” Amy said. “I’m hoping to get a bike for my birthday and I’ve asked my mum if she’d like to take part with me.”
Females aged from 12 upwards can sign up for a variety of routes, from the 20km jaunt aimed at novices, to the 100km for those who enjoy a challenge.
