Cyclists took over Bradford city centre on Sunday for the 6th annual Sky Ride event.
This year Bradford saw thousands of cyclists of all ages ride around the 5k route that started in City Park and also took in Little Germany and the city centre.
Joined the thousands of bikers was Jason Queally, who won gold in cycling at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.
Many of the riders passing through City Park rode through the mirror pool, whilst others kept dry and steered clear.
The event was organised between Team Sky, British Cycling and Bradford Council.
Also joining thousands of cyclists was Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Joanne Dodds, who was also on the route, sharing a tandem bike with council youth worker Naz Ali.
The route also featured a fun fair and the opportunity for cyclists to see and have a go at stunt riding.
