Staff from an Aberdeen car repair service have set off on the first leg of a 458-mile cycle to raise vital funds for charity.
Employees from the Kwik Fit in Dyce began their journey yesterday as part of a relay team, which will see 80 staff members from different branches cycle the length of the country.
Their journey will include more than 120 centres and end in Manchester on September 18.
