Final preparations are under way for a major cycling event which will take place in Aberdeen today.
Ovo Energy Tour Series, a programme of professional bike races held in cities around the UK, has returned to the city.
A number of roads, including Union Street, Broad Street, Upperkirkgate, Schoolhill, Back Wynd and Belmont Street, have been closed and are included in the race route.
Surrounding roads are also closed and parking restrictions are in place.
Aberdeen City Council employees and workers from race organisers SweetSpot have been working since the early hours of the morning to set up the course and ensure the event runs smoothly.
