A record-breaking cyclist will close an Aberdeen science festival by giving a talk.
Scottish athlete Graeme Obree will speak about his experience, including how he broke a world record using a bike he built himself.
The event on Saturday takes place in the Arts Lecture Theatre at Aberdeen University and is part of this year’s TechFest.
Mr Obree said: “I’m thrilled to be part of TechFest this year and I’m looking forward to sharing my career highs and lows with the audience as well as discussing the best way to make improvements in your own life.
“I became a world champion although the odds were stacked against me, so I hope I can demonstrate that with the right mindset and processes, people can apply themselves to make their dreams a reality.”

Known as The Flying Scotsman, Obree smashed the UCI World Hour Record in 1993 using a bike named Old Faithful, which he made from washing machine parts.
He then set a new world record for cycling in prone position in 2013, using a bike made in the kitchen of his Ayrshire flat.
