Today's Tweed Ride got off to a relaxed start as befits such an event, somewhat later than planned.
There was a fine turnout of bikes and riders in the bright autumnal sunshine.
Riding though the city centre the ride attracted much comment. My favourite was a cry of "man, these people know how to dress."
As for the machines, there were a number of modern bikes alongside some lovely reproductions,
and stunning originals like this shaft drive.
