Manchester Sky Ride: Thousands take to their bikes

Thousands of people took to their bikes for the Manchester Sky Ride on Sunday.

The event, now in its fifth year, saw cyclists ride the circular route from Albert Square in Manchester, out to MediaCity, and back again.

Cyclists could enjoy traffic-free riding as the normally busy roads from Manchester to Salford were closed off to cars.

There was also entertainment, stalls and a BMX show at MediaCity.
