Hundreds of cyclists and spectators turned out in glorious sunshine in Bath this morning for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to ride alongside Olympic legend, Sir Chris Hoy, as the gallery of pictures above shows.

Hoy was at the recently opened Odd Down Circuit as part of a promotional tour to show off his new range of bikes, the six-time Olympic champion also taking time to chat to many of those present in his usual engaging style.

The bikes are being sold through Evans - here's a video of the opening day of the tour on Monday, kicking off with a staff breakfast where employees got the chance to meet one of cycling's true legends.
