The Tour Series 2017
On 25th May 2017 Aberdeen hosted round 8 of the annual professional team cycling race, The Tour Series.

The series held races in ten locations around the UK. As can be seen in this photo, the Aberdeen route went past the Central Library.

The race started on Union Bridge, went down Union Terrace, along Schoolhill, turned into Back Wynd, then back on Union Street up to the junction with Market Street before turning around and finishing back at the bridge.

There were a variety of amateur races throughout the day, before the elite race at 19.30, and a Cycling Activity Village was held in Union Terrace Gardens.

This photo is of the senior race that started at 14.45.
