Cycling legend Lance Armstrong comes to Dornoch 17 July 2011

First of a set of twelve colour photographs of cycling legend Lance Armstrong's open invitation on twitter for a bike ride in Dornoch, Sutherland. The seven times Tour de France champion led a 30-mile (48km) round route starting at The Eagle Hotel, Dornoch shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday 17 July 2011. A large following of cyclists, estimated at between 500 - 1,000, and a large crowd of spectators gathered in Castle Street, Dornoch for the event. The ride, blessed with a sunny late afternoon, took a circular route from Dornoch, via the Embo Road to Loch Fleet, then crossed the A9 short of The Mound to take the Loch Buie road to Bonar Bridge, thence returning via Spinningdale and Clashmore.
