Hundreds of cyclists got pedaling in Staffordshire at the weekend, as part of the second annual Staffordshire Cycling Festival.

More than 700 people participated in one of the many rides over the weekend, with routes for the novice and veteran cyclist available.

Some of the UK's top cyclists also took part in the festival, including two time gold medal Olympian, Ed Clancy and recently crowned Commonwealth Games track gold medallist Tom Scully.

Cycling Festival founder and organiser Paul Rowlands said: "We've been astounded by the response to this year's event.

"With the number of cycling events staged throughout the UK at an all-time high, the vast increase in the number of registrations is something to be celebrated.

"It's thanks to our partners, Staffordshire County Council, The Lewis Partnership and a lot of local businesses that have got behind the Staffordshire Cycling Festival enabling us to put on such a great, fun action packed weekend."
