Cairngorms National Park offers electric bike hires

Electric bicycles are being offered for hire in the Cairngorms National Park.

The park authority said the idea was to allow people to explore the area in a more environmentally-friendly way.

A network of free charge points has been put in place and the electric bikes are available to hire from a number of sites.

Helping to launch the initiative was 75-year-old endurance cyclist Penny Weir, from Aviemore, who has completed a number of long distance rides.

In 2008, with Mavis Paterson, from Dumfries and Galloway, she completed a 6,000-mile charity cycling marathon across Canada.
