Women’s cy­cling su­per­star Marianne Vos was in town on the week­end for the 2017 Amaz­ing Al­bany Bike Ride.

The Dutch multi-time world cham­pion joined a group of 100 lo­cal cy­clists as they weaved through some of the re­gion’s most scenic land­scapes on the 82km ride on Sun­day morn­ing.

In 2016, the ride was led out by Vos and Aus­tralian cy­cling leg­end Rob­bie McEwen.

This year she re­turned with her en­tire WM3 Pro Cy­cling Team, who rode with par­tic­i­pants.

The route started at the Na­tional An­zac Cen­tre on Mt Clarence and cy­clists passed through beauty spots in­clud­ing Dis­cov­ery Bay, Sal­mon Holes, The Gap, the wind farm and French­man Bay.
