Mountain bikers try city downhill
Night ride
About 250 bikers took part in the event
Some of the world's best mountain bikers have taken to the steps and closes of Edinburgh centre.

Crowds lined the route for the world's first night-time urban downhill biking race, on a course from the Castle Esplanade to the Grassmarket.

Organisers Fat Face kept the route for The Urban Downhill at Night a secret until a few hours before the race on Saturday.

Competitors were then allowed to walk the route ahead of the race.

There was 3,000 in prize money.
