THE annual Moray Poppy Ride returned for its fourth edition on Armistice Day, with 150 cyclists paying tribute to the fallen around the area.
The poppy ride was organised for Saturday, November 11, by husband and wife duo Mervyn and Lindsey Stanley and sees riders undertake either a 52 or 64-mile cycle.
Cyclists stopped at 11 war memorials in Moray to honour the fallen, raising funds to support Poppy Scotland, veterans and their families.
The cycle began at Elgin's Cooper Park and finished at the Windswept Brewery in Lossiemouth.
The all-important coffee stop was at Kinloss Barracks, hosted by 39 Engineer Regiment, where the cyclists had the opportunity to race down the main runway.
Poppy-themed sandwiches and cakes were provided by MacLeans Highland Bakery.
Gordon Michie, head of fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “The Moray Poppy Ride organised by Mervyn and Lindsey is a brilliant event that brings people together to do something fun.
"It also raising much-needed funds to support the Armed Forces communities across the country, including in Moray."
