A GROUP of volunteers working to create a link between two Ross-shire communities is talking up the benefits of saddling up and getting out for a bicycle ride.

The Peffery Way Association is working to establish a safe cycling and walking link between Strathpeffer and Dingwall.

It has shared a film called Riding through the dark which show elite and non-elite cyclists tell of the demons they encounter as they ride through mental and physical darkness in the beautiful Highlands.

Featuring athletes of The Adventure Syndicate and Velocity's Women's Cycle to Health Scheme, it is an inspiring account which also showcases the beauty of the region.

The Peffery Way group said: "It's been really lovely seeing so many folk out on their bikes on the Peffery Way and around the roads in the last few months.

"Check out this fantastic film talking about how cycling really helps you get some headspace and re-connect with yourself and others...when are you going riding again?"

The Peffery Way has shared the video on its Facebook page.
