Jenny Graham is one of 5600 riders who will be taking part at Etape Loch Ness on Sunday.

Last year, she became the fastest woman to cycle unsupported around the world in 124 days across four continents and 16 countries.

Now she will tackle the 66-mile course of closed roads in the biggest cycling event in the area.

“I’m coming in as a supporter rider for my niece," she said.

"For us on the day it’s less about the ‘race’ and more about the experience.

“This is going to be a pleasure, a rare day out with Lauren and the opportunity to be part of something that has been on my to-do list for ages.

"But I’ve never been around at the time when it’s on so I have never had the opportunity so this year is going to be different.

“I am biased as I born and bred here, but this is the most beautiful place and the most beautiful route.”
