Cyclists of all ages saddled up for the freshnlo Pedal for Scotland Glasgow Family Ride, followed a four-mile traffic-free loop through the city.
The families who took part in yesterday's event started at the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, before passing through Glasgow Green and along the River Clyde.
A total of 3500 people later flocked to the velodrome to see a sold out one-off stunt show by cyclist Danny MacAskill and his former team, The Clan.
City councillor Frank McAveety kicked off the event and called it a "testament to the enduring popularity of cycling in Glasgow".
He added: "It's been fantastic to see so many families out enjoying the great traffic-free cycling infrastructure we have connecting the Emirates Arena to our other traffic-free routes across the city.
"Hopefully the young people who came along will feel inspired by the likes of Danny MacAskill, The Clan and the Scottish Cycling track stars who showcased their incredible skills."
Many participants were raising money for children and young people in Scotland affected by poverty by supporting the event's official charity partner, the STV Appeal.
Stunt star Danny said: "I really enjoyed seeing so many families taking part in the cycle today and although it was a short four mile loop, I spotted lots of youngsters flying round the course three or four times which is fantastic.
The family ride served as a warm-up to next week's Pedal for Scotland Glasgow to Edinburgh ride.
Ian Aitken, chief executive of Cycling Scotland said: "It was brilliant to see so many people out in their bikes."
