Hundreds take part in European inspired cycling event

Hundreds have joined Britain's most successful female Olympian, Laura Kenny, in a city centre cycling event.

Roads were closed in Nottingham so cyclists could ride with their friends and family in a traffic-free environment.

Today's ride gave people a flavour of what cycling is like in other European cities - where cyclists can often ride totally separately from cars.
