The Pearl Izumi Tour Series

Not the best shot - but certainly catches the speed of the passing cyclists ...

... was taken on Victoria Street, as The Pearl Izumi Tour Series came to Edinburgh’s Grassmarket/City Centre - some further detail here (and below):

"Edinburgh’s fast, furious and tactical race will be staged on a new and extremely challenging 1.6-kilometre circuit that includes cobbles, a gruelling hill climb and hairpin bends.

The 500 metre cobbled climb up Victoria Street, which was used when the series last came to the city in 2014, will again form the centre piece of the race. 
In 2016 the riders will turn left at the top of the street to take in the Lawnmarket and a fast downhill section on Johnston Terrace below Edinburgh Castle, before returning to the Grassmarket via West Port."
