Great British Bake Off winner Sophie Faldo swapped whisks for wheels when she took to the track at Lee Valley VeloPark.
The cook, who is a keen cyclist, joined riders for the Bikes and Bakes event in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
After a one-mile pedal around the outdoor circuit, cyclists participated in a range of fitness sessions before refuelling with a few sweet treats.
Sophie, who won the Channel 4 programme last year, said: “I jumped at the chance to get involved in Lee Valley VeloPark’s Bikes and Bakes event which successfully combined two of my favourite things – cycling and cake!
“It was brilliant to see so many new cyclists at the event today trying their hand at cycling and enjoying some tasty cake.
“Thankfully there were only sore bums and no soggy bottoms by the end of the day.”
