Hundreds of bikers have converged on Denholm in the Scottish Borders for the annual Steve Hislop Memorial Run.

The Hizzy Run draws people from a wide area to remember the superbike champion who died in a helicopter crash near Hawick in 2003.

Organiser Wendy Oliver said a few changes had been made to the route for this year's proceedings.

The 165-mile run starts and finishes in Denholm and includes a circuit of Hawick town centre.

In previous years it has started in Dundee and worked its way down to the Scottish Borders.

Ms Oliver said it always attracted a strong participation.

"Last year, surprisingly, the weather was atrocious and we still had over 200 bikes," she said.

"I think we are due a good sunny day this year and I would like to think we will have in excess of 200 or 300.

"You get everything from young children sitting on the back of bikes to vintage bikes - even if they just join in and do a small part of the run."
