Arnold Schwarzenegger off for a bike ride in Edinburgh today

Snap a picture of Terminator star riding bike in Scottish capital and win some socks!

Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger is planning a bike ride in Edinburgh today - and if you get a picture of him in the saddle in the Scottish capital, you could win a pair of socks.

That's the prize on offer to the first reader to tweet us a picture of the actor-turned-politician whom the Edinburgh Evening News reports will explore the city's sights by bike this afternoon before attending a £1,500 a ticket black tie dinner and charity auction where he will talk about his rise to fame.

The actor-turned-politician regularly takes to two wheels when visiting cities around the world - he's been pictured riding a bike alongside Boris Johnson in London, and last year was stopped by a police officer in Melbourne for not wearing a helmet, in contravention of the law in Victoria.
