HOLLYWOOD star Arnold Schwarzenegger has been pictured out on his bike in Edinburgh’s West End and declared it a ‘beautiful city’.

The action hero had last night taken part in an ‘Audience with’ event at the EICC.

He was spotted today posing for selfies with fans on Shandwick Place and then documented his tour on Snapchat. He also later tweeted: “My first Edinburgh bike ride. A beautiful city!”

His Snapchat showed him posing in front of some of the Capital’s most iconic sites and joking around with the legions of photographers and fans hot on his tail.

“We’re in Edinburgh, Scotland, riding our bike early in the morning. As you can see, there’s all kinds of activities.

“Look at this beautiful view. Man, look at the castle, everything in the background. Wow, I love biking here in Edinburgh.

“So when you ride around places like Edinburgh, Scotland, you see great sites - look at this castle here, wow!

“The paparazzi were all after me [during the bike ride], and one of them kept up - look at this guy!”

It wasn’t all plain sailing though as the Terminator star ended up cycling on the wrong side of the road at one point.

Heading out of the Waldorf Astoria hotel, the 68-year-old whizzed up Lothian Road into two lanes of oncoming traffic during rush hour.

One onlooker said: “He came out of his hotel and went for a bike ride. He was driving on the wrong side of the road. It was dangerous.

“There were two lanes of traffic coming towards him. He was risking his life.

Also, he wasn’t wearing a helmet.

The star was later pictured leaving Edinburgh in a silver BMW.
