More than 150 riders set off from Ringsfield in the first post-pandemic edition of the Beccles Cycle for Life charity ride.
The mayor of Beccles, councillor Richard Stubbings, was there to wave the cyclists off at the popular event on Sunday, September 26.
The ride, which raises funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Rotary Club’s charitable trust equally, saw riders choose from a range of distances to suit all kinds and ages of cyclist.
With distances of six, 16, 25, 41 or 50 miles on offer, the Rotary Club of Beccles organised event was hailed a success.
Held in perfect weather, everyone seemed to have a great time with refreshments provided by the Inner Wheel Club of Beccles.
