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.
