More than 20 people came together to raise funds for a charity helping those with brain injuries and disabilities.
Lowestoft charity Brainwave Independence Group (BIG) invited cyclists to take part in a 32-mile bike ride on Sunday, April 15. The event was held in memory of Rosemary King - the mother of Tony King, Brainwave activities coordinator - who died on the day of the event in 2016.
Starting from Corton Road in Lowestoft amid foggy conditions, the group of fundraisers pedalled to the Wherry Inn in Geldeston before heading back towards the coast.
BIG promotes independent living among its clients and helps them pursue full and interesting lives. Their goal is to open a day centre in Lowestoft that people with brain injuries or disabilities can visit.
Waveney MP Peter Aldous, who was present to wish the cyclists a safe ride, said: 'What Brainwave does for people with brain injuries and disabilities is vitally important. They do some great work and its a privilege for me to be here.'
