Setting off from Sir John Leman High School at 10am, cyclists will raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Rotary Club of Beccles Charitable Trust. This year cycling helmets are compulsory for all who take part.

To honour the popular event which will take place on Sunday (May 12), we looked through the archives to find the best memories of the ride through the years.
