Traditionally seen as tough and with a love of the open road bikers were happy to shed the stereotype for a little while as they stopped to indulge in tea and cake to raise money for charity.

Motorcycle specialists Roadkill Customs, based in Norwich Road, Cromer, hosted the annual Bike and Trike meet fundraiser on Sunday in memory of their biker friend David 'Dibsy' Holmes, 38, from Norwich who died in a crash at Honingham in June last year .

They also helped raise £1,000 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance with a collection and cake sale.

Rachael Verlander, who owns Roadkill Customs and organised the fudnraiser, said: 'Each May we have an event and raise money for a different charity each year. We do have people come from all over and we have lots of volunteers who support us and we could not do it without them. The live band have also played for free.'

In previous years they have raised more than £1,000 for various charities and had around 200 bikers visit them.
