Staff at Breckland Council have taken part in a cycling challenge inspired by Geraint Thomas' Tour De France win to raise money for a local cancer charity.
Over 35 staff took part in a spin bike relay which lasted more than 8 hours, with those involved ensuring that the spin bike pedals didn't stop turning during the marathon session.
The challenge was organised to coincide with Cycle to Work Week and saw council colleagues donate money towards The Big C.
Staff members raised just over £100, with more donations coming in and further events are expected to take place over the coming months.
The Big C chief executive Dr Chris Bushby said: 'We are thrilled to have the support of Breckland Council as their nominated charity, we are very grateful for their fantastic fundraising efforts so far to help Big C make a local difference to people affected by cancer.'
