Cyclists from across the region came together to take part in a 200 mile ride for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
Over the weekend 16 riders raised more than £23,000 for the charity as they cycled across all three counties, stopping at EACH's hospices at Quidenham in Norfolk, The Treehouse in Ipswich and Milton in Cambridgeshire.
The route started and ended at the home of sponsors Johnston Logistics UK, in Snetterton, with overnight stops at Ipswich and Cambridge.
Tal Williams, EACH fundraiser, said: 'The phenomenal amount raised will pay for a day of care and support in Cambridgeshire and West Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and East Essex, with a few thousand pounds to spare.'
EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and supports their families.

It costs EACH almost £6 million a year to deliver its services and all funds raised through Ride for Life will go towards the cause.
The event would not have been possible without the support and sponsorship of Johnston Logistics UK.
