Hundreds of cyclists took part in an annual charity bike ride.
The Beccles Cycle for Life was organised by the Rotary Club of Beccles and offered a choice of seven, 15, 25, 40 or 50-mile routes on country roads.
Riders set off from Sir John Leman High School in Ringsfield Road on Sunday morning in gloomy conditions, which got brighter as the morning went on.
The ride will support East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and the Rotary club's charitable trust and prizes were donated by Norfolk and Suffolk Financial Services Limited and Lord Somerleyton.
A spokesman for the air ambulance said its mission was to: 'To alleviate suffering and save lives, by the rapid delivery of specialist clinicians and equipment to accidents and medical emergencies and the subsequent transfer of patients to and between hospitals.'
