Riders have set off on a lap of the region for charity.
The Lap of Anglia left the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at King's Lynn as they began their 400-mile marathon.
The ride is in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, circling its territory clock-wise.
It takes in the north Norfolk coast, heads inland to Norwich, then returns to the coastline to take in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.
The route then takes in the Suffolk coast, before Ipswich, Luton, Bedford and Peterborough, before returning to King's Lynn.
