The Sandringham Estate is the home of the Queen during the winter months, but this weekend it was home to quintessential summer celebrations enjoyed by all.

Hundreds of cyclists of all abilities proved their pedalling power as Cycle Together returned for another year, raising money for a minibus to help take guests at the Park House hotel - for disabled people - on trips out.

Entrants could take part in 10, 20, 50 or 100 mile routes.

Events manager Jasmine Monk said: 'We run this cycle event every year but this year it's the Queen's birthday so we wanted to make it extra special by encouraging people to stay around after their ride. We wanted to have a little bit of a party of our own.'
