More than 100 riders too part in a charity cycle ride today to raise funds for two good causes.
The Ron Sampson Charity Cycle Ride was held in Carlton Colville and organised by Lowestoft's East Point Rotary Club.
The ride was renamed this year in memory of a Rotary Club member who died last year following a stroke.
Mr Sampson, from Gisleham, had been a popular member of the club and had enjoyed sports, including football and golf.
Proceeds from this year's event will be split between the Rotary Club Trust Fund, which supports a variety of charities, and the stroke ward at James Paget University Hospital, where Mr Sampson was treated.

Organiser Steve James said: 'Ron was a lovely man and a good Rotarian. I think Bev was honoured that we named it after him.'

Riders left from Uplands Community Centre in Asburnham Way. They completed one of three routes, which were between six and 20 miles long and all finished back at the community centre.
Mr James said: 'It has all gone well. It is a good turnout and it rewards all the effort we put in to organising it. We had 65 riders last year and I think we will have double that this year.
'It is nice to see families out as well as the real keen cyclists. It is a very safe route for youngsters and there are marshalls at every junction. It is geared towards fun but we have also got two or three cycle teams out there.'
