Riders revved up the style, in crisp shirts and tailored suits for a charity motorcycle ride.

Elegantly attired bikers from across East Anglia assembled in Cromer for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride.

The celebration of classic and classically styled motorcycles raised almost £10,000 for prostate cancer research and men's mental health.

The ride set out from Roadkill Customs motorcycle shop to Reepham Classic Car Festival, returning to Cromer promenade where crowds gathered to admire the bikes.

Now in its second year, the Cromer Distinguished Gentleman's Ride is part of an international charity event that raises awareness and funds for the Movember Foundation's men's health programs.

The ride was started by the family of Geoff Fox who took part in last year's ride and recently passed away from prostate cancer.

Ride organiser Rachael Verlander said: 'It was a lovely genteel day with some people riding in memory of lost loved ones, so quite poignant.

'I organise quite a lot of events, but this is the nicest one to be part of.

'I was delighted with the amount of money we raised, it would have been nice to have got to £10,000, but we had a good stab at it. The ride taps into the hipster and dapper styles that are on trend at the moment.'
