A group of friends are cycling 350 miles to Torquay in five days to raise money for a cancer charity.
Tom Vosper, 25, and five school friends set off from The Forum in Norwich at 8am on Monday.
They will be cycling on average 70 miles per day with no previous cycling experience, and will be stopping at Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol and Silverton along the way.
Mr Vosper, from Hethersett said: “Last autumn my dad passed away from cancer and I wanted to do something big for the local charity as they were quite supportive. My dad was a big fan of theirs as well.
“As of yesterday we’ve raised £4,100 but we’re hoping for £5,000.”
Mr Vosper’s father David grew up in Torquay in Devon, and was an avid Torquay United supporter. He later moved to Hethersett where Tom Vosper grew up.
