Cycling enthusiasts and rugby fans are joining forces to raise money for local charities by cycling hundreds of miles and visiting every Norfolk rugby club along the way.

The three-day Club Together 2017 event is taking place in September.

More than 50 riders have signed up for the annual challenge.

Every rider involved has pledged to raise at least £250.

Half the money raised will go towards the Wooden Spoon charity.
