Hundreds of people are expected to dust down their bicycles and take part in the annual Holkham Cycle Ride in aid of cancer charity Big C on Sunday, October 5.
Organisers say the challenge of using pedal power to raise funds to enable Big C to continue in its vital work of providing complete care to all of those in the community of Norfolk & Waveney, is extended to everybody, regardless of age or ability.
Riders can complete the six mile circuit in the grounds of Holkham Hall Estate near Fakenham as many times as they wish.
The event starts at 10am and continues until 4pm.
