A team of cyclists from each of Norfolk’s councils have completed a round county cycle relay for Norfolk Day.
Setting off from south Norfolk council in Long Stratton early this morning (Friday July 26) the first cyclists headed east to Great Yarmouth and then onto north Norfolk.
The cyclists then travelled along the coast to King's Lynn before making their way to Breckland, Broadland and Norwich before finishing at Archant's head office.

Andrew Skiggs, a finance officer at Norfolk County Council, who cycled the entire 170 mile round trip, said: "The day has been really good, because we were picking up new cyclists on each leg there was always someone to talk to.
"The weather was just right, we had one shower between King's Lynn and Dereham but it was quite refreshing.
"There was a real buzz when we picked everybody up from the district offices, I'd like to think this could become an annual event," he said.
