Fundraisers taking part in the second annual Lap of Anglia continue their gruelling 400-mile cycle ride today.

A team of 14 ‘Lappers’ set off from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn on Wednesday morning and are due to finish there tomorrow evening.

Last year’s ride raised more than £10,000 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and it is hoped even more will be raised this time around.

The team pedalled along the coast and then to Norwich on the first day and down to Ipswich on the second.

On Friday, the cyclists will ride to Luton before heading home via Bedford tomorrow.

Adrian Flux Insurance, based at East Winch, again agreed to be the main sponsor, with the support of Iceni water and Robinsons Volkswagen, which supplied two support vehicles for the fundraiser.

The Lap of Anglia is the brainchild of organiser Damien Cross, who works at Maze Media in Lynn, and he hopes to make it an annual event, getting bigger each time.

The final leg of the journey on Saturday is nearly 110 miles and the Lappers home to be back at the QEH by sunset.
