Last year the Tour de Norfolk teamed up with the Big C cancer charity, and this year they're keen to break the £20,000 fundraising total they hit in 2016.

The event will be sponsored by Desira Group PLC which will also be providing support vehicles for the cyclists.

Music and catering will be available all day at the Norfolk Showground with food and drink stations posted along the route.

For those not cycling, various attractions, music and catering will be available all day at the showground – among them a large marquee hosting the Norfolk Cycle Show.
