Dozens of bikers put on their leathers to raise £26,820 on a charity ride in memory of Phil Beeton.
Mr Beeton, from Ely, sadly lost his life in a crash on the A10 at Chittering in October 2015.
Around 100 cyclists and 94 bikers took part in the ride on August Bank Holiday Sunday (August 25) in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
Due to the swift action of the EAAA, they were instrumental in saving the life of Phil's nephew Jack by airlifting him to Addenbrokes Hospital following the tragic crash.
A staggering £18,134 was raised over the course of the weekend itself, with the total amount topping £26,000 by the start of this month.

It means that more than £60,000 has been raised for the EAAA over the past three years.
Anyone is welcome to take part in the ride next year.
