The event was organised by Neil Collins, of Diss Cycling Club, and Alan Franks, of Diss CTC, raising funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

As well as competitors taking part in the Nine Town Sportive, there were opportunities for casual family rides, while music and entertainment was on offer in Diss Park.

If you think we had between 750 and 1,000 riders, for a town the size of Diss – that’s big
