MOTORCYCLIST Ian Biederman is calling on his fellow riders to join him on a charity ride to Hunstanton to celebrate the life of his niece.
Mr Biederman's niece Molly Biederman died in 2006 from Wilms disease, a rare form of childhood cancer.
Since then he has raised more than £21,000 for the Molly Biederman Wilms Tumour Foundation, which will be used to fund research into the disease.
The ride to Hunstanton will take place on Sunday, May 25.
Mr Biederman said: "We'll be riding out from Royston to Wells-next-the-Sea and then on to Hunstanton, along the coastal road.
"It should be a nice ride and I'd like to see as many people as possible join us .
"A Wilms tumour is a type of kidney cancer which mainly affects children under five.
"Molly bravely endured chemotherapy and extensive surgery, but wasn't able to survive.
"We want to help others beat the disease."
A similar ride took place last year, and raised more than £1,000.
Mr Biederman, who runs the ART motorcycle training centre in Royston, said: "The weather was absolutely horrendous last year, but we still had 12 hardy souls taking part.
"I hope we can top that this year."
Any motorcyclists are welcome to join the ride, which will begin at 9.30am on at Royston Tesco.
The suggested donation is £10 per head, and can be made directly to the charity at www.justgiving.com/wecanbeatwilms.
