The 25-strong team then hopes to complete another 62 miles before the final event in August at the Tour de Broads (North) which will cover another 100 miles, clocking up a total of 212 miles.
Edward Bates, 26, has been blind since birth and will be cycling on a tandem with his father.
He said: “I have cycled before but never long distance, so it will be quite interesting to see how it turns out and what it’s like on the day.
Lucian Bertea from Inturn said: “We have seen firsthand the difference that the NNAB can make, particularly to children and their families, this was a great opportunity to get involved and help raise the NNAB’s profile as well as much-needed funds.”
Money raised will go towards the NNAB Young Eyes initiative, which offers services to more than 150 visually-impaired children, their families and carers.
