Well done to Ben, Liv, Greg, Shona, Sabah and Luke and the team, and Matt Baker of course…..to donate text TEAM to 70405 (£5), 70410 (£10) or 70420 (£20)…..on their way from Cannock 69 miles to Salford today.

This year’s team will pedal an epic 500 miles to raise money for BBC Children in Need. In a first for the challenge, the team will embark on their journey from London, riding north to Glasgow.

Since 2011, The Rickshaw Challenge has raised over £16 million for BBC Children in Need, and every penny that’s donated goes towards helping children and young people across the UK.

The new team of six riders, all of whom have been supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects, will push themselves to the limit, battling steep hills and braving the elements in the hope that their efforts will help them raise as much money as possible.

Cycling alongside the team once more is The One Show’s Matt Baker, who will go on the road offering support and advice throughout the journey.

They set off on Thursday 9th November from The One Show studio in London, Team Rickshaw and will work their way across the UK in a bid to cross the finish line in Glasgow on Friday 17th November, during BBC Children in Need’s 2017 Appeal Show.

Amazing effort. You can follow their progress on Twitter #TeamRickshaw
