The One Show’s Rickshaw Challenge for BBC Children in Need will take off from New Broadcasting House in London on 9 November, beginning its nine day, 500-mile journey north to Glasgow.
This year’s all-new team of six young riders has been supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects. Now keen to give back, Team Rickshaw will take on the epic ride to Glasgow in order to raise money for the charity and help make a difference to young lives. The challenge sees presenter Matt Baker take to the saddle once more, as he cycles alongside the team.
The week’s programmes will feature a chance to hear directly from the young riders about the experiences that have led them to take on the Rickshaw Challenge. The challenge will end on 17 November during BBC Children in Need’s Appeal show, but viewers can tune in to the show every week day from 9th November to follow the team’s journey.
