THE One Show’s Rickshaw Challenge in aid of Children in Need will pass through north Lancashire and Cumbria tomorrow.

Members of the Rickshaw Team will be pedalling northwards as they complete the punishing 59-miles between Morecambe and Penrith on day six of the epic 500-mile charity challenge from London to Glasgow.

On the way they will pass through Bolton-le-Sands, Carnforth, Warton, Arnside, Milnthorpe, Heversham, Levens, Brigsteer, Crosthwaite, Bowness, Windermere, Troutbeck Bridge, Patterdale and Glenridding.

Since 2011, The Rickshaw Challenge has raised more than £16 million for BBC Children in Need, and every penny that is 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, whilst co-presenter, Alex Jones, will follow their every move and cheer the team on, live from the studio.

They set off today from The One Show studio at New Broadcasting House in London and are due to cross the finish line on the Clyde on November 17, during BBC Children in Need’s 2017 Appeal Show.

Their arrival in Morecambe at around 7pm today will mark the end of the 53-mile leg of the journey from Salford to the seaside town.

Everyone is invited to the Eric Morecambe Statue from 6pm to get ready to give Matt Baker and his team a warm welcome. This will be shown live on BBC1’s The One Show.
