The Rickshaw Challenge will cover a 470-mile journey along the east coast of Britain, stopping off in King’s Lynn on Wednesday 16 November. From 7pm to 8pm The One Show’s Matt Baker will present regular live broadcasts from King’s Staithe Square, near the Custom House.
Setting off on Friday 11 November in the Scottish Borders, the team will work their way down the east coast in a bid to cross the finish line in London on Friday 18 November, in time for the BBC Children in Need Appeal Show.
This rickshaw will be pedalled by six young riders, all of whom have been supported by BBC Children in Need-funded projects. Matt Baker will be on the road cycling alongside the team, while his co-presenter Alex Jones will be following every step of the way live from the studio.
Now in its sixth year, the Rickshaw Challenge has raised more than £12 million for BBC Children in Need.
The One Show viewers will be able to follow Team Rickshaw’s progress on the show each day, but the full route – including a real-time update of the rickshaw’s progress – is also available at pudsey.viewranger.com
