Back for a fifth year, this year’s team is covering a 470 mile journey which began at Land’s End on November 6.

Today’s route saw the team starting at Winchester this morning.

They pedalled through Midhurst, Easebourne and Tillington and stopped off at Petworth at midday, before continuing on to Brighton.

The rickshaw is being pedalled by six young riders, all of who have been supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects.
