The Rickshaw Challenge

Team Rickshaw stood around a giant number 10

The Rickshaw Challenge is back for 2020 as Matt Baker and a team of six young people will take on the challenge for the 10th year.

The original plan this year was to ride the equivalent of Matt’s first solo Rickshaw ride in 2011, from Edinburgh to London – 332 miles in a straight line – within the iconic grounds of ‘Glorious’ Goodwood, however following the start of the challenge on Monday 9th, it was unfortunately decided that to ensure their safety the riders should be sent home. You can read all about why that decision was made here.

However,  Team Rickshaw don’t give up that easily! We have sent exercise bikes to their houses where they will continue the challenge virtually- attempting to still reach their 332 mile target whilst staying in touch over video chat. Make sure you to tune in to The One Show each evening to check on their progress and check below to find out how you can support the team.

How you can support Team Rickshaw

The team need your support more than ever to keep them going through the week and there are lots of ways to support them.

We would love you to show your support by fundraising whilst taking on your own challenge. Go outside or on your own static bike- it doesnt matter how many miles you pedal, just use our fundraising page to ask for donations.

It’s also easy to support team at home and on social with our Rickshaw supporters kit.
