BBC presenters are pedalling for Pudsey this November by cycling over 100 miles in total in aid of BBC Children In Need.

Graham Liver, newsreader on BBC North West Tonight and Breakfast presenter on BBC Radio Lancashire, and John Gillmore, who presents the Afternoon show, will set off from the Ashton Memorial in Lancaster to start their epic journey.

The pair will then be visiting every part of Lancashire in their special PudseyMobile, including, Chorley, Blackburn, Accrington, Burnley, Colne, Padiham, Whalley and Clitheroe.

The duo hope that they will be joined along their route by listeners to help cheer them on; there will also be coverage on the radio, online and on BBC North West Tonight.

They will finish up on Friday 17 November, ahead of BBC Children in Need Appeal night, at Blackpool Tower.

The pair aren’t strangers to fundraising for BBC Children in Need. Last year, Graham dragged a specially-designed bed along highways and country lanes meeting listeners in many of the towns and villages covered by BBC Radio Lancashire.

Graham Liver said: “Last year, pulling a bed across the county was surprisingly really hard but it was the generous people of Lancashire who kept me going.

"This year will be different because it's not a normal bike ride.

"We are cycling a PudseyMobile, which is a four seater cycle but with every strength in the world it does not look like a bike at all.

"It looks more like a little yellow cab.

"We will be visiting local primary schools too because when we cycle in with these strange bikes kids will go crazy for it.
