Matt will be carrying a passenger at all times when it is possible to do so. The only times it may not be possible would be on dangerously steep downhills, where the passenger is at risk of falling out, and steep uphills, when it will be a physical risk for Matt to over-exert himself, at which point the passenger would get out of the rickshaw and help Matt push it uphill.

BBC Children in Need supports projects working with disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. They currently support around 2,500 projects that are working with children facing a range of disadvantages, for example, poverty and deprivation, disabled young people and children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect.

This year's appeal will be on Friday 18 November.
