Rhys Aitchison and Will Vyse had planned to fly 8760km to Guatemala City in May this year to volunteer with Street Kids Direct to support vulnerable children in Guatemala and Honduras.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 their trip was cancelled and with Guatemala's borders still being closed to travellers, Rhys and Will have decided to attempt to cycle one tenth of the distance (876km) to raise money for Street Kids Direct.

Rhys and Will said: "Anyone who knows us will be very aware that we are not professional cyclists but we have began our training with a ride to London and a few 50km rides so fingers crossed! We will set off from Amersham and hopefully arrive at the Lake District within 3/4 days before turning round and heading back to complete the distance. We will keep you updated with regular video updates but you can also track our progress and see how far we've covered each day on this page."

Rhys and Will plan to complete the trip around mid-July, but this will be dependant on lockdown measures being eased and campsites being open.

All money raised will be donated to Street Kids Direct who work with children experiencing extreme poverty in Honduras and Guatemala.
