A group of friends from Hertfordshire has set off on a rather unique journey - in three wheelers.

The 8 strong team from Rushden are driving to the highest paved road in the Alps - in vintage Reliant Robins and sidecars.

It will take them 10 days to complete the 1600 mile round trip. They're aiming to raise more than £10,000 for local children's charities.

In the summer of 2013, the group, known as Tour de Lard rode 50cc mopeds from John O'Groats to Land's End to raise money for the Isabel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City.

They aimed for £10,000 and with gift aid raised over £12,000.00. LEts hope they do just as well this time!
