Claire Lomas, who was left paralysed after a freak horse riding accident in 2007, is visiting school children as part of her latest fundraising effort to raise money for Spinal Research.
Today she began a 400-mile hand-cycle ride from Nottingham to London, and she's visiting schools along the way.
She completed last year's London Marathon in a robotic suit which, despite her paralysis, allowed her to complete the 26.2 mile course on her own two feet.
This morning, after setting off on the bike ride from Nottingham Trent University, she stopped off at the Greythorn Primary School in West Bridgford, to talk to pupils about her challenge and show them the robotic legs, which she now affectionately calls Fred!
