Other cyclists have joined Claire Lomas at the launch of her latest challenge to cycle 400 miles on a hand-cycle from Nottingham to London.
The 33-year-old from Melton Mowbray, was paralysed form the waist down in a horse riding accident in May 2007.
Last year Claire completed the London Marathon using a specially designed robotic suit.
But she's described this latest fundraising challenge as potentially her toughest yet.
That's because she will not only be cycling, but will also be changing into the robotic legs to give talks at schools along the route.
