Chris, Carol, and a bicycle made for two

Children in Need
Chris and Carol find out how CIN helps young people
Breakfast presenters love a challenge, and we've set Chris and Carol a tough one for this year's Children in Need.

They already know each other pretty well, but we're going to make sure they get to know each other a little better.

Chris Hollins takes up the story...

It's a big night for Children in Need on Friday.

All the stars will be on show raising money. But where do the millions go?

Well Carol and I thought it would be great idea to visit two organisations in Scotland where money from Children in Need has made a difference.

We are travelling from Glasgow to Edinburgh, a journey of nearly 50 miles and we are going by bike. A tandem in fact.

We have been in training and we are ready to go! If you fancy cheering us on the map is on the breakfast website. You can see if we make it on Friday's programme.
