Adam Tomlinson helps raise more than 6,000 for CIN
Adam Tomlinson
A sign of things to come? Adam finds yet another unusual mode of transport

BBC Radio York's Adam Tomlinson took on his biggest challenge to help raise funds for this year's BBC Children in Need appeal.

Donning the guise of Jules Verne's hero, Phileas Fogg, Adam travelled right around North Yorkshire.

Adam didn't cross the county in '80 days', instead he travelled in '80 ways'.

Adam covered a distance of 400 miles in just five days helping to raise more than £6,000 for Children in Need.

From ice cream vans to skateboards, no method of transport was ruled out as Adam raced to reach that magic number of 80 by Children in Need day, Friday November 19.

Adam said: "Thanks to everyone who donated forms of transport and especially to all those people who helped raise this terrific figure."

You can check out Adam's mammoth journey on the below map.
