A TEAM of fundraisers was expecting to ride rickshaws into London today ending a mammoth challenge in aid of multiple sclerosis research.

Three rickshaws, six bikes and 14 people left the Clifton Suspension Bridge on Friday for the ride to London's Tower Bridge. The Bridge to Bridge Challenge expected to take four days and was due to finish today.

Cyclists gather on the Leigh Woods side of Clifton Suspension Bridge before setting off on their Bridge to Bridge Challenge to raise money for a Multiple Sclerosis research project at Frenchay Hospital Picture: Dan Regan BRDR20120525A001

Money raised will go towards a research project at Frenchay Hospital that is looking at using stem cells to repair the damage caused by multiple sclerosis (MS).

The challenge was the idea of Kieran Murphy whose partner Maria has MS. She was due to join him in the challenge but has had to go into hospital due to problems with her condition.

MS sufferers have been travelling in the back of the rickshaws for the challenge, including Bristol and Avon Multiple Sclerosis Centre voluntary fundraising manager Shaun McCarthy.

Speaking last night from Slough, Mr McCarthy said: "We are very tired and people have put a lot of effort in but it's going really well."
