Adventurers James Cracknell and Ben Fogle

James Cracknell and Ben Fogle will pedal the heroic Major Phil Packer 450 miles across Britain to the Pride of Britain awards in support of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association. Olympic rower and gold medalist Cracknell and TV presenter Fogle have raced across the Atlantic and the Antarctic together. This trip will not be a toddle as they have to arrive in London with Major Packer in their pedicab in time for the award ceremony Monday night. Major Packer received a spinal cord injury in Iraq. But he has managed to complete the London Marathon and he has raised more than £1 million to help injured members of the Armed Forces. Fill their baskets here.
