Rickshaw ride is put on hold.

RICKSHAW riders Fiona Lees-Millais and Nic Manners have pulled out of a marathon pre-Easter charity voyage in Indonesia.

But the intrepid duo will be raring to go again later in the year - in either India or Peru.

Fiona, 50, from Haltwhistle, Northumberland, is going into hospital for a hip operation after a minor accident.

And that means she and Nic, from Northamptonshire, have put the brakes on the planned 3,000-mile March ride from Bali to Sumatra on a motorised rickshaw.

The fearless ladies recruited The Journal's help to invite worthy causes for sponsorship, and together they chose Alzheimer's Research.

Fiona, who last year completed a similar rickshaw ride across India, said: "My co-pilot and I have had to pull out of the Indonesian Rickshaw Run (now called the Bajai Rally) in March.

"But The Adventurists organise other mad trips throughout the year, so we are going to transfer onto another one."

Candidates include the Shillong-to-Jaisalmer route through India, and the Cucco-to-Piura Sacred Valley mototaxi ride across Peru.
