A host of top chefs including Dan Doherty (pictured), Simon Hulstone, José Pizarro, Pascal Aussignac and Gizzi Erskine are all set to take part in a five-day, 400km Indian cycle ride to raise money for Action Against Hunger in October.
Part of the Love Food Give Food campaign to help malnourishment among children, the journey will involve cycling through some of India's National Parks, including past some of India's most famous sites, such as the Taj Mahal.
The group will train together as part of the Action Against Hunger's help in preparing for the trip.
Francine Heggie, events manager at Action Against Hunger, thanked the participants and reiterated the important difference their work would make to families and their access to proper nutrition.
She said: "Without good nutrition, children can't develop, learn or thrive. We're extremely grateful to all the amazing participants, who will endure tough challenges not only on the cycle itself but throughout their months of training.
"Despite running fast-paced and high-intensity restaurant businesses, this will be an arduous prospect and one they have not taken on lightly - many are not regular cyclists, let alone ready to take on a challenge like this."
Despite both José Pizarro (of Pizarro restaurant and his Spanish tapas brand) and Pascal Aussignac (of Club Gascon) admitting to not having ridden a bike for years, both made positive comments about the trip.
Aussignac said: "The Cycle Challenge provides a fantastic opportunity for chefs, food industry figures and generous Action Against Hunger supporters to come together and make a real difference. I haven't sat on a bike since I was a child and so this challenge really excites me, even more so to do it with so many wonderful people."
