England Rugby fans set off on epic cycle ride to Japan

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Two rugby fans and amateur cyclists dubbed 'The Hairy Handlebars' set off on their epic 6,000 mile journey from London to Tokyo on Thursday (March 21) to raise money for charity.

George Cullen, 25, and Ben Cook, 24, are aiming to arrive in Japan in time to watch the Rugby World Cup in September and will pass through 21 countries on their extraordinary cycling adventure.

Their route takes them from London's Covent Garden through mainland Europe, following the Danube River to Istanbul, then on to Aktau, Kazakhstan in Central Asia before arriving in Tokyo in six months' time.

The duo will tackle this enormous trip self sufficient, with nothing more than their bikes, tents and equipment and hope to raise tens of thousands of pounds for charities supporting men's health.
