Danny John Jules(Red Dwarf, BBC’s Death in Paradise) and motorcycle entrepreneur Steve Keys are back on the open road, this time accompanied by a novice biker, for the second series of their unscripted ‘travelogue for a difference’.


In Challenge 125, viewers see the big-hearted bikers dust off their leathers once again and set off on their Yamaha 125 bikes to raise money and awareness for Riders for Health, a charity that uses motorbikes to ensure vital healthcare reaches rural communities in Africa. In this series the duo are joined by a novice rider, who is shown in the first episode competing to pass his full motorcycle license and fulfill his dream of riding through Europe.

This time the riders have just £125 to fund their fuel, food and accommodation from Goring-By-Sea to Valencia. The tight budget makes for hilarious viewing as the trio bicker over the purse strings but despite the added responsibility of chaperoning a novice rider, the bikers’ infectious wit and camaraderie prevails.

The charming, spontaneous and hair-raising half-hour series, narrated again by Chris Barry (Red Dwarf, The Brittas Empire, Tomb Raider) takes viewers on the ultimate bike ride through the countryside in France and Spain. Although the trip definitely tests their mettle, it’s ultimately great fun. Viewers are given a behind the scenes look at their prep, witness their trials and triumphs and share in the laugher of an incredible journey for a brilliant cause.


The new series comes to Community Channel as part of the channel’s Do Something Brilliant campaign, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, to celebrate the brilliant, diverse and talented people across the British Isles doing brilliant things to make a big difference.

Challenge 125 premieres on Wednesday 21st May, 10.30pm (with new episodes the same time each week).
