Former Colleague Surprises Matt Lauer On Red Nose Day Charity Bike Ride

On Monday, Matt Lauer continued his 225-mile Red Nose Day bike ride designed to raise money for children living in poverty, as part of the first U.S. Red Nose Day charity broadcast, set to air on NBC Thursday night.
The Today co-anchor, who is biking from Boston to New York City to raise awareness and funding for programs that help impoverished young people, has received support from passers-by as he documents his journey on the NBC morning show.
But he got a surprise from a former colleague during a stretch of Monday's ride in Exeter, Rhode Island.
As he checked with his Today colleagues back in New York via video, Lauer began talking about that day's ride when he noticed something off the side of the road.
It was his former Today co-anchor Meredith Vieira, dressed in a deer costume and driving a golf cart
