Cross-country cyclists run out of water

Police have rushed to drop water to two cross country cyclists 220km east of the Eighty Mile Beach.

The men are travelling from Alice Springs to the Eighty Mile Beach, with a water pump and filter to draw water from wells.

They made the distress call when their equipment broke down.

Police say the men are experienced and well equipped and are continuing their journey.
