Counting Stars OneRepublic
The aim of ‘Bike Some Noise’ is to cycle across the UK from Lands End to John O’Groats (874 miles) between 9am – 6pm on Thursday 9th of October.
7 stationary bikes will be set up in central London. These bikes will be hooked up to milometers and the total mileage pedaled on all bikes throughout the day will be added together to give us our combined total distance.
As well as being hooked up to milometers our 7 bikes will also be connected to an electrical generator. The electricity generated by the pedalling of the bikes will be used to power record turntables… and in turn ‘make noise!’ Each hour a record powered by the bikes will be played live on air on Heart!
We’ll have 22 ‘Bike Some Noise Local Champions’ from all over the UK. Representing Heart Yorkshire is Hayley Brown.
Hayley is a representative of Forget Me Not Children's Hospice. She is from Birstall in West Yorkshire and is 35 years old. Hayley's daughter Laila receives care from Forget Me Not so this is a very special cause, close to her Heart. She wants to help fund this amazing organization and would love your help. She has a tough challenge to do but with your help.
