Jame Theakston takes on a 650 mile Bike Britain challenge!

Have you heard? Jamie Theakston is cycling an epic 650 miles across the UK in October for Global’s Make Some Noise.

That’s 8 cities in 8 days! He’ll get on his bike on Friday 4th October in Edinburgh… then cycle to Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff… before (hopefully) arriving in London’s Leicester Square on Global’s Make Some Noise Day, Friday 11th of October.

And here’s why he’s doing it:

“I’ve seen first-hand the real difference your money makes to the thousands of children and young people in the UK, living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. I’ve been to projects that wouldn’t exist without the funds you help to raise, and I’ve met amazing young people whose lives would be dramatically different was it not for the invaluable support these small projects give them.

That is what’s inspired me to take on the toughest challenge of my life! If I’m honest, it’s absolutely terrifying. I don’t even like cycling – and now I face over 12 hours a day in the saddle, up steep hills, along windy roads, in all weathers. Some days I’ll be cycling well over 100 miles! This will push me physically and mentally to my absolute limit.”
