Cyclists from up and down the country took part, with data from over 20,000 rides to work analysed to create a fast-paced track produced to inspire UK commuters to shun their cars, buses or tubes and ride their way to a healthier heart.
On creating 'Heartwork', Paul Hartnoll said:
"The first inspiration from the data I took is that the average commuting heartrate seems to be around the tempo of techno or fast house music – around 128bpm, which gave me a good feel for how to approach the production.

"I was also inspired to make the majority of the music and the rhythm out of actual bike sounds, sampling my own bike by playing it with bits of metal and bike pumps.
"Whether as a listener you notice that the song is made up of bike sounds or not, it"s there in the DNA of the track".
Adding to the experimental nature of the music, Evans Cycles
has also commissioned Alex Rutterford,
who has previously worked with the likes ofRadiohead
, to design the artwork for the single.
