    He has a cycling series on C4. Pootling around with other comedians on his bike.

    First episode on 4OD. Easy watching.

    Saw the ads, might be a nice bit of escapist tv during these long nights.

    Wasn’t sure how it would be as I find him a bit hit and miss, but not heard anyone say they didn’t enjoy it, so I’ll add it to the list to catch up on

    Imagine being beasted by Richard Ayoade, the shame!

    Did anyone else notice that David’s bags all seem to be Restrap?

    No but I did noticed they were thanked in the credits

    In the same vein I caught an episode of Roaming in the Wild on iplayer where two friends cycled from John O Groats to Cape Wrath.

    Gentle programme with great photography – two series worth of this stuff:

    Enjoyed it – it’s basically Paul and Bob Go Fishing but on bikes…

    Suspect the upcoming Grayson Perry episode won’t be quite so genteel?

    Exactly how I described it to a friend. Food for the soul.

    Thanks for the PSA, that was most enjoyable 🙂

    Cheers! Enjoying it. The ads soil the easy-going flow, though, don’t they?

    I chose not to correct that typo.

    What Raleigh is David on, do we reckon?

    Very easy viewing, and very Whitehouse and Mortimer. The ads are annoying though.

    MrsMC is a Sussex girl and her grandad worked on the building of the power station at Dungeness, so nice familiar scenery

    I’m going against the flow here but I thought it was rather boring. I found David slightly irritating, and they didn’t have the easy rapport that W+M have. It felt too forced for me. The fact that they are on bikes should be interesting for me, as an avid cyclist, but there was basically no mention of the mode of transport, where they were, what they were doing. It was just a slow paced, slightly awkward interview in nice scenery. I don’t think there’s enough to make me carry on watching.

    ..but they are two slightly awkward, quirky people.

    I enjoyed it – never heard of the main fella but thought he was good; Richard Ayoade is great obviously! Also it was somewhat local to me so recognised a lot of the locations. Need to watch it again more closely & figure out where that caff is as it looked good 😃

    That was my worry – they both play that socially awkward persona which can grate with me a bit, but got away with it this time.

    I think some of the other guests will be much better, especially Grayson Perry

    Agree. Though the ads are easily dealt with by watching it on catch-up which is what we did.

    They deserve some kind of award for stringing out a 20 mile ride over a billiard table for two days!

    Nice enough TV, but may have been better as a 30min show, just to stoke up the tension 😂

    Yes, obviously, but it’s not going to work well for everyone. It didn’t for me, despite loving what Ayoade does.

    watched it before work this morning, definately my kind of riding and Ayoade does make me laugh so really enjoyed it. and I liked the gloves

    Agree with IdleJon on this one. I wanted to like it, but found it dull and not that funny.

    Clearly aiming to be a biking version of Whitehouse and Mortimer with the nice views and comic banter, but missing the soul and charm. Maybe with other guests there will be more chemistry.

    I kind of agree, it was a little boring and awkward. I’m a big fan of David O’Doherty, and bikes, and when he talks obsessively about old bikes or the Tour de France on his podcast it is usually funny and interesting (but maybe a bit niche for mainstream telly). His interview with Paul Kimmage from last year is worth a listen – depending on your tolerance for Paul Kimmage.

    Anyway I’m glad people generally liked the show and will be watching the Grayson Perry one for sure.

    Slow TV. I liked it as that.

    I thought it was an old Pioneer with drop handlebars mod.

    You weren’t watching closely were you, they must have mentioned Appledore about a dozen times ;o) Cake looked excellent.

    The fishing one is different as the 2 people have a long standing friendship so already have great rapport and camaraderie between themselves. I think this biking one is different people each time so that long standing friendship thing may not be as strong.

    The latest one with Grayson Perry was good fun to watch

    It’s on C4 catch-up now

    Yeh we enjoyed it. A very different feel to the first one, but still great and a breath of fresh air in TV land for me.

    That climb out of Hay looked wonderful, definitely gone on to my to-do list.

    Enjoying the show overall, just lacks a little something. Would have been more interesting to hear Grayson’s thoughts on the host wearing a Rapha lifestyle hoodie.

    Yeh I thought I saw the rapha label earlier and then it was taped over later.

    Already commented on the Guy Martin thread, but just as relevant here – 1 hour of Guy Martin followed by Grayson Perry, quite some juxtaposition! I think I’d like to see them do some telly together. 😁

    Also like that jacket O’Doherty was wearing. This one I assume. Shame they’ve got none of the more interesting colour options left at the sale price. He must have been sweating like Prince Andrew at a Pizza Express birthday party wearing it all that first day though.

    I think David would have less issues with his gears if he stopped dropping his bike on the derailleur!

    See they didn’t bother covering up Grayson’s Nukeproof logo, wonder what they’ve got against Rapha 🙂

    The same crossed my mind as well.
