THE BIKE SHOW, is coming back on ITV4 soon.
I found the show a little “twee”for my liking. Any attempt at in depth stuff seemed a little lost by constant reference to what’s coming up and the bloody short segments, with ads as long as the programme.Posted 4 years ago
Hey-ho though, at least an attempt at something cycling-wise on TV, which is to be applauded.
Not all of us live in the conurbations and cities though, there’s a world outside.
Lattes and poncy specs aren’t for everyone. 😉
Technique, nutrition, maybe even a little tech stuff. Some rides, how to get the best from your old 26er maybe ?
It’s not the cyclist generally who needs a lesson in how to be safe on the road either and I’m about bored of the “war” now.
How stuff is made possibly and yes, things like the Guy Martin goes to Orange or Hope perhaps.

We’ve had the “Changing places” lorry at work today so cyclists can see the view from the cab and note the blind spots. VERY informative – the blind side extends a full metre further out than I had previously thought. This would make a good feature even for experienced cyclists, and is pertinent given recent deaths.
You could even let cyclists drive the lorry and see how lorry drivers ride 😈 (closed track obviously)Posted 4 years agoone_bad_mofoSubscriber
Well here’s the official word on what it’s all about – http://www.scribd.com/doc/146313466/The-Cycle-Show-2013Posted 4 years agoMrSmithMember
I think it should be more London centric and especially centred around Old st, Shoreditch, brick lane and the odd jaunt into the Surrey hills famous downhill ‘Barry’s out West’.Posted 4 years ago
Now the BBC has gone low-rent and moved to the badlands it’s time to remind everyone that London is where the TV talent is.
As a cyclist I found the first 2-3 episodes embarrassing to watch so gave up
Pretty much summed it up for me. Terrible, cringed.
The only redeeming feature was Anna who came across as passionate.
The pieces, the production- everything was amateurish but not endearing amateurish. Terrible dis-jointed flow too.
Anna’s brothers on STW- Leggyblonde.
Tonight at 8? I’ll give it 10mins then come on here and moan for 2 days 😆Posted 4 years agojamieaMember
AFAIK the Adventure Show still only gets aired in Scotland? Their strathpuffer and world cup features are always excellent, they could edit those down a little for length but otherwise use them as-is.
I’m sure the Beeb will love ITV nicking their productions 😉

I think the problem with the programme was that it didn’t really appeal to anyone. More hardcore cyclists felt it wasn’t in-depth enough (weak interviews with Eddy and Obree for example), casual watchers felt it was a bit too much detail.
It’s like going into Evans or Halfords really. Never quite enough of what you need if you’re experienced and are looking for something specific, a bit too much and too confusing if all you want is a bike.Posted 4 years agobuck53Subscriber
Hhhmmmm, hasn’t noticed before now that this is made by the same company that do the BBC Moto GP coverage.That increases my confidence as that has raised it’s game the past couple of seasons.
I was enjoying much of it by the end of last series, especially Rob Hayles’ stuff. Looking forward to this now.Posted 4 years ago
