BIKE, as the channel is imaginatively titled, will feature highlights and live race coverage, documentaries, original programming and entertainment shows. While it is currently only available on Sky channel 464, further distribution channels are expected in 2016, according to BikeBiz.
Whether you’re a racer, commuter, leisure rider, mountain biker or just a cycling fan, the channel promises to serve up something for everyone each evening.
BIKE Media’s CEO, Filippo Mori Ubaldini, said: “Since we launched in Italy in 2012, we have seen tremendous growth and now regularly reach over one million cycling fans every month. The rapturous way that the UK embraced the Olympics and the Tour de France proved to us that the logical next step was to launch here and we are excited to now be part of the growing UK cycling scene.”
