Bike, the first channel completely dedicated to cycling, which launched in 2013 in Italy, is now expanding its coverage to the UK and Ireland.
Programmes will feature all aspects of cycling, from road to mountain bike, whilst mixing in BMX, vintage cycles, e-Bikes, fixies and cyclo-tourism.
The channel has included in its programming adventure races and the Mountain Running World Cup. The acquisition of live and exclusive coverage of races such as Tour de Suisse, Tour of Romandie and Gent-Wevelgem will be presented with technical commentaries by ex-professional riders. Other strands of programming are dedicated to younger generations with spectacular Red Bull contents, UCI Bmx Supercross, Downhill and Cyclocross.
Training and nutrition matters for cycling enthusiasts round up the channel's portfolio of content.
