What has happened with your diabetes? Is it still a problem?

I recorded it as I had a late meeting so would be getting home later than normal. Look forward to seeing it tbh as I just think having a cycling programme on tv is better than not having one.

All the better if someone from here is on it.

I watched it tonight for the first time in a few weeks and IMHO it has got better since its launch.

Good interview gaz, great story told in a totally uncheezy fashion. You put me to shame, I started at 28 stone and have only managed to get below 18 stone... so far.

I tend to fast forward most of the talking and just watch the informative parts. Your interview was really good.

Last night was the first I have watched for a couple of weeks. It's definitely better now than the first few episodes. Not brilliant but generally watchable and some of the features are quite good.

Compare the feature on maintenance last night with the bit in one of the first couple of episodes on what gear you need when starting out cycling and I think it was pitched much better.

Likewise potentially great guests like Mercx and Obree were rather wasted in the rushed half hour format but last night's guests, while lower profile (no offence shrinkinbggaz) all got the chance to be interesting.

Cycling is a broad church and so different viewers will be interested in different parts of the show. I think I would rather have this show than nothing at all on cycling apart from coverage of the odd Grand Tour and the occasional appearance on BBC Scotland outdoorsy programmes.

I like the show. It has definitely got better. It lacks action clips of events but I wonder if there is a rights issue involved.
