Hosted by Colin Murray - but the content's still a mystery...

BBC's Radio 5 Live is to begin broadcasting its first ever dedicated cycling programme, called BeSpoke, next month.

The programme, which will first air on the 2nd of November at 9pm, will be presented by Colin Murray, better known for his football coverage on the station.

There's a video clip from the first broadcast available here to whet your appetite; it features Liam Philips taking on the 'Chopper Challenge', the exact rules of which are not clear, but look like a timed chopper ride around an abandoned office building Manchester velodrome (thanks, commenters).

There's precious little information at the moment on what exactly will be on offer in the broadcast, but it's an encouraging development for cycling fans, and follows hot on the heels of the ITV4 The Cycle Show series, which a lot of you were rather unimpressed by.

We'll be back after the first installment to see what you - and the rest of the cycling community - think of it.

After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
