    New bike show on Fox Sports

    I got a press release in my email, forwarded from the League of Michigan Bicyclists via my bike club about an upcoming TV show on Fox Sports, "Bicycle World". An excerpt:

    Bicycle World is asking for you take a couple of minutes and
    register on their site to show that support. There is a brief 10
    question form to register and you can even give input into what
    segments you are most interested in seeing. To register, simply go to
    http://bicycleworld.tv and click on the bottom Yellow "Support Cycling"
    graphic.

    By registering you will automatically be entered to win a
    new-lightweight carbon frame by Velo Vie, Maxxis tires, Louis Garneau
    clothing, Bicycle World schwag and much more. We will use your email to
    notify you if you win a prize and to let you know the exact air dates
    and times in your area.
    Might be interesting, and while there's an obvious marketing/commercial angle to all such surveys the chance to have input into a show before it airs could be of interest here. Looks like the show aims to be of broad interest to competitive and recreational cyclists alike. Specifically, if a significant number of us geezers take the survey, hey, maybe there'll be a regular feature on "Pie and the Mature Cyclist".

    The show is supposed to start in January and will be weekly.

    I have no affiliation with Fox. Heck, I don't even watch Fox shows much except for "The Simpsons" and "House" now and then.

    "People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman

    Thanks for the heads-up. If others are like me, I am so starved for biking stuff in January that I'd watch it even if it was pretty bad...

    As one of my favorite sayings goes: "You're only young once, but you can always be immature."
