Cycling channel Bike has launched in the UK after agreeing a deal with Freesat.
The channel, available as of this week, is the first television channel entirely dedicated to the world of cycling.
Bike offers live and exclusive coverage of many of the season’s top professional races, including the Gent-Wevelgem, Tour de Romandie and Giro del Trentino.
It also broadcasts a range of documentaries, entertainment and original programming, including Great Rides of Britain, MTB Adventures and City Guides.
Filippo Ubaldini, founder and CEO of Bike, said, “We are delighted to expand our distribution to millions more viewers in the UK, and are sure that cycling fans will love exploring the wide range of content already available on Bike."
“We will continually add to our offering, and fans can expect further exciting announcements in the very near future."
