David Olle of Topbike Tours in Melbourne has signed a deal with local television network Channel 31, to produce a weekly show ‘Cycling Sooty Park’. The show has a magazine format, featuring cycling in all forms and disciplines, from commuters to Grand Tour Riders, with an emphasis on fashion, fun and the lighter side of cycling.
The show, which will commence in January 2006, will also see the return of the Rollers competition that used to feature on ‘World of Sport’ back in the 70’s and 80’s, although the rollers will be replaced by Computrainers, with digital readouts on screen. ‘Sooty Park’ is keen to have all the groups that ride Beach Rd (Melbourne) represented in the competition, i.e. Bay Riders, Bandidos, Pack of Aces, Brumby’s Group etc. They can contact the show by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0415 866 061.
