I also think that they should make LMNH cough up some cash so they can actually say where they are and not pretend it's "Their cycle cafe"
Thanks. As a non-Londoner, I didn't recognise Look Mum No Hands. I've now tracked it down and put it on the "to visit" list.

Do they film it live, or is it recorded?  It's not obvious to my untrained eye, and I haven't really watched it with that in mind.  If it's live, maybe YACF should pop down that day/time for a drinking session social meeting. ;D

There should be some sort of competition for the first person to get a YACF jersey on the programme...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I'd never heard of LMNH until a few weeks ago when I cycled past it whilst riding across getting lost in London. I was kicking myself when I got to Liverpool St and was told I had to wait an hour until I could take my bike on the train (  ::-) ) I could have spent that hour in LMNH rather than the grotty Costa Coffee place at LS. Idiot!
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

"Once upon a time cycle cafes were unheard of, now they're popping up all over the placeā€¦"  ::-)

Maybe this show should get people who've actually cycled longer than since the end of this year's Tour to present their articles.

There's something about it I couldn't quite put my finger on, and then Mrs PB said, "It's a bit Why Don't You, isn't it?"

Yes. Yes it is.

Ooh.  Hopefully the Russell T Davies episodes, with Ben and the sheep with the wellies...

I managed to watch about 5 minutes of the first one, and gave up, just couldn't stand it.

One of the good things about LMNH, is that their in-house beer is called Slag.  So, the challenge has to include getting a YACF jersey on camera, whilst drinking a bottle of Slag. ;D
Actually, it is rocket science.

Is anyone up for entering a YACF team for the rollers on one of these?

I like the 1 hour long format, it allows them to do the same number of articles but assign more time to them, thus allowing them to do them properly!

The 2 commuting articles were good and the interviews are getting better as they seem less rushed and forced.

I enjoyed it again this week and wasn't this edition longer than previous ones?

Yes, it's an hour now instead of 30 mins, hence my comments regarding this :)

The one hour becomes 45 minutes on replay, without the ads.

I thought much the same, and I enjoyed this weeks' show very much. I was very impressed by Rik Waddon - especially when he beat Dan Craven!

Yes... the half hour was only 23 mins.

It continues to improve, and the hour format made for more satisfying features and a more relaxed pace. Good guests this week again. It is reminiscent of 'Why Don't You...?', in a good way.

I really, really want a go at BMX now. And I think i'm slightly in love with Anna whatserface.

I think it's definitely improving, partly because of they're more experienced at it, and definitely getting into the swing of things, but also the doubling of the duration makes things less rushed.  Some of the interviews were put on YouTube as longer versions, and when you're cutting down one of the relatively few interviews that Eddy Merckx does, that's not a good thing.
Actually, it is rocket science.

I thought it was a bit London-centric and, sure, some of the features could be better but, hey, it's an hour devoted to cycling of all sorts on mainstream TV. Who would have seen that coming a year ago?
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.
