Ned Boulting’s Bikeology
MTC’s Jonathan Marks developed the concept of harnessing the nations obsession with bicycles into a live entertainment show with Ned Boulting almost by default… after an 18 date near sell out tour, it seems Bikeology is soon to become a new entry into the Oxford Dictionary.
Ned’s prodigious ability as a writer, author and broadcaster has seamlessly been extended into delivering a near 2-and-a-half-hour long show, where he takes an off-centre look at what it really means to ride a bike. Drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his 14 summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the cycling’s biggest names including Froome, Cavendish, and of course Armstrong.
The Bikeology inner tube challenge saw every theatre pit their champion against our own Stig, Sir Chris Hoy, and a feisty Chris Boardman for the fastest change and inflate in the UK.
The tour was sponsored by Exodus Travel, and 25 new dates have been agreed for a ‘Bikeology Recycled Tour’ in Autumn 2017, including the Edinburgh Festival.
