In 2020, the Retour de Ned marks the fourth chapter of Ned Boulting’s sell-out tours with Bikeology Productions.

As ever, this latest instalment decodes the nation’s obsession with bicycles via a live entertainment show starring the encyclopaedia of cycling himself: writer, author and broadcaster Ned Boulting.

The show takes an off-centre look at what it really means to ride a bike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to two decades hurtling around France in pursuit of the cycling’s biggest names including Froome, Cavendish, and of course Armstrong.

The Bikeology 2016 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 followed by 2017’s Bikeologist quiz which put an audience member’s cycling knowledge to the ultimate test.
