Bike, the UK's only channel dedicated to cycling, is now available on Virgin Media. It launched in the UK on Sky in December 2015.

Bike offers a mix of live coverage, documentaries and original UK programming, all centred on bikes and cycling. You'll need the Virgin Media M+ service or above to get it.

You can find it on channel 552.

Its programmes are separated into seven categories: Travel, Sport, Training, Endurance, Women's, Mtb and Legends.

It's aimed at the UK's 5 million cyclists, including all levels of experience like leisure riders, racers, mountain bikers, commuters and triathletes.

David Bouchier, Virgin Media's chief digital entertainment officer, said: "You can't question the growth in cycling in recent years, and on our TV service it is all about people's interests and passions, be it more mainstream or specialist channels. We know there is a strong interest in sport from football to cycling so we're delighted to bring Bike to Virgin Media homes."

Richard Schofield, Bike's UK marketing director, added: "We're very proud to now be broadcast to even more UK homes with Virgin Media. We know that 2016 is going to be an exciting year for Bike and for cycling as a whole with the prospect of more sporting success at the Rio Olympics. Bike wants to be at the heart of British cycling. If you cycle, we know there will be something on the channel for you."

Bike launched in Italy in 2012.
