Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

Mountain Biking and male fertility

Posted by Matt | May 31, 2007 | Leave a comment

Channel 4 are running a series called Embarrassing Illnesses which focuses on exactly that.

It’s a magazine style programme where doctors get to show exactly why they get paid what they do, having to deal with some pretty rank conditions that patients have avoided facing up to for some time.

Although not technically an illness, this week Singletrack magazine have highlighted that tonight’s programme covers male infertility in Mountain Bikers with a feature involving the Birmingham Wheels Bike Park and Club.

If you want to catch it, the programme is on at 8:30, Channel 4 (Thursday 31 May). Mark and I have so far managed to demonstrate immunity from the condition but with Dave, I guess we’ll never know…! (Only joking Dave).

There’s more information on the Channel 4 microsite ‘Embarrassing Illnesses’ but be warned – this evening’s programme also includes an item on assymetric breasts.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
