Publish date:

According to Singletrack magazine, members of the Birmingham Wheels Mountain Bike Club will be part of this week's Channel 4 Embarrassing Illnesses programme, to be aired at 8:30pm.

Channel 4 says: "Male fertility is on the agenda as a group of mountain bikers learn how their hobby could be doing them more harm than good. Sperm samples are supplied to Dr Jessen, with one shocking result."
