How to ride a bike according to Derek

"Always get up" that's the key lesson for Derek as the final episode of series two airs tonight

It’s the last episode of Ricky Gervais’s comedy Derek tonight and, as well as going on a date, he’s learning to ride a bike.


Yes, it’s a big day for Derek.

Riding a bike is brilliant, isn’t it? It’s the wind in the hair, I think. And learning is especially fun when you’ve got this guy teaching you.

Sat next to a skip in an abandoned arm chair supping an alcoholic beverage is key, key, to teaching cycling* (*it really isn’t).

Derek’s main lesson? “Always get up”. That’s what Kev says anyway.

He probably masters it eventually. Probably.


See the final episode of Derek tonight at 10:00pm on Channel 4
