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
