The most recent trend in the travel show is to attach a comedy to it and there are so many – some serious, some spoofs, some that are the dynamics of an actual scripted comedy and others because they were one big practical joke! Travel Thursdays have just got bigger as we are now adding a comedic spin on it where we are looking at the comedian versus the travel.

Today we are looking at a show that technically isn’t a travel show but has an element of some travel in it as he is hitting areas of Scotland. The three part documentary which has been recently airing on Dave sees comedian Ross Noble take on the ultimate biking challenge in Scotland.

The Scottish Six Day Trials is known as one of the toughest sporting challenges in the world and Ross who is a bike enthusiast has decided to take on the challenge in taking part.

The SSDT is held in Fort William and each day the contenders have to take on a varied set of challenges on a lot of different routes every day over the event. The television show sees Ross having to cope with some really difficult situations whilst pushing himself to the limit.
