So I'm hearing that TripleRush is being cancelled. With only 3 episodes out, and one mini marathon, I'm hearing that it's because it's too much of a niche and that only cyclists will watch it.
My youngest daughter made a good point that what about the Tour de'France. I mean it's the biggest yearly sports event in the world. Passionate fans scream at their TV's every year. Not all of them are cyclists.
The show is like Deadliest Catch for messengers. Are only crab fishermen watching that show. I highly doubt that.
The show realistically show 3 very different bike messenger companies operating in New York City. The footage is exciting. The riders do break some traffic laws, but in reality they need too, otherwise there is no benefit to using a bike messenger over a car service. The rules designed to keep auto traffic moving only limits what a cyclist can do. And the riders are not doing it just to be jerks and daredevils. In fact they are doing the same thing as other delivery services do. How many times have you seen a FedEx or UPS truck parked illegally, or blocking sidewalks, etc.
Anyway, tell the Travel Channel that you want the show to come back, by signing the petition.
