Australian Story - On Your Bike (Doug Sunderland)

This program charts the adventures of an octogenarian motor bike rider who's suddenly become the centre of a social networking phenomenon.
When Doug Sunderland succumbed to the blues after losing his wife and being diagnosed with cancer, his GP told him to 'get back on his bike'. He did... and it 'saved his life', so much so, that he decided to ride around Australia solo, surviving on tinned food and sleeping by the road.
Then, unexpectedly, the 85 year old was befriended by young bike rider Kris Growcott who started a Facebook page to rally support for the veteran. Suddenly fans were joining up in their hundreds and, for Doug Sunderland, everything changed in the most delightful way.
