Name of creator
In 1991, Alan Shiveral was the owner of a bicycle shop near Oppenheimer Park (Vancouver, B.C.). He was interested in creating a television program about cycling, as he believed cycling to have a positive transformational effect on peoples’ lives. He approached Ron Carver of the community station Vancouver East NTV, who in turn connected him with Vancouver television producer and writer Gordon Inglis. Together, Alan Shiveral and Gordon Inglis created “Free Wheelin’ with Alan Shiveral” as business partners (under no formal legal name). The arrangement of this business partnership continued 1991 to 1993, while the program aired on Vancouver East NTV.
In 1993, Shiveral and Inglis formalised their business partnership with the creation of Around the Bend Productions Ltd., with television producer and writer Jayne Akizuki.
