The cycling podcast for cycling enthusiasts who prefer a latte to pralmorelin dihydrochloride. All the fun, hobby, and social side to cycling, with news, articles, interviews, and minimal drug-crazed Strava-obsessed testosterone. With hosts triathlete @rayahubbell and comedian @stephencgrant. Sponsored by dhb - Don't hold back!

This show, like us, goes out as frequently as possible, but may be delayed due to weather, illness, or an inability to self-motivate.

Raya and Stephen are back in a celebration of the mankind's greatest invention. No it really is, did you not know that? Steve Jobs worked it out. He said that 'computers are the bicycles of the mind', which makes bicycles the computers of the body. Erm. Actually we'll get back to you on that.

Anyway, it's another jam packed podcast. Yes, we're not that frequent right now (we are BUSY!) but we still pack them in when we do them. So we cover two main subjects in just the one podcast, with...

Naming conventions. Does your bike have a name. SHOULD your bike have a name? And where does it come from. And is it an it, or a girl or a boy? And has somebody cleverer than us already answered that? Almost definitely. Let's not forget, bikes are our babies. So Raya won't hard a nasty word said about them, protective bike mum that she is.

And then! Another major topic. Mountain biking - when you do it competitively, where do you go next? Paul Davies - who has done exactly that - has the answer(s). He's our main interview.

And added to all that, is details of our first ever Cyclist Pod ride out! "BEAT THE TRAIN" will be on Sunday June 16th and start in East Anglia (ish) and end in Sussex (ish). It'll involve a train. Or more likely than that, a bus replacement service. Listen for details.

Anyway, Raya and Stephen hope you enjoy it. Throw your hands up in the air!!! Or maybe don't. Because the Velominati has something to say about that. In fact, we've got something to say about the Velominati - including our new challenge to break as many rules as possible.

We've got our naughty helmets on, and this show is all the better for it.
