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 hit the reset button as they go over the 12 fundamental habits of cycling; a great introduction to those of you who are starting out, and a reminder to those existing cyclists of the bad habits they have to avoid. 

This leads to some fairly hilarious anecdotes as our duo recount their failings in their early days of cycling. Worth a listen for just the clip-in problems.

Tips and advice include where to get involved, how to go about getting into it, where and who with to ride... changing gears, changing tyres, and changing position... and joining clubs, and not overdoing it.

Plus! A welcome return for the Strava segment (not literally), a new kitbag category, and everyone's favourite - You Drive Like a Dick. Beware, crap drivers, we're back onto you.

Plus, as ever, the Velominati presents us with a rule that riles Raya to the point of explaining how she slammed a fellow cyclist on social media. It's a bit sweary, but you've gotta love that girl when she's angry.

Show 44 - it's a must listen for cyclists of all level! Though the 'must' bit is sort of a marketing thing. They're not going to literally come round and make sure you've done it. They've got stuff to do, we're sure you have to also.

(and listen out for the bonus bit at the very end)
