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.

Stephen and Raya record the podcast live from the broom cupboard of a top UK cycling company. Not a joke. The acoustics are excellent and we may be back.

Various loosely cycling related and looser cycling unrelated topics hone into the pod's crosshairs on show 68: Storms have been ravaging the UK and we discuss what's possible - if anything - bike wise in those conditions.

Anyway. We take Storm Dennis and Ciara and raise it with 'Tornado Raya'. Is this a thing? It is. Listen up for deets.

In other news, we bid farewell to the Strava puns that have kept Stephen's social media ticking over for 2.5 years, and welcome with open-ish arms the new replacement for 2020.

But our main topic is one at the core of cycling. Rule 5 is the root of the Velominati's powers. Today we tackle the spiritual, philosophical, mental, mechanical and phsyical elements of Rule 5. And ask. If you are a cyclist - of any level, quality or ability; do you need to, at all times, harden the f*ck up?

Oh yeah, it's a certificate 18 today. Regardless of your land of origin.
