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 are back in podcasting towers (for most of the pod) with a special feature length show.

Recorded before the global pandemic shut down large elements of, well, the globe, Stephen and Raya talk flippantly about Coronavirus and how it might effect people like Raya who is immunocompromised (erk). Raya's ADHD, potty mouth, dyslexia also come into the fray. It's confessional time, clearly.

Also: cycling in the heat. The benefits, technique, and also - should you? No need to know how to approach this, we've done that for you.

Stephen's had another puncture which he couldn't fix. Cycling fail. What's wrong with the bloke?

And he's changed his system of Strava event naming to use cryptic crossword clues. Which he explains to a bemused and attempting-to-sound-interested Raya

And of course the velominati casts a judgy eye on the world of road cycling.

But our main topic today; we talk to the all-female team behind dhb's MODA range of clothes, who are rewriting the rule book on a very male dominated world. Making a cycling kit from scratch. inception, design, manufacturing, testing and marketing - it's all here.

And don't forget the super generous dhb discount code (25%!) mentioned in this pod. Along with what dhb stands for. We think. To be honest, we've left it too late to ask for sure now so we're just going to pretend we know anyway.
