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.

* Recorded pre-Pandemic *

Stephen and Raya are both in podcasting towers, possibly for the last time in a long time!

Thankfully they are both in good form, and the banterbus is making regular visits to eachother's weak spots. Raya DNFing Ride London? Check. Stephen panting like a hot elderly dog trying to jump onto a kitchen worktop? Check.

But they're getting misty-eyed and whimsical today, because in show 75, the roots of your love of cycling are delved into. And why your childhood passion for the bicycle might determine your approach to two-wheeled frolics for the rest of your adult life.

And that then spills into cycling holidays; how they are responsible for so many people rediscovering two wheels and their long-forgotten love of bikes. Andy at Flexitreks has been rekindling those flames for decades, and we talk to him about the difficulties and pleasures of being a cycling-specific travel agent.

And of course there's the Velominati, some unnecessarily loud laughter, and a simpering homage to our show sponsor dhb. Love you guys, etc etc.
