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 haven't had the time to do a podcast recently. So they've done one, en route to doing a podcast. In the car.

Yes, the boundaries of podcastery are once again pushed back and smashed to oblivion as a road trip provides the backdrop to another bike-fuelled (though literally petrol-fuelled) natter.

On topic today; bib shorts. What do you do with them when you aren't wearing them? The question is not as bonkers as it sounds. OK, OK, it is.

And!! We cover tandems. Realistically, they should be better (i.e. faster) than normal bikes. Why aren't they? 

Rapha. Expensive, but brilliant. But is it? The myths and facts of one of Britain's most loved brands are discussed, first hand, by Stephen, who has caved in to its loveliness.

Of course, anything Stephen does, Raya can do better. She's not getting new pricey clothes. She's getting new pricier BIKES. A five-figure beauty is winging its way to her.

It's not all trivial though - there's some life decision going on too, all related to cycling. I mean, isn't everything related to cycling?

By the way, if you're listening to this pod in the car, and the road noise is too bad to hear us... like a bad break up; it's not us, it's you.
