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.

The Cyclist Pod is back; distanced but never distant!

And we're speaking to Peter Walker; the author of the cycling book "Cycling can save the world". He also happens to be the Guardian's political correspondent. Cycling and politics? Does that mix? Listen and find out.

But now, an apology. This short delay was down to some noteworthyly major tech hurdles; firstly, Raya was hacked. Like, held to ransom. Big time. Top social media honchos, the police, everything. We've never known lockdown drama like it.

Secondly, our show had to be completely recorded after everything went AWOL. Hacked as well? No. Stephen can't work out how to use his new remote recording software and now it sounds like he's drowning. And if he does this again, then that's what'll happen when Raya next sees him in a pool.

Note: the interview with Peter might be a little weird sounding. But then if you've not heard Stephen before, then you'll think that anyway.

Hang on, isn't this a cycling podcast? Of course. So allow Stephen to introduce the best permanent British Audax/Sportive circuit. Open 24h, all year round, and it's free. Why isn't everyone doing it? Also, cue a money saving triathlon. We're full of ideas.

And there's a Velominati that blows right up in your face. No, literally.
