Road Trip

S1E63 - Stephen and Raya are in-car podding. In the show: Bib shorts. What do you do with them when you aren't wearing them? Tandems; they should be better (i.e. faster) than normal bikes. Why aren't they? Rapha. Expensive, but brilliant. But is it? Stephen has caved in to its loveliness. Raya's not getting new clothes. She's getting new BIKES. A five-figure beauty is winging its way to her. And there's some life decisions related to cycling. I mean, isn't everything related to cycling?

Road Trip

Capital Endeavours

S1E62 - Stephen and Raya are back on form; they delve into the differences between sprinters and climbers. and reveal that pregnant women are the best athletes. No, don't pull that face, it's science, innit. Plus Velominati, fake news, and a kitbag that is borderline torture. See accompanying video - Raya's never gone THAT colour before. But our main topic today is about traversing the big city. Our thru London sportives are on show. R&S have been there, so you don't have to.

Irrigation and Irritation

S1E61 - Stephen and Raya Raya delive into the science behind nailing your hydration. There's a life 'sweat test' and two separate interviews with the experts behind the science. Cool huh? But we find how people test the rules, and most importantly how alcohol was a regular addition on the pro tour. And of coures, there's a Velominati - which keeps the drinking theme going. Confused? Listen, you won't be. Also: listen out for a special Cyclist Pod discount code. It'll be worth it!

Irrigation and Irritation

The Review Show

S1E60 - It's the Review Show; every cycling purchase Stephen has made has been put through its paces. ONLY FOUR THINGS FROM NEARLY 170 ITEMS get the full Cyclist Pod 5 star rating. But which? Raya can barely wait to hear... the end of the list. Plus a Zwift 'home spinning' competitor and a particularly logistical velominati. And in deeper confession, Raya admits to being a bit of a recent Tour addict. Though Stephen's shopaholic status appears beyond repair. The fly whisperer strikes again.

The Review Show

Yoga and Ailments

S1E59 - Stephen and Raya interrogate cycling ailments, along with the solutions. It's a must listen for beginners through to the addicted. And established Yoga teacher and recent road cycling convert Cat Duval, explains (in quite impressively technical detail) the advantages to cycling of yoga. Plus bib short top trumps, surprise chamoix news, graphic references to socks and a Velominati that has Stephen singing. It's at 9:10, you've been warned.

Swimming is Sh!tter

ES1E58 - Stephen and Raya record their final overseas pod from the villa's pool. Which Stephen gets in. Cue the Pod's first live drowning. But don't worry, it's all about the bike. Swimming is discussed as a training tool, means of rehabilitating after injury and the effect it has - both positive and negative - on your cycling. Plus a 'jersey' focussed kitbag and Stephen tries out the Aftershokz; and we draw a line under the Velominati. Literally

Cycling Holidays

S1E57 - Stephen and Raya are all South and no trousers as they head to coast in shorts and shades to soak up the rays - and tarmac - of Portugal, where this episode was recorded, live from a cycling cafe in the Algarve. And in a move destined to lose a lot of new found friends, the best cycling destinations are announced... which might include Spain. There are appears to be some local rivalry. That sound you can hear is Stephen hastily putting his helmet back on. Plus Velominati and the usuals.

Kit, Sh!t, and Cycling (quite a bit)

S1 E56 - In another ram-packed episode, a still-croaking Raya takes us through some cool new cycling kit she's got her hands on, Some of it quite revolutionary. But mostly, they empty the tank. What's that, you say? Since Froomy (God bless his broken bits) decided to 'emtpy his tank' of all his at the end of last year, they've wanted to follow suit. Cue a 13 (slightly broken) hour ride. How far did they get? Dive in and find out. Plus Volminati and all your faves.

Aero

S1E55 - Stephen talks - and Raya croaks - bicycles. She's lost her voice, but still managed to fit in a training tantrum. Meanwhile, Stephen has gone mad and has bought something... unnecessary. There's strong pomposity from the Velominati, more (changed) details of Beat the Train emerge, and our main feature; Aero. We speed to a leading expert and a man making aero gains the domain of the people who don't own a wind tunnel. This is the episode that'll make you quicker. Can you afford to miss it?

Bike vs Train

S1E54 - Stephen and Raya, between laughs, tackle a wealth of cycling related subjects; Raya's most recent race. Where she almost drowned. But didn't. Bike branding: your bike frame, are those logo areas on no-go areas? And also, does the Velominati have an opinion on punctures? Yep. Plus; the bikes of the Italian mountains, putting pink in your cycling, and speeding on a bicycle. Can you? Is there a law? And finally, the pod's Beat the Train Sportive, with shambolic organisation. This is hopeless.
