    Farewell Parts, Resolutions, and 3 Kilos

    Farewell Parts, Resolutions, and 3 Kilos

    Woooah, so... where have they been? Well, due to the lag between recordings and publishing, you'll have to wait until show 91 (ninety one!) to find out, but in this episode Stephen and Raya autopsy the 2nd lockdown and how the cycling world has gone nuts. And bolts. And stems, cogs, pins, derailleurs... they've all gone. It's the great parts shortage and we're only a few weeks from fist fighting in the aisles of Evans Cycles for a brake cable.
    We review the New Year's Resolutions we have made (in hope more than expectation) and we hit you with a surefire way to lose 3kilos. No joke - it's the best way to improve your climbing, acceleration and braking. This is why Raya is a top UK coach. Also: This is why nobody takes us seriously. You'll have to listen to find out.

    Come for the giggles, stay for the pro-tips.

    Infrared, Jealousy and Apologies

    Infrared, Jealousy and Apologies

    It's been a while, hasn't it? Which is why, like a grocery delivery driver who's beyond apologetic for missing the last week's package, we're turning up absolutely full to the brim of podcast goodness.
    So in one of our busiest and most jam-packed episodes, well, ever, we cover, in no particular order;
    Raya's new watch (yeah that Wahoo jobby, she got it before ANYONE, the jammy b*tch), needles (listen to find out), axles (also listen), and we put our tail between our legs and apologise for what can only be described as our most complained about innaccuracy ever discussed. Oh God we're sorry. Can you please stop complaining now? 
    But our main topic today - and it's a GEEK-OUT of Herculean propotions; is talking to Tim Brownstone, Athlete and Biochemist and CEO and inventor of the Kymira smart textiles collections. That's right, smart clothing. I don't mean a pocket to put your phone in with a little hole to put the charging cable through, I mean, actually clothing that makes you recover faster by making your body work differently. Witchcraft? Sounds it. But listen. It's genuinely beyond fascinating.
    It's a busy show. Want to know how busy it is? We ran out of time for the Velominati. RAN OUT OF TIME! Frank will be devestated.

    Dog Pics, Fog Trips, Dutch lips and a Deathwish

    Dog Pics, Fog Trips, Dutch lips and a Deathwish

    Don't let the show length fool you. Stephen and Raya are covering all subjects cycling, purist and tenuously related to the world of two wheels.
    Socially distanced as per usual; some of the subjects covered include cycling in fog, breaking spokes mid-ride, how our podcast strategy is ruled by dog pictures, and Raya's deathwish.
    Got cycling Christmas presents? We'll tell if you the're good or not. Are we the self-appointed authority? Yes. Do we have any reason for this? No. Stop questioning us, we're doing our best.
    Velominati wise it's all about the thrills of hills and pils. No, that's not a typo. It's a pun. Listen on.
    Certificiation-wise, we're a South American "15", so themes of a sexual nature are normalised but blasphemy will result in you being ran out of town.

    The Cyclist Pod are coronabored. As we imagine you are too, so we're aiming to be the antidote. If not the vaccine.
    Stephen and Raya are socially distanced as ever - and attempt some public service broadcasting to help explain what you can actually do cycling-wise during a lockdown.
    It's light and shade an equal measures in this pod, as we get to have an amazing chat with the incredible renowned athlete Claire Danson whose survival and reboot from a spectacularly horrific cycling accident is a lesson in positivity and courage.
    Velominati wise - we hit a big one - and come out of it with the only word anyone needs in 2020: Twatwaffle.
    Oh yeah, certificate 18, yada yada yada

    Look, it's Me or the Bike

    Look, it's Me or the Bike

    Love is in the air! Or the bin. The Cyclist Pod is back  and Stephen discovers his love of the bicycle has been cited in his divorce. Yes, genuinely.
    Cycle clothing when not cycling. We answered this 2 years ago. Nothing like an update. Have our views changed? Is it Acceptable or excessive?
    Speaking of which... the Velominati's back and things are going downhill pretty quickly. Which is the idea. 
    On top of all this, the kitbag is back in force. We're geeking out on new fabric technology and also, diving into the new dhb winter range. Is this a big advert? No, we've bought it with our own actual money. It's genuinely that good. 
    Ample compensation for a binned relationship based on a bike obsession, don't you agree?

    No Half Wheeling Measures

    No Half Wheeling Measures

    The Cyclist Pod attempts to provide an important public service: Letting the travelling cyclists know where, in these pandemic times, you can actually go cycling. Note that this advice is probably rubbish now thanks to lockdown 2. Grrrreat
    Anyway. Come for the advice, stay for the abuse. Raya's facing off to a double whammy: she can't head to Ironman Turkey, and the Velominati is covering one of her biggest bugbears. Does she lose it? Is this show a certificate 18? Damn effing right. 
    So Stephen's broken from lockdown overaction but he's gone to get a sports massage. A sports massage, it turns out, does not include essential oils, hot rocks, or Enya in the background. It involves being beaten up, and, inevitably, not being offered the kind of extras those other backstreet massages seem to favour so heavily.
    There's still some Raya spleen leftover so Garmin gets a kicking from both of our guys (it's deserved) and Stephen is asked to do an impression of Raya. How do we think that turned out?

Excellent PodCast. We don’t all want it all about the pro world. Light, funny and occasionally informative ! Im half way through…(late to the party) but can see that there’s no new stuff. Please come back!

When are you getting back in the saddle?

Great podcast, amusing informative and good company for dog walking, driving and painting. Basically those times when you’re not working but can’t be on the bike. Has gone dormant though— please come back!
