    Farewell Parts, Resolutions, and 3 Kilos

    Farewell Parts, Resolutions, and 3 Kilos

    S1E88 - 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 of 2021. We're only a few weeks from fist fighting in the aisles of Evans Cycles for a brake cable.

    Also: New Year's Resolutions, the Velominati, and a surefire way to lose 3kilos. It's the best way to improve your performance. However, our method is, erm, controversial.

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

    Infrared, Jealousy and Apologies

    Infrared, Jealousy and Apologies

    S1E87 - Raya's got THAT watch (before ANYONE, the jammy b*tch). After Stephen stops grumbling, we discuss needles, axles, and apologise for the THING YOU CAN'T STOP EMAILING US ABOUT.

    But our main topic today - and it's a GEEK OUT of Herculean propotions; we meet Tim Brownstone, athlete, biochemist, and smart textiles inventor. Clothing that changes how you perform? Is this witchcraft? Sounds it. Have a listen.

    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

    S1E86 - Socially distanced Stephen and Raya cover 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.

    Velominati is all about the thrills of hills and pils. No typo. A pun.

    Certificiation-wise, we're a South American "15", so themes of a sexual nature are normalised but blasphemy will result in us being ran out of town.

    S1E85 - Coronabored? Same. So we're aiming to be the antidote. If not the vaccine. There's some public service broadcasting to help explain what you can actually do cycling-wise during a lockdown.

    Our main interview is 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 - it's a big one. We come out of it with the only word anyone needs in 2020: Twatwaffle.

    It's a biggy.

    Look, it's Me or the Bike

    Look, it's Me or the Bike

    S1E84 - Stephen discovers his love of his bicycle has been cited in his divorce. Tragedy or badge of honour? BADGE.

    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 there's new fabric technology to geek over and a winter range to die for. Not literally. But it's genuinely that good. Hats off dhb.

    Ample compensation for a bike-wrecked marriage, innit.

    No Half Wheeling Measures

    No Half Wheeling Measures

    S1E83 - pandemic killed your cycling holiday? No probs. We show you where you can actually go cycling (show recorded before UK lockdown 2, so advice now useless).

    Meanwhile Ironman Turkey is off for Raya and the Velominati is goading her. Does she lose it? Yes.

    And Stephen's gets a cycling specific sports massage. No essential oils, hot rocks, or Enya in the background, or 'extras'. Refund requested.

    Also Garmin gets a kicking and Stephen's asked to do an impression of Raya. Shots fired.

Adding humor to a very serious world of cycling

I patiently wait for each new episode to come out to check in on what Raya and Stephen have been up to. They are a HOOT together and make the very stuffy, and oftentimes overwhelming, world of cycling and triathlon an attainable feat for all, no matter the experience level. Everyone should listen to this podcast if you are even remotely interested in endurance sport, it will leave you with a smile on your face (and cackling to yourself in your car while you listen)!
