The Cyclist Pod - now with Cyclist Magazine special offer included! It's sunny - so Stephen and Raya are out. Cycling. OBVS. Though they still have time to chew the fat of cycling related lockdown observations... including how the warehouses of Europe are running out of cycling kit and what this has done to the 2nd hand market. Never repaired an in…
 
The Cyclist Pod - now with Cyclist Magazine special offer included! A socially distanced (60 miles) Stephen and an exhausted (cycled for 5 hours) Raya are back together (not together) for another post-Covid cycle fest. In this remarkably lean-on-swearing episode (certificate 15!! How is this possible?!) getting your bike fix when you're a regular c…
 
* Recorded pre-Pandemic * Stephen and Raya are both in podcasting towers, possibly for the last time in a long time! Thankfully they are both in good form, and the banterbus is making regular visits to eachother's weak spots. Raya DNFing Ride London? Check. Stephen panting like a hot elderly dog trying to jump onto a kitchen worktop? Check. But the…
 
* Recorded pre-Pandemic * Stephen and Raya are both in podcasting towers, possibly for the last time in a long time! In a very liberal and slightly near the knuckle podcast, our duo burn some bridges as quick as they build them. Cross training (as badly executed by Stephen) is examined, as is the sports that benefit from cycling, and vice versa. Yo…
 
Stephen and Raya are both in podcasting towers, in this show recorded pre-pandemic and before social distancing. In this feature packed show, our intrepid duo have their naughty hats on - very much certificate 18. We go into detail in Raya's new cycling related media jobs; and they're on screen too, so with the pod she's just pleased to be broadcas…
 
Stephen and Raya are still not sat across eachother and it's not because they've fallen out, it's because the 'rona is still locking Raya away and making the journey socially irresponsible. In this special Coronavirus episode - part 2 of a series of 2, Raya and Stephen start to see how cyclists, athletes, and the general public are adapting to this…
 
Stephen and Raya are not sat across eachother (for reasons that can be guessed, but you're not quite right) and are recording their first ever podcast remotely. In this special Coronavirus episode - part 1 of a series of 2, Raya and Stephen discuss how the virus has affected cycling, and how it will change the local, national and international cycl…
 
Stephen and Raya are back in podcasting towers (for most of the pod) with a special feature length show. Recorded before the global pandemic shut down large elements of, well, the globe, Stephen and Raya talk flippantly about Coronavirus and how it might effect people like Raya who is immunocompromised (erk). Raya's ADHD, potty mouth, dyslexia also…
 
Stephen and Raya are back recording at the podcast's country retreat (Raya's house) with a suspiciously tailor-made podcast. In that we are discussing that arguably essential, arguably immaterial step in the pursuit of cycling perfection; the bike fit. There are various systems out there that aim to get you perfectly sized up and sorted for your bi…
 
Stephen and Raya would like to welcome you to a new dawn of the podcast - or as we now call it, the dhb Cyclist Pod podcast! So please welcome to the arms of the pod our new title sponsor, dhb. Hooray! The guys and gals of this brilliant clothing manufacturer are making sure the pod is funded until the end of 2020. Of course, Stephen and Raya are m…
 
Stephen and Raya are still in a cycling company's broom cupboard, channelling their inner teens and talking sex. Again. That's right, this is the sequel to show 25 they though they couldn't make... but they did. Cycling and sex. The venn diagram overlap is looking bigger, and let's not even concentrate on the shape of it. And this time, we bring in…
 
Stephen and Raya record the podcast live from the broom cupboard of a top UK cycling company. Not a joke. The acoustics are excellent and we may be back. Various loosely cycling related and looser cycling unrelated topics hone into the pod's crosshairs on show 68: Storms have been ravaging the UK and we discuss what's possible - if anything - bike …
 
Stephen and Raya are out and about (once again!) but this time in Surrey - where a fully stocked gym hones into view. But instead of just getting a coffee and cake and watching yummy mummies doing Pilates at the speed of a glacier, they are put through their paces with Alice Tourell North, an olympian and top level triathlete. On top of that, there…
 
It's 2020 and with that in mind, Stephen and Raya are talking the goals and resolutions that will make you a better cyclist. Well, someone, anyway. Not specifically you. Thankfully, they're actually talking sense, as joining them in the studio is coach Will Usher to highlight those areas and approaches that will - shock horror - actually make a dif…
 
Wind! It's happening. So how do you deal with it? Stephen and Raya get to grips with that pressing subject. Except before they do, they discuss South America, how to cheat at Ironman, race/group riding etiquette (kinda), and where the hell they've been all summer. And then it's onto the big old cycling banana which is blustery conditions. Can we do…
 
Rumours of the podcast's demise are unfounded. Stephen and Raya are back with their most ambitious episode yet. And their ambition is far from amateur... as the self professed non-pro podcast can't help but dip their toe into the world of sponsors and impossible speeds, diets, and outfits; our duo are behind the scenes at the Tour of Britain learni…
 
Stephen and Raya have a mass catch-up in another packed ep. There's a lot going on as ever! Our chatty duo are all not about the pro world - but they're happy to discuss what that takes. And it turns out that Raya is pro in everything except the bit that makes you... well, a pro. From an athlete perspective, we delve into the differences between sp…
 
Stephen and Raya present another mammoth cycling podcast for you to tuck into. In this bumper length pod, Stephen and Raya delive into - and have explained to them - the science behind nailing your hydration. It's as eye opening as it is obvious. There's a life 'sweat test' from a bicycle show, and two separate interviews with the experts behind th…
 
Stephen and Raya present another cycling podcast for your delectation. A Zwift 'home spinning' competitor is discussed, and also Raya admits to being a bit of a recent Tour addict. But when it comes to addictions, Stephen's admission is deeper, wider ranging and more worrying. Stephen is... a cycling shopaholic. Because this is the review show; eve…
 
Stephen and Raya are back in podcasting towers, bemoaning a lack of aircon but looking forward to a summer of cycling delights. And as part of their on-off series of improving your cycling (is this a thing? It is now), ailments are interrogated, along with the solutions. It's a must listen for beginner cyclists through to the regulars. But that's n…
 
Stephen and Raya record their final pod from Portugal, this time sat round the pool. Which Stephen gets in. With no hint of an inflatable armband anywhere, adding to this Pod's sense of panic. But don't worry, it's all about the bike. Hence swimming is discussed as a training tool, means of rehabilitating after injury and the effect it has - both p…
 
Stephen and Raya are all South and no trousers as they head to the Atlantic coast in their chamoix shorts to soak up the rays - and tarmac - of Portugal. And not only are they not in Podcast towers, they are live from a cycling cafe in the Algarve. Buckle in for a logistical nightmare! As ever there's a Velominati and some kit news, and a quick loo…
 
Stephen and Raya have got a lot to get through, after doing their biggest ride, which was also a LOT to get through. In another ram-packed episode, a still-croaking Raya takes us through some cool new cycling kit she's got her hands on, including possibly the only acceptable (morally and legally) way to hear music on a bicycle. It's a must-listen, …
 
Stephen and Raya are back and are becoming eco worriers. That's right - they're worrying (well Stephen is) that cycling isn't maybe quite so touchy-feely to the environment as he thought it was. Maybe the only way he's going to hug a tree is by wrapping himself around it off a tight bend. Not to worry - Raya ups the ante with news of her Aquabike a…
 
Stephen and Raya are back with another feature length episode of the Cyclist Pod; and for once, despite their lack of knowledge of the cycling world, they can tell their arse from their elbow. Their arse? Well, that's because the world of saddle abrasions is discussions; as Raya, has, unbelievably, saddle sores. Her arse (that's ass! Hello American…
 
Stephen and Raya can't shut up about bikes. And here's 1hr15m of proof. Firstly, there's some extra info about the Beat the Train sportive. How is this Sportive different from all the others? We'll tell you. It's significantly more shambolic. We don't start where we finish, we give you an option to bail out, there's no food stops (unless you bring …
 
Stephen and Raya celebrate a half century of the Cyclist Pod with a bumper edition show; and if you ride bicycles (or even horses), this one is a must. In this massively drawn out podcast (and conversation), it's all about the terrain. Snow? We cover it. Riding huge organic beasts? We cover that too. Saddles both of the tiny triathlong shaped carbo…
 
Stephen and Raya appear to be on a mixture of helium and amphetamines as they squeeze a bucket load of content into the most packed of hours. In a nutshell: The Cyclist Pod sportive 'Beat the train'... unsurprisingly, has delays. Stephen still going to do a triathlon (he was hoping Raya had forgot), Strava news is BACK - and so is The Bike Price is…
 
Stephen and Raya go into a subject frenzy as British Cycling come into the crosshairs for what could be seen as a severe lack of humour. Details to follow. On top of that, this show's a maelstrom of topics; including * Expectations of the name Chris * The 'Pelotan' advert * Protein powders. Beefy ones. * The Velominati is DOWN * Lanzarote report * …
 
Raya and Stephen go from judgy judgy to matchy matchy as we delve into the world of cyclist clobber. From the practical, to the stylish, to the outlandish, our duo's chat is all wardrobe as cycling's most contentious industry is dived into. Not in any detail of course; the Pod isn't about journalism. It's about opinions that are at best guessed at …
 
Raya and Stephen take their advocate role as seriously as ever as a magazine article listing the 17 worst kind of cyclists is disseminated, interrogated, autopsied, and mostly ridiculed. Side issues from this lead to discussions as to if a Penny Farthing is actually the world's most efficient bicycle (it should be), and we touch on the BIG question…
 
Raya and Stephen hit the reset button as they go over the 12 fundamental habits of cycling; a great introduction to those of you who are starting out, and a reminder to those existing cyclists of the bad habits they have to avoid. This leads to some fairly hilarious anecdotes as our duo recount their failings in their early days of cycling. Worth a…
 
Raya and Stephen are back in a celebration of the mankind's greatest invention. No it really is, did you not know that? Steve Jobs worked it out. He said that 'computers are the bicycles of the mind', which makes bicycles the computers of the body. Erm. Actually we'll get back to you on that. Anyway, it's another jam packed podcast. Yes, we're not …
 
Raya and Stephen throw open the doors to 2019 and dive into theirs, and cycling's, plans for the year. The events, the sportives, the training, the holidays, the imminent kit... it's all covered. Well, not all, but it's sauntered through, for sure. This inlcudes details of the Pod's first ever trip overseas (well, Raya and Stephen cycling together …
 
Raya and Stephen are joined by car journalist and keen cyclist Ben Oliver as they decamp to the pub for their Christmas party. To keep things moving along, they start with two drinks in them (aka their usual limit), and things get ... messy, rude, offensive, and most of all, hilarious. Discussed, in borderline slander terms, are the Rapha sale, ove…
 
Raya and Stephen record their first ever podcast live, at Proper Cycling Coffee, in front of a live studio audience. There's a very relevant to surroundings Velominati, a muliti-player The Bike Price is Right (yep, everyone plays), and some news too. But this podcast is all about the 2018 Cyclist Pod Awards; where the key players in the categories …
 
As Winter draws in, Raya and Stephen aren't afraid to out... to an event, or 4. And Show 37 sees the podcast hit the road, and not how Stephen 'hit the road' when he had his accident blah blah snoooore. So, in this kit and feature filled episode, as well as our usual staple (that would be the Velominati, don't you know) we dive into cereal bars - w…
 
Raya and Stephen plough head down into show 34; and it's absolutely ram-packed. The competitive nature runs high as we contest just how many foreign climes both of our hosts have cycled in, and how that differs. And this leads into Stephen's recent overseas rides - on the Russian border, no less. And who let the dogs out? And what do you do when th…
 
Raya and Stephen embark on a biggy: show 33, in which we get the inside track on the highs, lows, and disasters of Raya's inaugural Ironman World Champs. It's not all transitions and exertions though; the weather, the food, the pre-race night out (yes really!) and the nightmare of a provincial airport trying to assign baggage and bike boxes to 4000…
