 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. You'll be amazed at some of them.

The Velominati gets a full thorough going over; including suggestions for a definite rule 96.

 But our main subject is cycling events. Rupert Rivett has been organising Sportives since, well, Sportives were invented. We talk to him and discover why the easiest thing to do at any Sportive is clearly... ride it.

 And we learn the DEFINITIVE difference between a Sportive and Audax. Think you know? You're wrong. It's like the difference between a lake and a pond (where you're also wrong).

 Plus terrible accents, and unnecessary meanness about Hovding. Again.
