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 positive and negative - on your cycling. Does it make a difference? Huge, apparently, according to Raya.

It's another bulging kitbag too, with that old stalwart 'jerseys' being discussed, as well as Stephen's turn to try out the Aftershokz.

And it's finally time to draw a line under the Velominati. Literally
