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 cyclist OR returning to it after maybe decades, is the order of the day.

Firstly, our new super-glossy sponsor (Cyclist Magazine, doncha know) is poured all over (we're still the dhb Cyclist Pod podcast, got that?) and we're keen to remind people of our editorial balance. I.e., whatever comes into our heads, without filters. That said Cyclist Magazine have chucked us an amazing deal for new subscribers. Check the credits of the podcast for details! (Also in this description. Just scroll down. Easy, no?)

But mostly, it's an enthusiastic ramblefest. In no particular order; How the pro world is taking to Zwift (and how the pros are having their ASSES handed to them by community riders), how remote working is changing the cycling landscape, the Velominati (natch), how to keep your sanity on a 5hr Turbo ride - and your bum shape; your other online cycling options (it's not just Zwift guys), our essential tips for new cyclists and... the shed bike strategy. Let's get that 12kg paperweight and return it back to what it is... the greatest invention of all time. 

And it's certificate 15. Astonishing, really. How the f*** do they do it?
