Raya and Stephen take the show to the Midlands in Show 35, as our duo head for the NEC and the Cycle Show 2018.

And whereas the serious magazines are covering the innovations, advancements, and industry trends that will be key for the next 12 months in the cycling industry, our two did a bit of milling, grafted some freebies, and tried not to laugh at any of the knock-off Far Eastern brandnames. And failed at most of these. But there's a report, so that's good.

And importantly, both Raya and Stephen have alibis as to where they were when *that* trophy got stolen. It wasn't us. No, it really wasn't. But we've got some ideas who DID do it.

On top of that, the discussion takes more diversions than a Sportive through a warzone, as we discuss cycling superstition, if a robot can cycle, and (poignantly) what to do if you cycle over a landmine. No, we're serious. Well, we're not. We never are. You know that by now, right? 

And then there's the Velominati's take on having a sense of humour on a bicycle (no really), and a chock-to-the-brim kitbag which sees a welcome return to wanton spending. Well, welcome if you're a listener. Not if you're someone Raya and Stephen owes money to.
