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 listeners!) is delved into. We could have worded that better, we know.

And Stephen has his eyes opened to a neighbouring problem that only female cyclists experience. Sisters; we're with you. Guys: You need to know this. Like, it's ESSENTIAL.

And they discuss nutrition for training, when on holiday. There's always something useful in this pod, so there's that.

Also, a spontaneous kitbag-obsessed episode occurs, as the live opening of a cycling parcel leads us into a manner of additional discussions. As well as another Kickstarter cycling invention interrogated.

And the elbow? Well, this show travels slightly up from the elbow to the wrist, as we look in detail at the watch options for the keen cyclist out there. Should it matter? Probably not. But if you want to record metrics, with or instead of a bike computer (and smart phone!), this will be the episode for you.

Plus velominati, recent rides, Strava stuff, laughter, swearing, and enthusiastic ignorance.
