Stephen and Raya have been at the nitrous oxide again, it sounds like, as the podcast goes on a number of tangents that make this one of the funniest, if least informed, episodes yet.

Of course, there's cycling in abundance; including details of Raya's most recent race. Where she almost drowned. No exaggeration.

And bike branding is discussed. Is your bike frame logo areas on no-go areas? And does the Velominati have anything to say about this?

And also, does the Velominati have an opinion on punctures? Find out. 

Plus; the hidden bikes of the Italian mountains, adding some pink to your cycling, and speeding on a bicycle. Can you? Is there a law? We cut through the bs to give you the ld. (This stands for low down. Is that an abbreviation? It is now.)

And finally - Beat the Train. The Sportive that continues to be planned with minimal planning. More details inside! That have now probably been superceded. That's right, ignore the pod, the event is now starting in Luton. This is shambolic. No wonder they can barely host a pod. What a waste of space.
