Raya and Stephen throw open the doors to 2019 and dive into theirs, and cycling's, plans for the year.

The events, the sportives, the training, the holidays, the imminent kit... it's all covered. Well, not all, but it's sauntered through, for sure.

This inlcudes details of the Pod's first ever trip overseas (well, Raya and Stephen cycling together overseas, specifically) and how you can get involved! (You can't. But if you listen closely enough there's enough details for you to stalk us. But please don't).

And a lighthearted chat about Park Run starts to snowball into a set of promises Stephen makes that will shape his 2019. Sadist BFF Raya is going to ruin him. Sorry, coach him. Still. Same thing.

Oh! And it's kit kit kit today! Proper shoes, proper pedals... and gloves. Oh the gloves. Listen out to one of our most favourite kickstarters of all time.

Also, a fairly innocuos Illuminati leaves our duo discussing superstition in cycling and making lots of unimpressed noises.

Finally, those noises turn to horse noises when some innovative laws to stop close passing by traffic are discussed alongside some fairly extreme, yet similar, ideas. Lights? Sticks? Defecating mid-ride? Check.

#BeMoreHorse. It'll make sense, we promise.
