Show 18 - The Track Day, aka My Kingdom for a 44cm Horse
Play • 1 hr 27 min

Raya and Stephen are proud to present their biggest Podcast yet (save THIS for a super-long summer ride). It's Show 18 and it features the Cyclist Pod's first 'team day out' - at the Lee Valley Velo Park, courtesy of, having a track day where they got to try the latest greatest bicycles from the big manufacturers.

And also the Pod features an in-depth interview with 3 of the key personnel, who explain the rationale behind these incredible days and how cycling journalism - and purchasing - has been transformed even in just the last few years.

Don't worry, this Pod is more than just two excited schoolchildren squealing about getting to ride super bikes. There's surprises everywhere as the bikes you thought they'd overlook astonish them, while the bikes you'd think they'd love left them cold.

That said, Raya needed a 44cm bike with 700c wheels, and seeing as not all manufacturers bring child bicycles to a high-status day like this, you can expect to hear some increasingly frustrated noises from Raya. It's worth the listen.
