This week we’ve donned our lycra, packed our panniers and we’re free-wheeling through the language of cycling. Whilst whizzing on two wheels (Susie) or three (Gyles) we’re ditching the granny gears and aiming for the maillot jaune as we bring you up to speed on everything from Boneshakers and Penny Farthings to bonks, breeks, and RLJs, whilst hopefully avoiding an an endo.

As always there are plenty of questions from the wonderful Purple People to answer, Gyles has a delightfully witty poem, and Susie proffers three cracking words to try and use in a sentence this week.
