Here are our top picked tweets from the last week in the world of cycling

As we all know, cyclists and Twitter is often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in and around the professional peloton.

Here are some of the tweets that caught our eyes over the last seven days, including ones from a very young Alex Dowsett, a hungry John Degenkolb and a confused Mark Cavendish
