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 eye this week, including ones from Geraint Thomas, Dan Lloyd and Fabian Cancellara.

1. Sam Bewley can’t believe that Orica-GreenEdge teammate Esteban Chaves is hogging the limelight at the Giro d’Italia.

3. Big Freddie Flintoff found some One Pro Cycling gear in his size.

4. Frank Schleck had a wild adventure.

5. You’d think that David Millar would have the whole airport procedure nailed down after spending so many years as a professional cyclist.

6. There’s no love for the hotels out in deepest, darkest Italy.

8. Bah humbug
