The rest day of the Tour de France is a chance for riders to kick back and relax after a tough week of racing, resting their battered bodies before more pain in the week to come.

Oh, and it's also a chance for them to log on to the internet hellscape commonly referred to as Twitter dot com and dash off one or two pure fire tweets. So we've compiled them in one easy list for you, as I think we're all a bit knackered after that senseation first week.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
