It may have only been 15 days since Jens Voigt retired after setting a new World Hour Record, but the 43-year-old German has taken no time settling into his new post-peloton life.

After 17 years as a professional cyclist, spending most of his life following a strict diet, training regime and travelling  the world, Voigt has fully embraced the joys that not being a professional athlete brings. And he’s been documenting it all on his popular Twitter page.
