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 Chris Hoy, Philippe Gilbert, Thomas De Gendt, and more.

4. I’m more of an Animals fan myself
5. We’ve got it on good authority that Trainspotting is Julian Alaphilippe’s favourite film
6. Great insight from Jakob
7. Thomas De Gendt experiencing everything the Tour has to offer
8. Don’t ride 60km with a broken knee cap, kids
9. Whatever happens at the Tour de France in the next couple of days, the 2004 Junior Tour of Wales will always be missing from Geraint Thomas’ palmarès
