Well we're now in that familiar two week wait between the end of the Tour de France and the start of the Giro d'Italia...wait, that doesn't sound right.
After just a few short days off, and with the World Championships crammed in the middle, we're now on the eve of another Grand Tour.
While riders should have been busy preparing for their goals for the rest of the season, instead they've been doing their best influencer impressions on social media to keep the fans entertained - and we thank them for it.
Here are just a few of our favourites tweets from the last week:
1. When the Giro takes inspiration from the British TT scene
2. Nicolas Roche gets his excuses in early like a proper TT rider
3. The new Colnago is something a bit different
4. When your Tour Down Under stage victory is a little bit too memorable
5. Career highlight for Lizzy Banks?
6. Alaphilippe is the world champion of weird dancing
7. Wow this is scarily accurate
8. Yep, we're lost in the calendar too
9. Lockdown has plenty of hidden dangers
10. Not sure what to say about this one
We'll be back in seven days with more tweets of the week .

After gaining experience in local newsrooms, national newspapers and in digital journalism, Alex found his calling in cycling, first as a reporter, then as news editor responsible for Cycling Weekly's online news output, and now as the editor of BikeBiz. Since pro cycling first captured his heart during the 2010 Tour de France (specifically the Contador-Schleck battle) Alex covered three Tours de France, multiple editions of the Tour of Britain, and the World Championships, while both writing and video presenting for Cycling Weekly. He also specialises in fitness writing, often throwing himself into the deep end to help readers improve their own power numbers. Away from the desk, Alex can be found racing time trials, riding BMX and mountain bikes, or exploring off-road on his gravel bike. He’s also an avid gamer, and can usually be found buried in an eclectic selection of books.
