Tweets of the week: Peter Sagan, Mark Cavendish, Luke Rowe and more

They can take our ability to go outside, but they can never take our tweets

Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish

Time has become meaningless. If you are still keeping track of the days my first question is why and my second is well done you.

I gave up a long time ago. What even is a Tuesday anymore? What does Saturday mean? Instead, you can keep track of the passing of events by measuring them against when a Good Tweet™ occurs.

Ah yes, it's been six days since Peter Sagan posted a video of himself wearing a gladiator mask doing squats on an exercise ball while telling everyone to stay inside. Luke Rowe managing to put on 3.5 pairs of underwear in 10 seconds? A mere 45 minutes ago!

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. I'm 6'0", 26 years old, have a strong hairline and have an adequate amount of savings for someone my age. I'm very single at the minute so if you know anyone, hit me up.


Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab, reporting about students evacuating their bowels on nightclub dancefloors and consecrating their love on lecture hall floors. 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.
