Tweets of the Week: Peter Sagan's wonderful wheelies, Orla Walsh with a rollers crash and more

More from the wonderful world of cycling social media

It's no secret social media can sometimes be a dark and depressing place, but every so often you see a post that brightens your day just a little bit.

That's the inspiration behind Tweets of the Week - a bit of cycling sunshine in the darkness.

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.

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.
