Another week, another set of tweets. Paris-Roubaix cancelled? That EF kit, still? Never fear. If anything even slightly moves the dial an army of people sit ready and waiting to give you their immediate, usually wrong, opinion.

Love, hate, joy, sadness, all sent out into the ether and burning through our retinas straight into our dumb brains, constantly refreshing our timelines to maintain the little drip drip drip of dopamine. Fun, right!

Having said all that, here are 10 of the best morsels of synthetic, social media pleasure to keep you well-fed until this time next week. No, you are welcome.

1. Wout van Aert will be miffed if any further races get cancelled and he had to go through this pain for nothing. Looks grim

2. Yeah it's sad Paris-Roubaix got cancelled, but there is still a Vuelta a España stage up the Tourmalet and the final time trial in Milan to close out the Giro d'Italia on October 25, so it's not like there's no cycling going on

4. Will this ever get old? No, no it won't

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.
