Things are getting stressful for cycling fans.
The Tour de France is heating up and it's running in tandem with Tirreno-Adriatico, while the biggest stage race on the women's calendar the Giro Rosa is also about to kick off.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by all the bike racing, why not take some respite in some cycling social media.
In this edition of Tweets of the Week, we have some love for Sam Bennett after his emotional stage win, a bit of Christmas cheer from former team-mates Nathan Haas and Alex Dowsett, oh and of course Egan Bernal's dodgy undercut.
Here are just a few of our favourite tweets from the last week:
1. Bennett has skills on and (getting) off the bike
2. More Sam Bennett, just because
3. Is this what they mean by bunch gallop?
4. Tirreno-Adriatico, the most wonderful time of the year
5. Tony Gallopin has fallen victim to some awful thieves
6. The less said about Bernal's new haircut the better
7. 'Summary of the first week'
8. Cosnefroy has taken up interpretive dance
9. Well that could have been a lot more painful for Trentin
10. Max Schachmann bobbleheads coming soon
We'll be back in seven days with more gold from the world of cycling social media.

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.
