Warning: may contain traces of pure fire tweets

(@junimba / Tim Ted Glenie / Twitter)

Halloween is supposed to be the scary holiday, where we indulge in all things spooky for one night. That was until the year 2020 came along and completely blew it out of the water.

Ghouls and skeletons? Try a global pandemic, mate. Zombies and Frankensteins? I raise you a crippling economic recession causing a lost generation amongst the youth.

Now we're talking, that's properly scary. Get Halloween on furlough pay ASAP, bit of apple bobbing and leftover trick or treat sweets as an alternative to eat out to help out. Sorted.

1. Oi Hollywood, buy the movie rights to this NOW.

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.
