As the final week of the Tour de France 2019 heats up with the peloton sweating their way through the scorching weather towards Paris, fire tweets from across the cycling world have been flying about all over the place.
Without further ado, here are the best of the week from the likes Julian Alaphilippe, Chris Froome and Conor Dunne, plus many more.
1. James Knox with some sort of cycling/performance art hybrid.
2. The resemblance is uncanny.
3. One of the more bizarre Tour de France moments.
4. In case you somehow missed it, it's been somewhat warm this week.
5. Not necessarily the hero the peloton wants, but the hero the peloton needs.
6. Honestly, we could have just filled this week's TOTW with tweets about the heatwave.
7. Cracking scenes from the Col du Latauret on stage 18 of the Tour de France.
8. I'm not crying it's just hay fever.
Bonus Alaphilippe tweets (come on, he's giving us the most exciting Tour de France in years and his reaction to French President Emmanuel Macron was too good not to share).
9. Hard to tell which one of the three is having the most fun here.
10. With all the noise surrounding the Tour de France, Sunweb's Chad Haga brings some clarity to the proceedings.
We’ll be back in seven days’ time for more of the best from social media across the cycling world.

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.
Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and 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.
