The best social media posts from across the cycling world this week

Geraint Thomas (Instagram)

Another week, another series of tweets. We've got all of your regulars - Thomas De Gendt, Alex Dowsett and Geraint Thomas, who are accompanied by a smattering of David Lappartient, Nicolas Roche and Ethan Hayter, just to keep things interesting.

One can only presume that a similar series of tweets will be sent out into the internet next week and once again they will be collected here, and so on and so on, ad infinitum. Honestly, what's not to like?

1. Can't wait to see this terrain in the Tour de France in a few years!

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.
