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

As we all know, cyclists and social media are often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in and around the professional peloton.

Here are some that caught our eye this week, including ones from Callum Skinner, Dan Bigham and Johan Bruyneel.

1. I bet this guy hasn’t even thought about his aerodynamic drag.

2. They do say imitation is the highest form of flattery.

3. When rice cake packaging gets lost in translation. Do you risk it?

4. A bit of fun with the reigning British champion

5. Now that is a national kit and a half if I have ever seen one!

6. You wait, this weekend one leg warmer on and one leg warmer off will be all the rage when you are riding through the country lanes.
