It's here, it's actually here. The Tour de France. We made it, lads.

But should it be taking place as coronavirus cases skyrocket around France? I don't know, I'm just here to bring you the tweets. Some, nice, innocent tweets that never hurt nobody. Allez!

1. This sort of thing is why some people are scared of dogs, isn't it? Now I understand.

2. Forget Everesting, someone do this instead.

3. Riders often find other careers after their pro days are over. Safe to assume Matteo Trentin won't be becoming a weatherman.

4. Just a man and his goats.

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.
