While pro riders around the world have had to adjust to life without racing and in some cases the ability to ride outdoors, indoor training has come to the foreground.

Many members of the peloton have flocked to online platforms such as Zwift, with teams holding races and ride-alongs with fans to pass the time, but it's not necessarily for everyone.

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.
