Let's start with an answer to an imagined question. Yes, 30 per cent of this latest installment of tweets of the week is from the indomitable 'Cycling out of context' Twitter account.

Is this evidence that standards are slipping at TOTW HQ? That I have become workshy during these last gasps of summer?

If anything, I would argue that everyone else on Twitter needs to up their game. Stop posting about what you're having for dinner and your political opinions and start making GIFs of all the bizarre things that happen during a bike race.

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.
