It's the week before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature is stirring, not even a cycling team social media manager. 

Well, that might be a stretch, but as we enter the off-est of off-season periods, good tweets about cycling are a bit thin on the ground. Whether it's because of the lack of any kind of racing, really, or the darkness making it pretty unappealing to go cycling, but everyone is in their version of hibernation right now.

Here are some of the top social media bits and pieces that you might have missed this week while you were buying presents and trying not to think too much about the impending doom of the pandemic.

6. Not all former presidents of the UCI are as intellectual as Brian Cookson. This week, we are simply glad that he did not pick La Peste, also by Camus. Bit too on the nose

8. I ask myself this question at least once a week
