After the longest week in UK history it’s finally Friday and you know what time it is, it’s time for yet another edition of tweets of the week. 

The cycling transfer window is now in full swing, and we’ve seen multiple WorldTour riders moving elsewhere and the season of mud, beer and drama (aka the Cyclocross season!) will soon get underway. Mathieu Van der Poel and Marianne Vos are both the two big names expected to compete in competition this autumn therefore providing plenty of reason to tune in. 

Elsewhere, reverberations have continued to be felt throughout the cycling community at that new sponsorship deal as well as the sad news that team Ribble Weldtite are no more

In the wider world the soap opera at Number 10 has continued to unfold with shocking revelations. Since the news that UK prime minister Liz Truss’s time in power lasted less time than Dan Bigham’s hour record, we’ve had multiple cyclists throw their helmets into the ring to take over behind Number 10's big black door. 

We've also seen pro cyclists try their hand at football as well as have a night out on the town.

Once again, we have gone to the trouble of sorting through the minefield that is social media to pull together the best cycling related content out there. 

Happy reading!
