It has been a big week in the cycling world, as the Tour de France approaches and the British Olympic squad was announced ahead of the Tokyo games later this year.
While the pros have been busy with their preparations for two of the biggest events in the world, they have still taken some time out to share their thoughts on social media.
Cycling Weekly has been trawling Twitter and Instagram to bring you our weekly collection of our favourite posts from the cycling world.
