This week's round-up of the best social media posts is a special treat for you on the first rest day of the 2022 Tour de France, and there's plenty to get your teeth into.
But it's not all just Tour-related content. With the Giro Donne taking place at the moment, and with lots of other goings-on in the world of cycling, prepare to be entertained.
From riders questionably attempting to display other talents - ahem, Mathieu van der Poel and Tadej Pogačar - to a botched podium celebration, to a brilliant Grand Depart in Denmark, we've got it covered. So get the popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the latest iteration of tweets of the week.
