Ahoy there, before we set sail on the good SS Giro d'Italia, it's just the small matter of this week's best tweets.
In seven day's time, we'll be struggling under the hefty girth of all things Giro. Tweets, memes, you name it, we'll have it, with bells on.
But for now, the simple things in life. An honest assessment from Rohan Dennis, perhaps? Or maybe exploring what exactly happened to Geraint Thomas' jawbreakers after he crashed at the Tour de Romandie will whet your appetite?
If not, Phil Gaimon posted some pictures of his dog. There. Hope that makes you happy.

6. If you could bottle up this unbridled joy and sell it you'd have enough money to buy Milan - San Remo and give it to Philippe Gilbert

7. Now if this isn't deserving of a Netflix true crime drama then I don't know what is

8. All I want to know is how long it took Phil Gaimon to make the dog pose like that (look at the sadness in its eyes)

9. When people complain that Ineos' mega-budget gives them an advantage all they're really using the money for is to employ someone to make F1-themed TikToks

10. If they're on the Tour of Britain this year just wait until they get to Warrington, that's all I'm saying
Staying at the @juventusfcen team hotel for the start of the @giroditalia. 2 Italians in the team & if anything is wrong with the hotel the response is(insert strong Italian accent & hand gestures) “typical juventus” Safe to say they’re not fans, no matter how nice the hotelMay 5, 2021

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.

If you don't have a clue how many gears your bike has - let alone how to use them - we've got you covered with this simple explainer. For more depth, just keep on reading!
