If you asked me, gun to my head, if I could eradicate one of either social media or Black Friday from the face of this Earth, I wouldn't even miss a beat.
Social media, hands down.
Bullying, racism, all manner of other bad -isms, people faking their seemingly amazing lives on Instagram and making you feel worse about your own, unearthing your uncle's very bad tweets...the list goes on.
Black Friday, on the other hand, is AMAZING. So many deals, so much capital consumerism it just gives you that warm, wholesome glow on the inside, you know? Hell, if I could add an Amazon affiliate link to my own mother I would. All hail Jeff Bezos!! Thank you big baldie for keeping a roof over my head!
Having said that, today I've been tasked with producing this week's social media round-up to set amongst the superior multitude of Black Friday articles currently sitting on our esteemed website, like this one, and this one and also that one.

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.
