Tweets Of The Week: Alex Dowsett, Lizzie Armitstead, Phil Gaimon And More

As we all know, cyclists and Twitter is often a fantastic combination, allowing the fans a behind the scenes look at what goes on in and around the professional peloton. Here are some of the tweets that caught our eye this week, including ones from Luke Rowe, Stef Wyman and Mark Cavendish.

1. Amateur hour for Luke Rowe1

Don’t you hate when you make yourself a cuppa, put it down to cool down. Then find it half hour later when it’s stone cold . Amateur !
