May I take advantage of an established break to make a point re the Giro Rosa? Those who would like to see more women's cycling coverage, this is your chance. Click on content, read and watch stories and reports, catch up on coverage.

I second this. If you see something you like, show that you like it! Retweets/ likes/ comments are the easiest thing you can do to show engagement πŸ‘‡πŸ» https://t.co/YKG5FH89by

I feel like I could add 50 more tweets to this thread but all I’ll add is: lighter is not always better. I was the heaviest I’ve ever been when I won the olympics, at my lightest I could barely get through a training week. Education > a number on a scale.

Instead of shaming kids for being heavy, why not look at *why* that is happening? A healthy diet is an expensive luxury that not everybody can afford. A small punnet of blueberries is Β£3. A multipack of crisps is pennies.

Quoted @JeremyVineOn5

Should schools weigh pupils to make sure they shift the pounds they've put on during the lockdown? Health experts want two weigh-ins in September and then in the spring to keep kids on track. But could this just create a generation of calorie counters? #JeremyVine https://t.co/ueY4K2v99u

I’ve seen so many professional, educated athletes not eat or drink anything for a day/s before having body comps done, only to celebrate a with a Macdonald’s afterwards. Weighing 30 kids will probably take around 30 minutes. Why not use that time for.. exercise? Cooking classes? https://t.co/lcgEZa1Z06

Quoted @TEKKERZcc

TEKKERZ was given the task of testing the new TARMAC SL7 in our own way. So we figured if we can escape a T.rex up a climb, gap one on a decent and out sprint it on the flat, it can handle anything. It’s one bike to rule them all. #iamspecialized #tarmacsl7 #tarmac https://t.co/uyIwxN6PCl

What happens when you give @Alec_Pedaler control over a bike shoot? This was a lot of fun to film πŸ˜… https://t.co/Th0pNba3pS

Word of the Day: CWTCH (Welsh; pronounced β€˜kutch’, rhyming with β€˜butch’) β€” a special hug that makes you feel safe in the world.

One of my favourite photos, me and Katie boarding the plan to Rio in 2016. The cycling team should have been travelling to Tokyo yesterday, but instead we did a live interview with @WeAreCyclingUK, you can watch here πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ» https://t.co/fV3yrfPEdM

As part of the @Airbnb_uk Olympic +para experiences festival, I’ll be running a 30 min workshop on mobility and pre-ride prep a few times a week. Ideal for anybody who’s upped their ride volume lately and feeling the consequences πŸ‘‰πŸ»πŸ‘‰πŸ» https://t.co/bRHm5rjqac https://t.co/XKMxQR9tju

Just *once* I wanna hear somebody say β€œI snoozed my 8.30 alarm 6 times, everything hurts. I haven’t washed my hair in 4 days because I’m just gonna put a helmet on it anyway. I have an enormous bowl of carbs for breakfast because I want to train well today.”

Why do all athlete day-in-the-life articles/videos start something like.. β€œI wake up at 6am. My hair and make up is flawless. I do yoga for an hour then have an egg white omelette and half a blueberry for breakfast before I start training.”

Why you don't say 'All Lives Matter' is the same reason you don't call feminism by other names ✊🏾 https://t.co/nSFdWcBTv8
