In between the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España , there is a bit of a lull in the cycling season, as people go on holiday, do other things like watch cricket, and generally try and enjoy life the best they can as the planet burns up.

Not that there isn’t cycling on, the Arctic Race of Norway, the Tour of Scandinavia and races like the, err, prestigious Circuit Franco-Belge. It’s also the time of the year when transfers are announced, which is exciting if that’s your kind of thing. I actually find it deathly dull, and don’t understand why someone would get excited about Tim Wellens moving team, but there you go.

So it might be 30 degrees outside, but some people have been trying to stay cool with some funky posts on social media. Here is a roundup that includes Marianne Vos’ no leaning reminders, a bird finishing second, and Audrey Cordon-Ragot having other things on her mind beside racing. 1. Alexander Kristoff might have won the Circuit Franco-Belge, but the ‘flyer’ who finished second caught the eye more
