Gettin' hitched 

But a cyclists' job is never done and Kwiatkowski was back out there on the road just six days later

...watching others get hitched 

Michael Matthews posted this pic of he, Thomas de Gendt, Louis Vervaeke and Jasper Stuyven at Tim Wellens' wedding. 

...charity rides

Chloe Hosking got married last off season (Feburary) but this year between art classes and bikepacking in China with her Dad, she managed to fit in the Tour de Cure. 

...garage sales for good causes

...a spot of D.I.Y?

Froomey didn't get this from his local hardware store. 

...signing contracts with new teams

...taking your kids to the BMX track

...completing Ironman triathlons

Because Adam 'The Croc' Hansen loves an endurance challenge

...messin' with elderly travellers

...getting new cars

...and 'rap battles'? 

Bahamontes is calling this a 'rap battle' but it's more like Astana's Laurens De Vreese 'rapping' and Trek Segafredo's Edward Theuns playing along.
