If you're not familiar with the guys and gals at Peloton Magazine, consider yourself introduced. Very few publications capture the pure beauty of the sport through print and digital media the way Peloton does, and its Instragram account is a shining example. They also post tons of pics of some of the coolest bike products on the planet, which certainly doesn't hurt their cause if you happen to be a gear head.

You won't find a more free-spirited cyclist in the pro peloton than Lachlan Morton. Morton raced for Garmin Sharp's developmental team before joining UCI America Tour team Jelly Belly-Maxxis. Born in Australia, his account (and his excellent documentary, Therabouts) serves as an excellent reminder of just how hard it is to become a professional and how easy it is to forget that cycling is supposed to be about having fun—not stressing the minutia of the sport that can sometimes become overwhelming.

Does a bike shop in San Francisco sound like a place you'd like to hang? Well, @mashsf is just that, and its feed can feel a lot like being a fly on the wall. From morning crew rides to lots of funny pictures of shop life, this account will keep you entertained and might make you want to apply for a part-time job at your local bike shop.

Every cyclist would love to travel. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or money to make it happen. If you like to live vicariously through another person's adventures, Jered and his wife, Ashley, are a good choice. Featuring some of the most scenic cycling shots you'll find anywhere, their travels and unique perspective of the world is something to behold.

Who doesn't love a good wheelie? This cycling enthusiast takes his famous orange cruiser (basket included) all over Asia to shoot some of the coolest and funniest one-wheeled tricks you'll ever see—perfect when you need something to keep your day on the lighter side of things.

Few pro teams will give you the kind of inside look at their riders the way @ teamsky does. And it doesn't hurt that they've got some of the best riders in the sport to snap pics of either—like former Tour de France winner Chris Froome (who's Instagram account isn't a bad follow either), Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas, whose personalities are almost as large as the watts they pedal.

If you collected baseball cards as a kid, you'll love @procyclingtrumps. These fun cards of your favorite pro cyclists give you all the vital info you need to impress the fellas on your next group ride. It's also a good way to introduce yourself to some pretty fantastic pros with major palmares (cycling term for victories) that you might not have been aware of.
