    I liked the part in American Flyers where Alexandra Paul trades T-shirts with David Marshall Grant.

    I always liked the drafting scene in 'Breaking Away' where Dave is drafting, at 50 mph, behind the semi truck in the small front chainring.

    I liked when they were racing on a treadmill with a film screen showing the road ahead in front of them in the Triplets of Belleville.

    Pee Wee Herman winning the Tour de France in the opening dream sequence in Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I dig the eucalyptus trees along the Champs Elysee.

    I like the scene of the woman commuting home in the rain in Vittorio De Sica's A Brief Vacation. It shows bicycle use as perfectly ordinary and routine.

    Beat me to it. Liked the part about the trucker making hand signs telling Dave how fast he was going.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Check the "Breaking Away" clip on the drafting scene. Dave Stoller hit 60 according to the truck driver's hand signals (five fingers extended, then one finger extended.) He was over 55 and when the movie was made that was the national speed limit on Interstate highways, that is why the Highway patrolman pulled the truck over and Dave went around them.
