    What movies feature bikes or cycling?

    Before you blast me, yes I did a search.

    What I am looking for is a list of movies where there are scenes of someone riding a bicycle. Not in the background, not incidental, but a purpose shot scene with a bicycle or cycling.

    The obvious movies are, in no particular order:
    1. Breaking Away
    2. American Flyers
    3. QuickSilver
    4. The Triplets of Belleville
    5. The Flying Scotsman
    6. PeeWee's Big Adventure
    I know there are plenty more, I just can't think of them at the moment and I am asking for your help.

    Anyone?

    Just remembered another one

    City of Angels - Meg Ryan, Nicolas Cage - 1988

    Near the end of the movie, she is riding her bike on a rural road back to the cottage and gets hit by a car, killing her.

    I am probably the only person in America that hasn't seen Forty Year Old Virgin.

    Nope. There are at least two in my house alone who haven't seen it.

    Jackass Number 2.

    They ride penny farthings into a snow bank, intentionally sending themselves face first into the pavement.
