Most famous movie bicycle scene

I figure it is...

Miss Almira Gulch riding a bicycle in The Wizard of Oz.

Should this not be in a different forum? It's not like all cycling in films is road cycling. Mods?

Yeah, you're right. Maybe it should be in General Cycling Discussion. Perhaps the mods can move it.

Seeing the Youtube video, I must admit that Miss Etta Place has definite advantages over Miss Almira Grinch.

If we're talking road bikes, the 30, 40, 50 mph motorpacing scene from Breaking Away is my pick.

Probably the highly accurate Alamo basement scene in the highly regarded Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

For road bikes...Breaking Away, for bikes in general it's hard to top how famous the scene from E.T. is.

Someone said I reminded them of this riding my old Rudge the other day and was thinking I also have space on my bars for a beautiful lady...

This gets my vote for that alone.

I swear I was the only person that avidly watched this show.

Unfortunately I am not a Neilson family so it never got famous.
