Don't have pix of him, but Bill Nye is quite the endurance cyclist.

From the Redmond Cycling Club, regarding the Cannonball! (a 275 mile race from Seattle to Spokane): "Though the field is small, it has usually included the best endurance riders in the state. Nearly every Northwestern participant in the Race Across America (RAAM) has used Cannonball as a training ride. Bill Nye (a.k.a. Science Guy) has attempted Cannonball three times and finished twice."

Even if you spend all winter outside up here, you still get that nice zombie pallor from the lack of sun and having to be constantly covered head-to-toe in raingear.

He can be seen riding around the bay quite a bit.

I just wish he was still funny.

Apparently Dempsey looks like a Big Mac and the underfed female "star" of the show dreams about fast food all the time?
