I read an interview with John Cusack. He rides his bike all over Chicago, it is his preferred mode of transportation.

Also, Mark Paul Gosselar (NYPD Blue and Saved by the Bell) and David Duchovny (X-Files) participated in a triathlon in Malibu. Both did quite well.

At risk of a [Moderator Removed: crude] I wish I was Michelle Pfeiffer's bicycle. :D

I see Paul McCArtney listed there, McCarteny travels with his bike and reportedly rides daily while the set-up goes on.

Samuel Clemens was big into high wheels.

I seem to recall hearing that Jessica Biel from 7th Heaven mountain bikes.

Rumour has it that the Wright Brothers had an early interest in pedal power, but were eventually distracted by the glamour of flying.

lotek 01-09-06 07:37 PM

wright brothers not only had an interest they were high end
bicycle builders. The most expensive and sought after bike
in the US is a wright brothers. There was another brand associated with
the wright brothers but I can't recall at the moment.

I understand that Cameron Diaz will be driven to the Oscars this year on the back of an Xtracycle (driven by the Prez of Xtracycle).

Also Teller (the larger ponytail guy) from Penn & Teller, rides a Wiz Wheels Tandem Recumbent Trike.
