    Flying Scotsman - the story about Graeme O'Bree. Held the 1-hour record in cycling in the 90's.
    Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world. Imagine, they can even have cupholders...

    This subject has been covered often.

    http://www.massbike.org/2009/10/07/bicycle-movies/

    "Burn After Reading" shows Brad Pitt as someone who prefers his bike to driving.

    And of course there is always "Peewee's Big Adventure".

    Here's another source for bicycle movies.

    I did a search on IMDB with the term bicycle. Here's what got returned.

    http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=bicycle

    Lots of little known films inlcuding 1955's "I'm No Fool with a Bicycle" with Cliff Edwards and Jiminy Cricket; and 2008's "Extreme Commuting".

    Triplets of Belville.

    Animated classic concerning the kidnapping of a TdF rider and his rescue by his Mom, the dog and with musical accompaniment by the amazing Triplets. Action on two continents and absolutely no dialogue. An inspiring work!

    It's unfortunate, but I don't think you can get RAD! It is known to float around the internet at times in Divx form, but that could be wrong in some circles.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    There was an old movie, 30's - 40's about 6 day racing. Sorry can't remember the movie or the star's name.

    EDIT: Joey Brown, 6 Day Racer

    Also, Dream Riders. Basically, a father and son try to rekindle their relationship by touring across the US. Saw it on Travel Channel and liked it.

    wasn't there a german movie "Emil und der Fahrrad" -- Emil and the Bicycle. It was a book that I read in high school and I thought it was also a movie
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
