I've seen other pics of John (and fellow Beatles) on Raleigh DL1 bikes but recently discovered this earlier one of him.

Stoogeum is a bucket list trip for Stooge fans. Open only a few days a week during the summer but it's like the Trevi Fountain . You'll go back twice .

Yeah... and also, people who are celebrities precisely for being bike riders don't count as celebrities on bikes.

It's probably hard to find a photo of Jacquie Phelan where she's NOT on a bike.

True enough, but I think somebody that helped raise and manage over $150K while looking after/out for a bonafide cycling celebrity/ legend like Charlie is a celebrity on and off the bike.

There was one episode where he won a bike but had to hide it. Then there was another one where his new bike got stolen.

I binge-watched the last 6 hours on NBCSN. Awesome race. Had nothing to do with bicycles though.

But Marilyn is actually riding a bike, and a big wheel to boot.

That was a pic of Sebastian Bourdais a few years back. Regarding the 12 Hr. Sebring 2019, he was in the 66 car Ford GT. That's all folks..

Appears to be riding the ordinary. I'd wager the photo was staged or tweaked to show that. Hollywood, y'know.

They're not as hard to ride as they look. The big wheel makes a gyroscopic force that makes staying up almost automatic. I tried one once. The hard part was getting down.
