If I had to bet I'd side with Thumpism. Firstly the bottom of the wheels (where fixtures might be placed) are cropped from the photo. Secondly the apparent angle of the ground does not look natural with respect to where the wheels would be touching the ground. But who knows, maybe she did pull it off for real.

Ahh, well, my faith in humankind is bolstered. I'm a fan of hers anyway, so if she was actually riding, not just posing, for that photo, that's great!

Marilyn did not have to worry as there surely was a bunch of guys just off camera, ready to catch her if she falls off the bike....
I'd be in the front of the line to sign up for that job if I was around' back then.....

I don't have any pictures, but I do know Bill Walton was and probably is devoted cyclist. I read a few months ago (RBA?) in a short interview, that while at UCLA he had road bike custom made for him with something like a 71 frame. And the lore is that during his tenure here in Portland, when he wasn't recovering from some injury, he also rode fairly regularly.

Yup. I could have sworn someone posted a photo of him in this thread.

Man, I used to love the carry on movies back in the day. That one just wasn't the same without Sid James though.
