Star trek and cycling

Has any character in any episode of any series or any movie, ever ridden a bicycle?

Memory Alpha says http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Bicycle

A bicycle is a two-wheeled (one behind the other) non-motorized vehicle operated by the user sitting on it and pedaling to propel it.
In 2063, an man was riding a bicycle just before the Borg attacked. The energy weapons they used blew up a nearby building, and sent him flying off the bicycle. (Star Trek: First Contact)
In 2151, when Enterprise investigated the disappearance of the Terra Nova colony, one of the things they found left in the abandoned city was a broken bicycle. (ENT: "Terra Nova")
In 2374, Tom Paris jokingly suggested to set up a bicycle in the mess hall, attach a generator and pedal home, when the USS Voyager was forced to go into grey mode. He then "volunteered" Harry Kim for using it. (VOY: "Demon")
When Jonathan Archer and Daniels were trapped in the 31st century, Archer asked if Daniels would take a bicycle and turn it into a time machine. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II")

Are you competing in a secret contest to see who can create the most threads?

As I recall, there were a couple of Next Generation episodes that had bicycles being ridden on the holodeck.

Noticed >50% of the Star Trek movie goers last night were over 50. Doubt any rode their bikes to the show however.

Didn't ride my bike to see it Friday after lunch (although, if I had, I would've gotten home sooner.. lol).

Going to go see it again in IMAX tonight, but driving because my friend doesn't quite have the capability to ride that far without being all sweaty and nasty by the end.

And, no, I've never seen any of the characters ride a bike, not even on the holodeck. Practice martial arts, play trombone, live out sex fantasies, develop crushes on fabricated versions of real people, but never ride a bicycle.
