Way before I parked my butt on a two-wheeler, Hollywood biggies loved to do the same, whether in movies, for publicity, or just for fun.

The following images are from the new book Hollywood Rides a Bike: Cycling With the Stars by film writer Steven Rea.

Don't start screaming about which cycling celebs are "left out." These are the images he sent me from the book, case closed.

And if you can't get your ass in gear with that, then get on your bikes, you pert little pixies. Or just do your own book!

Bikes are fine for city slikers, but I would much rather ride a cowboy!

I thought that it was said that he flew the coop! Or maybe it was that he took the coupe to Grand Rapids, with his old friend Mata Hari?

That's character actor Sid Melton (hundreds of movies and TV shows) with Dodo and Widmark.

Gary Cooper's looking fine and lanky, as usual.
