For fun here are some Hollywood Stars from the early days enjoying their rides. Pretty girls on bikes (i.e.the bicycle girl) have been style icons since the beginning of cycling and helped to sell cycling to the female population as well as the men and Hollywood stars eagerly continued that tradition.
Here are some photos I was able to find online. By the way a great time to see the Hollywood Walk of Fame is to take a ride down Hollywood Blvd. early Sunday morning. The smooth concrete used for the sidewalks makes for good riding.
EXT. CORNER OF HOLLYWOOD AND VINE - DAY
Marilyn brings her bike to a slow stop before the sidewalk curb. She sighs softly then shakes her wavy golden hair from side to side while casually surveying the scene before her; light Sunday traffic, mostly church goers and families out driving at a slow leisurely speed. Waiting patiently for the light to change she tugs at the hemline of her very, very short pleated skirt.... somewhat satisfied with the result she bends over and reaches down to adjust her fallen Bobbi socks. Screech of tires!... slam!...Screech! ... slam!.... wham!...car after car piles up in the intersection.
(Surprised,her mouth forming a perfect circle)
Bombshell on a bomber bike!
Audrey Hepburn - pure cycle chic
Ava Gardner - so beautiful in person she stunned men
Rita Hayworth and friends off to a ten mile bike ride and picnic - simple pleasures work for celebrities too.
