What is Your Favorite Bike Movie?

My favorite bike movie is "Bicycle Thieves". It is an Italian movie from 1948 which is directed by Vittorio De Sici.

None. If I had the time I'd watch a few skiing and surfing movies that are on my list. But there are no bike movies on it.

Thanks for the link. I will go through the list and see if I can get any of these movies from the library or on line.

My favorite motorcycle movie is "On any Sunday". I wish someone would create a bicycle version of that.

Breaking Away

The picture on my DVD box is interesting. It is a picture of Dave, the lead character on his bike. The image must have been flipped at some point. The bike's drive-train is on the left side.

Yep, Breaking Away is about the only bicycle specific movie that I can remember.... and good to watch (unless you are Italian).
