Movie Scenes Featuring Bikes

From films not specifically about bikes, e.g., Breaking Away, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Quicksilver, American Flyers, etc.

The "18 speed bike" scene from A Scanner Darkly features an all-star cast, and is based on a story by Philip K. Dick, though I'm not sure how much of the hilarious dialogue is actually his:

Blade Runner: At least two scenes that I can recall -- the swarm of cyclists as Roy and Leon are walking, one of the most visually compelling scenes in the movie; and a couple of bikes can be seen when Deckard chases Zhora.

Timebomb -- Michael Biehn's character rides a typical late '80s-early '90s mountain bike.

The Great Escape: James Coburn swipes a bike with a saddle way too low for him, making it look like he stole someone's bike. Every time I see that scene I think "Raise the damned saddle before you get caught!" But he gets away with it anyhow because James Coburn was a suave MF.
