I actually had no idea until maybe 5 or 6 years ago. And the way I realized it was a total fluke. I was looking up something on IMDB and somehow made the connection.

I have a place in my heart for Animal House. During the 2007 edition of Cycle Oregon we spent a night just outside Cottage Grove, and there were shuttles into town. Cottage Grove is where the homecoming parade scenes were filmed. If you closed your eyes and turned back the clock in your mind you could really see it. In fact, I took a photo of an old sign for a restaurant. When I watched the film again later I realized that you can see that very sign for a split second. It as still there after all those decades.

A lot of Kevin Bacon's bike riding in Quicksilver was actually done by a stunt double (David Brinton).

A bit tricky with TA Jacques Anquetil nail-on cleats on a slick surface. Haven't thought of that, much less tried it, in at least 50 years.

I learned to ride a bike after learning to ride a horse. Do not swing your leg over a horse's head. Well, I guess you could do it once ...

In that video that stunt biker has a really wild seat (no, on the bike)

What is it??? Looks like a Brooks after using something "other than Proofhide", but seriously???

Not a lot of videotaping going on in 1965. But it's not that hard to do. Try it while riding on dirt or grass to start with. As I said, kick one pedal forward at the top of the stroke while swinging your other foot down to the ground; at the same time, let go of the handlebars and grab the saddle with one hand. Won't take you more than a couple of tries to get it down.

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas.

A looper?

A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock.

It’s easy to grin
When your ship comes in
And you’ve got the stock market beat
But the man who’s worth while
Is the man who can smile
When his shorts aren’t too tight in the seat
