I saw Walton riding at the Tecate-Ensenada that year. He sailed right by me on a climb. I was surprised to see a big guy climb that well.

I was hoping for the “missing nut” reply....actually he had a down tube shifter on many of his bikes. Some say weight, some say it was the ability to trim when climbing, but a lot of riders did it years ago.

This is the solution I saw on Felice Gimondi's private Bianchi when he visited the Mercatone Uno team for a nice shared bike tour around 2000.

Doris Day rode her bicycles almost daily and even rode them on errands. After a while, the locals tended to stop noticing and it only became a problem if she rode in a tourist prone area.

Actress Irina Dimik encounters a German checkpoint in the 1962 feature film The Longest Day.

Got a chuckle out how her hair style is so early '60's while the scene is supposed to take place in Normandy on June 6 of 1944.

Evidently someone making these decisions on the film crew felt the audience would not accept a 1944 hairstyle...

Can anyone ID her mount? Perhaps @MauriceMoss... That headlamp certainly does not appear to be in working order. Or perhaps it is wearing one of those wartime dimmer covers...
