If you're going to reference Laurel and Hardy on this thread, you have to include pictures.

Recently saw the 2010 doc, Bill Cunningham: New York. The Times anthropologist/photographer said this is his 29th bike. The previous 28 were stolen.

Excerpt:

"TO THE STREETS OF SHANGHAI" September 21

... We were taken downtown to the Sports Federation building to pick up our rental bikes, and those with their own had them ready to ride. The Sports Federation is sort of like the government's Ministry of Sports, and it was they who organized our tour, our interpreters and guides, our logistics, and our rental bikes. It was typically bureaucratic as every city and province was under the control of its own local Sports Federation, thus every time we changed locale, we changed interpreters, transportation, and bicycles. Thus I ended up using about five different bikes during the course of the tour...

Here you go, a whole bunch of celebrities on bikes all in the same film. This movie has me peeing my pants every time I watch it and kudos to LA for seeing the humour in himself.

I have some stories. I worked his detail for 7 years. It was a good gig. I went all over the US, The White House, US Capitol, Japan, UK, Mexico, Canada, Germany to name a few. Always something going whether it was official business or private time. It was a 24/7.
