Photography: A blog of old-school actors on bikes? Yes please

I’m not sure how we’ve never come across this Tumblr before but no matter because our tardiness only means that there’s a massive archive of the ebullient Rides A Bike for us to enjoy. The brainchild of American film critic Steven Rea, it’s a collection of images of well-known faces on two wheels taken predominantly on film sets during the silver screen’s golden age. It’s also a book and an app if this fails to provide enough of a supercool-celebrity-cycle fix but as a starting point – if you’re late to the party like us – delve into this treasure trove of a blog and ponder this – nobody has ever looked as cool as David Niven on a bike (and nobody ever will).
