Not sure how much or often some of these people ride, or rode, but George W. is a big time MTB cyclist. I've read several articles and seen several videos of him doing rides with wounded warriors after leaving the presidency.

I have found a new respect for Patrick Dempsey lately. He's an avid cyclist, race car lover and seems to be a pretty good guy. He's got a cancer charity as well which makes him ok in my book!

GW was serious about it. Have read stories about secret service agents half his age dreading the cycling detail.
Einstein was an avid rider. He never learned to drive a car. He said he came up with the theory of relativity on a bike.
Robin Williams is said to have a bicycle collection on par with Jay Lenno's car collection.
Jerry Sienfield has been photographed on his bike many times.
The rest, who knows?

Bill Clinton and Lance Armstrong. There has got to be a joke in there somewhere.

This guy logs many miles all over the world on his bike. He is also active in designing artistic bike racks. Who am I.
