Celebrities and bicycles

Lance Armstrong wasn't the only cyclist to hurt his shoulder in a bike wreck this last week. Matt Lauer didn't show up to host the Today show Monday morning after he ran into a deer while bicycling on Long Island. Lauer had shoulder surgery Monday afternoon to repair the damage.

Actress Demi Lovato and her younger sister Madison De La Garza enjoy a bike ride around Toluca Lake, California.

Another kind of celebrity is a missing celebrity bike: a one of a kind GT Golden Zaskar that's supposed to be a traveling trophy. GT is offering a $3,000 reward for the return of this bike.

Finally, the San Francisco Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission is taking nominations for bike commuter of the year. One "Bike Commuter of the Year" will be selected from each of the nine counties in the Bay Area.


  1. I love seeing pictures of celebrities and bicycles!! (Although I don't know who that first person is.)

  2. i don't know who the first person is, but her younger sister is on desperate housewives!

  3. I had to look her up -- she's a Disney Channel starlet.

  4. You don't need a $9,000 custom-fitted Trek Madone 6.9 Pro bicycle to dislocate your shoulder.
