Film critic Steven Rea’s new book Hollywood Rides a Bike: Cycling with the Stars is a welcome extension of his popular Rides A Bike Tumblr. The book assembles a delightful array of archival photographs of Hollywood stars riding or posing with vintage bikes.
The bicycles are given star treatment, with a bike index including manufacturers, styles, models and any special accessories. This lovely book combines Old Hollywood, vintage bicycles and gorgeous photographs of some of the most beautiful people to ever grace a bicycle seat. Fans of retro fashion can draw bike style inspiration from the likes of Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, Brigitte Bardot and Ava Gardner.
