Rides a bike

Loving this new Tumblr about celebs riding bikes. What fun! Now I'm itching to shovel my bike out from under the snow and go for a winter ride.

P.S. How cute were Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman together?
P.P.S. I love how Ringo always looks like he's twelve.

You are so right, he DOES always look like he's twelve. I never noticed that before, cracking me up this morning. I wish I always looked like that. Though I'd even take still looking like I was 30.

I was just thinking about how I wish there was no snow on the ground so I could go on a bike ride. Can't wait for spring!

thank you, karey! :)

I love it! And yeah, Joanne Woodward + Paul Newman = super cute and a perfect couple. I found a new respect for him when I read the book In Pursuit of the Common Good, which is about how Newman's Own got started and some behind the scenes stuff of the company. He really was a remarkable man.

Kathy said...

I was lucky enough to get Ringo's autograph in West Los Angeles in the early '80s! Although he looked fantastic then, he did look a bit older than 12!!

Ooooo I've been jonesing for a bicyle. That second photo! I moved to the coast 6 months ago and have daydreams of crusing up and down on a bike. (With training wheels maybe? My mom always said no one even notices ;) )

Love these. When my husband bought my new bike a few years ago for my birthday, I put my son on the seat with me and we went riding up and down the street, I was so thrilled. Hank snapped a photo of us whizzing by, all flying hair and smiles. It’s one of my favorites.

Cassandra Marie said...

I love that little kid on the back of that first one!

Ringo does always look 12...I had never been able to put my finger on just what that was about him...Happy weekend Joanna!

marissa said...

there's something so playful and human i guess, to seeing someone riding a bike! it's such a happy image! joanna - here in italy so many old old men ride bikes and it's hilarious and touching at the same time! i saw one yesterday on a little pink bike! haha!

Nuha Sofiyan said...

I love bikes, but more importantly I love vintage bikes! So so gorgeous and relaxing! I can't wait until we move to a house because the first thing on my to do list is buy a bike and rideeee!

that's jacques tati playing monsieur hulot in the first one, from the film "mon oncle" - if you haven't yet i urge you to see all of the monsieur hulot films, and the new animated one "the illusionist". they're really beautiful and enormously entertaining!

So darling. I'm renting a bike right now in Southern India and it's a big old claptrap of a thing with a giant basket and old-fashioned bell, and I WISH I could bring it home with me. Any recommendations for a modern take on an old bike like that? I feel a Cup of Jo bike-roundup coming on...

Pistachio said...

I just love the first photo. The man just cruising with his kid with a pipe between his teeth! Just hysterical. You always find the best things :)

i always love paul newman and joanne woodward. i remember seeing a bit of them on a gameshow where the guests had to guess who the celebrity was... something like that. but they were so adorable and playful together.
