Melena Ryzik covers the Oscars and other movie awards on the New York TimesCarpetbagger Blog. In addition to covering the red carpet beat, Melena is a general assignment culture reporter, covering film, music, theater, television, visual art, and dance.
The cool thing about her, though: her mini bio says: "She enjoys riding her bicycle to black tie events."

Thanks for the hat-tip, Richard. What I think would be even more interesting is to start a betting pool as to when Ms Ryzik gets sponsored, and by whom. Just one shot of her & her Electra (or Globe or whatever) at a black-tie gala would be worth its weight in PR gold.
You can see a (brief) YouTube clip of her + bike at http://ow.ly/HXxh
