Gladiator Russell Crowe takes the lane where he cycles, whether in Hollywood as shown below or around his home in Sydney, Australia.
When Sydney Confidential gossip columnist Annette Sharp wrote “unkind things about people smoke fags and ride pushies,” Crowe challenged Sharp to a 12 mile bike ride around Sydney.
Sharp rode remarkably well for somebody doing her first bike ride, especially one that long. View the Gladiator vs Gossip Columnist video here. I couldn’t tell what Russel was riding – it looked like something older and he has lights mounted on his bike like a true transportational cyclist — but it appears Sharp was comped a nice full suspension Cannondale.
Tip of the hat to Warren.
