While she worked Off Broadway in New York City in the 80s, Jennifer Aniston supported herself by working as a bike messenger among other menial starving actress jobs. So says Wikipedia, this online biography, and this interview in Elle.
Wow, I wish Courtney Cox was my friend! Courtney bought her friend Jennifer Aniston a shiny new designer $12,000 one-of-a-kind Chanel bicycle after Aniston expressed an interest in hitting Los Angeles’ bike lanes. According to “a source,” “Jennifer said she wanted to start bike riding because it’s such good exercise. So Courteney sent her the new, ultra-chic Chanel bicycle.”
The bike features eight speeds, weighs 36lbs and comes complete with a quilted leather seat and saddlebag emblazoned with the famous Chanel ‘CC’ logo.
The source continued: “Courteney only sent Jennifer the bike two weeks ago but she already loves it! She goes out riding all the time.”
Actress Kate Hudson was seen Sunday riding her Trek mountain bike in Santa Monica, California.
Gossip Girls reports Kate Hudson was wearing “black spandex shorts and a cute tank top,” but she had a bag hanging uncomfortably in front of her chest with the strap wrapped behind her neck. Kate rides what appears to be the 2006 Trek 6700.

When the celebrities begin showing on bikes at awards shows, that will be some real news!
Another celebrity bike rider! From news reports:
Rialto Police Sgt Don Lewis said Rodney King told police the shooting took place while he was riding his bicycle in neighboring San Bernardino. King rode his bicycle home after the incident and it was not immediately clear who fired the shot, Lewis said.
Although the Chanel bike features fenders and a chainguard, Chanel last summer also introduced jeweled pant clips to keep your pants from getting caught in the chain.
