    Anyone know how I can get hold of a copy in Australia without paying American dollars for it. Things like this take ten years to get here and I'm fed up with this country treating cycling as an onerous pastime. I wanna get me this DVD!!!

    Pee Wee's Big Adventure!!

    No movie has ever portrayed a man more in love with his bike than this flick.

    Another vote for "Breaking away" That's a great movie. That must be pretty old. How young Dennis Quaid looks in that movie.

    my favorite bike movie is "six day bicycle racer" with joe e. brown. made in about 1940, it has a lot of actual track racing action and a lot of corny mugging by joe e.

    "Beijing Bicycle" is a pretty good one. Shows just how much a person will do for a bike, even a crappy Chinese one (no offense, anyone, those mass produced bikes are the same no matter where they come from....)

    There's an old South African movie in Afrikaans called "Geel trui vir die wenner" (Yellow jersey for the winner). I've only watched it halway but will properbly be on satellite tv again some time.

    Follow this link to the Internet Movie Database
    http://uk.imdb.com/name/nm0113873/ This is the Joe E Brown page. Scroll down to movie # 28 "six day bicycle racer" which was made in 1934. I use this site a lot at work.:D
