The twenty best bicycle scenes in cinema, ever
10. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Don't try this at home -- unless, of course, Paul Newman is driving. In this endearing and whimsical scene from the forever babe's turn as a Wild West bandit, Butch (ahem) Cassidy breaks away from his partner in crime and their very man-on-manly action to seduce a lovely lady (Katharine Ross). In between adorable apple-snacking, two-wheeled tomfoolery and some scandalous leg action, the couple is serenaded by the unlikeliest of lusty lyrics with "Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head." (But spoiler alert: They don't.)

Despite the fact that Quicksilver received some of the worst reviews of any movie ever released and even Kevin Bacon called it "the absolute lowest point of my career" -- which, for Kevin Bacon, is really saying something -- it's still notable for its shocking accuracy as a hipster prophecy. Not only was it made long before fixies were even a thing -- it even predicted what the people who ride them would look like. Astounding.

Although we fully blame Napoleon Dynamite for giving us "the shading on your upper lip," a phrase we can never scrape from our minds, there's no denying that Pedro's bike is pretty... sweet. Plus it's got shocks and pegs. That thing is pretty much made for sweet jumps.
6. The Wizard of Oz
There's a reason Miss Gulch appeared later in the film as the Wicked Witch of the West: She really, really sucked. There's only one basket for this film's heroine and her "little dog, too," and it wasn't the one strapped to the back of Gulch's cruiser. For Toto, too, there was no place like home, but his just happened to be a bit smaller: the wicker basket strapped to the front of his pig-tailed, picnic-table-cloth-dressed, goodie-two (ruby) shoes, Dorothy.
