There's a lot of Belgian celebs that are really into cycling, but I guess nobody outside of Belgium cares about them

Good to see he dislikes cycle lanes as much as I do. Robin Williams I think is another one.
Yes, a long-time cyclist is Mr Belovsky. On an Australian talk program in 1990-91, the host, having heard the moderately-rotund Mr. Sayle was a cyclist, presented him with a new MTB. He was a bit dismissive, opining that 'It only has 300EX,' a reference to the mid-level Shimano group!

Yes his weight threw me off a bit. But then apparently his other hobby is eating at all you can eat buffets so it makes perfect sense. Must be a beast on the flats.

Jerry Seinfeld is another cyclists (owns a Pinarello) so I guess the green bike in the corridor was not just a meaningless prop.

But Mario Monti said to press that he likes cycling and he still remember the first race he saw when his dad brought him to see the Worlds in 1951.

Eric Clapton is supposed to own a personalised Colnago.
John Bishop (British comedian).

Apparently Mancini has popped over the road to the Manchester Velodrome a few times.
