JRA with Miley and beau

BikeIntelligencer‘s loyal reader knows how smitten if not disturbingly obsessed we are with cycling Miley Cyrus, aka Hannibal the Cannibal, and her cycling Ozzie beau Liam Hemsworth. The two are often photographed riding together because let’s face it, you can’t ride a bike in a black steel-and-glass compartment with tinted windows. So now comes this cockles-warming story about Ellen Degenerous giving the couple his-and-her bikes. Somehow it doesn’t pass the sniff test, but we’re linking just because it panders so shamelessly on so astonishingly many different levels.

Miley Cyrus the Cyclist resurfaces over and over … Tue, 09 Mar 2010 16:25:49 +0000

Miley Cyrus suddenly a cycling celebrity!

When we wrote about Miley Cyrus taking up mountain biking last week, we admittedly had a little fun with the notion of a ruthless cold-blooded serial killer being just the thing to spruce up mountain biking’s image a bit. OK, we got her stage name wrong. (It’s not Hannibal the Cannibal.) But we never meant to unleash a tidal wave of publicity on poor Hannah. Now it appears she cannot mount a bike anywhere for a pleasant afternoon ride without the paparazzi descending on her like hail pellets.

Separated at birth?

There’s just one thing we noticed from her photo. Besides the fact she’s a little chunky. The round face, the high forehead, the full lips. . . could it be? Could Miley Cyrus be the love child of … Anthony Hopkins?

News Cycle: Miley Cyrus on a mountain bike? Pedal-powered lawnmower, Bicycle Bob & more Thu, 04 Mar 2010 23:15:23 +0000 A pedal-powered lawnmower? Gotta love it!

I also love stories like this showing the human side of cycling.

This kind of story, otoh, is exasperating. The intent — an inspirational profile of a budding artist run over by a semi — is right. But merely stating “no charges were filed” falls far too short of journalistic responsibility. Even if Williams was not observing the rules of the road (it appears if he was, as the story indicates, headed downhill, he was riding against traffic), it’s worth saying specifically how the accident happened as a reminder and lesson to the public. Conjecture simply reinforces stereotypes.

Not sure why we find the continuing saga of the lonesome death of Bicycle Bob so compelling, but here’s the latest.

It turns out that the story about Miley Cyrus, the teen songstress known better by her stage name of Hannibal the Cannibal, taking up mountain biking was a spoof. We’re disappointed. Make that shattered. We would love to see Miley taking up mtb. It would be great for the sport, and would upgrade her image from that of a bloodthirsty serial killer to a Woman of Dirt.

Wait a minute, um … did we get that stage name wrong?

Monday Morning Roundup: Hannah Montana et al Mon, 02 Mar 2009 15:51:12 +0000 Well my opinion of Miley Cyrus has gone up. She and boyfriend ride to yoga class in Toluca Lake CA (not LA as the article states), and that can’t be bad. (Actually I’ve never had an opinion, having never heard her sing or anything else, so perhaps I should say, my opinion has been formed!)

Mountain View CA is officially a bike-friendly city. I just spent three months there and it has lots of bike lanes, it’s true. The most bike-friendly part is the sunshine! 75 degrees in January!
