Do you own a bike? And do you live in Los Angeles? Well, then you're in good company. A new book called Hollywood Rides a Bike (Angel City Press) compiles pictures of famous people riding their two-wheelers all around the city.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book includes shots of Bridgette Bardot, Humphrey Bogart and Jane Fonda coasting the mean streets of Los Angeles (or, you know, just messing around on-set, where no one will really get hurt). Featured bikes include "cruisers and roadsters, folders and tandems, Englishlightweights and the occasional trike, triple- and high-wheeler."

Get your bike on, L.A.
