Most of us learn cycling as children and then as we grow up, we gravitate towards other faster and expensive vehicles like scooters, motorcycles and cars. It is a rare sight to spot a grown-up riding a bicycle while commuting to office or using it as a way to exercise. Cycling is not just extremely cost-efficient and eco-friendly, it also keeps you fit. Cities around the world are also taking to riding cycles to curb the rising pollution levels. It is still not a common site on Indian roads yet but we, at Zophop, do what we can to make our country a cleaner and fitter place.
I had this friend, who lost 20 kilos by riding a cycle on all his commute paths. He would cycle all the way from Gurgoan to Hauz Khas everyday and to other parts of the city, wherever he had meetings. Goes without saying, my friend has become a hotter man.
In the past few years, many young, educated people have started forming local cycling clubs to enjoy the health benefits of riding a cycle. Celebrities have also been riding cycles with panache both in their movies as well as in real life.
Let us take a look at 10 actors who made riding a cycle look sexy in their movies.
1. Aamir Khan in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander
We all know this one don’t we?
One of the most iconic youth movies of Bollywood, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander is a story of love, courage and friendship, oh and also a cycle race. After a lot of hardwork and practise not to forget the dramatic Hindi movie difficulties in the path of the main hero, Aamir beats the main villain in the championship, making his school and family proud. Cycling is a tough sport, and Aamir made it look really sexy in this movie.
2. Ranbir Kapoor in Barfi
Darjeeling – Ranbir-Cycle. Need we say more?
3. Shahid Kapoor in Jab We Met
In Jab We Met, Shahid is shown romancing Kareena Kapoor on a bicycle. In today’s day of sports cars and fast bikes, a sweet romantic ride on a bicycle is definitely offbeat and sexy. Its different, it is something she will remember. So skip your cars for once and surprise your girlfriends by picking them up in your old-school bicycles.
3. Anushka Sharma in PK and Katrina Kaif in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani
Why should boys have all the fun? Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif prove that girls can look extremely pretty and sexy while cycling.
4. Hrithik Roshan in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai
In the first part of the movie where Hrithik plays the role of Rohit, an orphan singing prodigy, he owns just a bicycle and is proud about riding it. A lot of people in our society cannot afford to buy cars and motorcycles so bicycle remains the ideal mode of commuting for them.
5. Shah Rukh Khan in Dil Toh Paagal Hai
In this amazing beautiful musical, SRK is seen riding a bicycle while his best friend Karishma Kapoor is jogging with the intention of beating him in their race. Cycle around with your friends and re-live those of-so-special moments!
