Robin Williams: Actor, Comedian, and…Cyclist?

Beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams made us all laugh and warmed our hearts throughout the years. Whilst he died in 2014, but his legacy still lives on in his movies and work.

One particular aspect of his personal life that we (obviously) adore is the fact that he was an avid cyclist who loved to be on his bike.

Having been quoted once as saying that, “Cycling saved my life”, he had built a rather large collection of bikes over the years, which are now being auctioned off to the public.

Suffice to say, some of them are rather unusual and rare – here’s our favourites:
