Photos: Scofflaw Celebrities (Gyllenhaal! DiCaprio! Uh…Jonas!) Biking On NYC Sidewalks
Unless you’re 12 years old and under, bicycling on NYC sidewalks is against the law. It’s also insanely rude and gives anti-bike people ammo to bitch and moan about how cyclists are inconsiderate and reckless. Yet there’s an even more elitist group of cyclists out there: Celebrity cyclists, like Jake Gyllenhaal who ride (to their spinning classes, probably) on the sidewalk, RUINING THINGS FOR EVERYONE.
Other sidewalk-biking stars include Joe Jonas—in Soho on Wednesday—and Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio is a particularly egregious offender: Check out him salmoning with Blake Lively!
Perhaps they heard how Robin Williams got his sidewalk cycling ticket thrown out (the fine is $100). But celebs are not just like us, because us plebes would probably be in jail. At any rate, we salute Keira Knightley for properly dismounting a bicycle in a street before placing it in a rack!
