Mad Man on a Bike.

After mulling it over for a while, I see no reason why I shouldn't post the occasional photo of a handsome man on a bike. If this bores any of my male readers, I apologize - but only a little bit.

As the new season of "Mad Men" is in full swing, I feel it's a good to time to post this photo of actor John Slattery who plays Roger Sterling on the show.

Talk about Hollywood glamour.

This photo appears to be on the studio lot with the actor in costume. Everything about this picture is kind of perfect. The suit, the script, the sunglasses, the way the light shines on the tie clip, the bike, the beauty of the photograph itself...sigh. It looks like it could have been taken in the 60's.

I've liked John Slattery for a long time. Some of you might remember him from his stint as Carrie's politician boyfriend (with a peccadillo or two) on Sex and the City.

And if you're like me and you just like John Slattery or his character on "Mad Men," here are a couple of bonus shots. (Sorry no bikes in these.)

Roger Sterling.

This Girl's Bike in no way endorses smoking. ;)

Younger. Less silver. Still handsome.


  1. Me and my wife recently caught up to the current season of Mad Men. Roger Sterling is the most entertaining character on the show.

  2. Does your ride to work take you past Little Santa Monica and Century Park East? There's someone who passes me every so often on my walk to work on a green-ish Bianchi.

  3. RTP - Yes! I agree. Don Draper is too much of a degenerate. I'm off him.
    Brent - No that's not me. My commute is mostly along Venice Blvd. and Abbot Kinney Blvd. The green Bianchis (the color is called Celeste) are quite flashy though, huh?

  4. Love the bike in a suit idea. It's a shame we don't see more of this around LA.

    On the other hand, I did see an 70ish woman riding her bike in a black shirt and skirt with a large pink hat the other day.

  5. Lovely shots! Men in suits on bikes . . . *sigh*

  6. Absolutely gorgeous!!!! What more can I say....
