It’s not quite on the level of Beyonce riding a bike over the Brooklyn Bridge, but the list of celebrities taking Citi Bike for a spin continues to grow. This week, two boldface names have joined Seth Meyers, Louis C.K. and Leonardo DiCaprio, who has been spotted on a blue bike not once, but twice.

On Sunday, Kevin Bacon took his first bike-share ride in New York, capturing it with a short video and a plea for more stations uptown. Yesterday, rapper Macklemore took a video of his Citi Bike ride down Broadway in Midtown.
