As if just riding a bike isn't dangerous enough sometimes, in this 1985 pic, Kevin Costner risks it all by entering the Hell of the West road race, even though he has a potentially fatal brain aneurysm. He's pitted against his arch-rival, Muzzin, which has to be among the worst character names ever. And yes, guys falls off their bikes. And no, Costner doesn't die. And "Waterworld" was awful, but "American Flyers" is no "Lawrence of Arabia" either. RELATED: Sharing the Road: Can L.A. be a cyclist's town?
