We know celebrities are finding it in vogue to travel via hybrid or some other green car to events — but it’s rare we actually see them take things a step further by walking or (*gasp*) biking to the red carpet.

Liam Neeson, however, decided to jump on a bike this week in New York City and do just that for the launch of the global warming initiative Bicycle For A Day. Granted, he was actually dared to do so by the campaign’s founder — Weeds actor Matthew Modine — but with the promise of a free dinner and the opportunity to make a point, the decision came easy to the actor. From the article,

‘”Honestly, bicycling isn’t just fun and healthy and non-polluting, it’s sexy,” said Matthew at the Tuesday night bash, which was also attended by Robert Kennedy Jr – the nephew of late US President John F Kennedy. ‘It gives you a nice rear end.'”

Modine is organizing events in San Francisco, Chicago and New York to highlight the perils of global warming. According to Hello! Magazine, he envisages a day of community-based activities at a prominent city park – to which attendees would travel on two wheels – including entertainment, speeches by politicians and environmental groups.

You can pedal over to the organization’s site for more information!
