Seattle is very similar to Minneapolis. I like the culture; I like the people. I raced a bike and won a national championship on Lake Washington in 1977, so I’ve had a connection there for a long time.

I learned to ride a ten-speed when I was 4 or 5. My uncle gave me the bike, hand-me-down, and everyone used to stare at me riding up and down this block. I was too short to reach the pedals, so I put my legs through the V of the frame. I was famous. The little kid who could ride the ten-speed.
In our game, it’s your vanity that keeps you in shape. I’ve got a little gym set up, and I ride a single-speed bike up the hills behind my house. Lately I’ve been kind of a slacker. Usually it’s a film role that makes me start getting in shape. Between roles, I try to do a little maintenance, but I’m not a workout fanatic at all.
