Robin Williams (L) and pal Lance Armstrong share saddle time.

The wife of avid cyclist, comedian and Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams has filed for divorce in a San Francisco court, according to several news reports.


The 56-year-old star of “Good Will Hunting” and long-time pal of Lance Armstrong is known for his extensive bicycle collection, reportedly with 60-plus machines in his garage.

“That sounds a lot, but they need less space than a car,” Williams told starpulse.com in 2006. “When I’m riding my bicycle I feel like a Buddhist who is happy just to enjoy his mundane existence.”

Williams was seen at the recent North America Handmade Bicycle Show in Portland, chatting with Independent Fabrications about his new Reynolds 953 stainless bicycle. He also chatted with Dario Pegoretti. 


This is Williams’ second marriage.
