Bruno Maksimovich Pontecorvo was an avid cyclist and knew how to ride a bike both with no hands and sitting hind-foremost. It is how he was pictured on the caricature by Mikhail Bilenky, the son of a close friend of Bruno Pontecorvo, Samoil Mihelevich Bilenky. This friendly caricature, as well as bronze statues near the Culture Centre “Mir”, depicts the academician with a “Kama” bicycle. And in the photograph from the archive of the Museum-Study of the scientist, Bruno Maksimovich is standing near the bicycle which resembles the “Lastochka” model.
