The famous actor, who passed away in 2014 aged 63, was a keen cyclist and had 87 bicycles in his collection, all of which were donated to the charity auction by his family.

Robin Williams lived a majority of his life in Marin County, California, a mecca for both road cycling and mountain biking. He was a passionate cyclist, an accomplished collector of bicycles and a compassionate supporter of people with disabilities. His children have donated a selection of favorites from his personal bicycle collection to be auctioned off in support of the Challenged Athletes Foundation and Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
