Arnold Schwarzenegger took to the streets again for one of his regular bike rides around Los Angeles, California on Wednesday morning.
As the 73-year-old former governor of California cruised on his $5K electric bicycle, he dressed in head-to-toe sporty gear, which included a light green puffer jacket.
While the star briefly took off his facial covering on the sidewalk, he was vigilant about wearing a mask as he vigorously cycled past businesses and neighborhoods.

The father-of-five completed his outfit with a navy blue t-shirt, black sweatpants and a pair of retro sunglasses.
His outing came on the same day supporters of President Donald Trump violently stormed the U.S. Capitol to protest his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden, leading to the death of one woman and politicians scrambling to safety.
Two days prior to the riots, Schwarzenegger slammed lawmakers who plan to vote against Biden’s win.
‘There is no question about who won the presidential election and continuing this charade is stupid, crazy and evil,’ he wrote in a searing op-ed for The Economist.

Schwarzenegger also talked about his own Austrian upbringing, writing about how the country was in ruins after World War II.
‘Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men drinking away their guilt over their participation in the most evil regime in history,’ he recalled.
‘They were part of a system that murdered 6 million Jews along with at least 5 million other innocent people, tortured and experimented on human beings and started a war that caused 75 million deaths,’ he continued. ‘Not all of them were rabid anti-Semites or Nazis,’ Schwarzenegger observed.
‘Many just went along step by step down the road toward greater and greater evil because it was the easiest path,’ the ex-actor added.Schwarzenegger said he didn’t believe the U.S. was ‘capable of those depths of evil.’

Schwarzenegger said he didn’t believe the U.S. was ‘capable of those depths of evil.’
‘But I do believe we should remember the dire consequences that choosing selfishness and cynicism over service and hope can have,’ he wrote.

The bodybuilding enthusiast announced that he’d undergone heart surgery in Cleveland, Ohio, as he shared a snap of himself in his hospital bed on Instagram.
‘Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery,’ he wrote.
He then said, ‘I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues. Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team!’
In September, he took to Instagram after his second heart surgery in two years, writing: ‘Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery.
After recovering from open-heart surgery in 2018, not long before he reported to set for Terminator: Dark Fate, he told The Sun: ‘It was kind of a surprise. I never get scared about these things.
‘For a minute, I was worried it was too close to doing Terminator 6, but I realized right away the movie is a good means to get back into shape again.’
He added: ‘I was home in no time and was back to the gym in no time. Most people baby themselves too much after surgery.’
