Bradley Cooper's presence at a spinning class had ladies "falling off their bikes" this week.

The Hollywood hunk is enjoying his time in the limelight at the moment, following his critically acclaimed performance in Silver Linings Playbook. After bagging a best actor Oscar nomination as well as a host of other nods, the star is clearly eager to stay in shape during awards season.

Bradley attended a 7.30am workout session at the SoulCycle studio in New York City on Tuesday, and sent the female-dominated class into a spin with his rippling physique.

"He was trying to be incognito and wore a long-sleeved shirt for most of the ride," a source revealed. It has been claimed Bradley decided to take off his shirt towards the end of the class, and the sight of his topless trunk meant "girls were literally falling off their bikes".

The 38-year-old star plays a bipolar man obsessed with exercise who is trying to win his wife back in Silver Linings Playbook.

Bradley has maintained the muscular shape he showed off in the movie and had no trouble keeping up during the spinning class.

He even stayed around after the session had finished and congratulated his fellow riders on their efforts.

"[Bradley] was super gracious," a source added to New York Post. "He introduced himself, shook their hands and even congratulated the girls on a great class."

Bradley is up against Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix and Denzel Washington in the best actor category at the Academy Awards, which will take place on February 24.
