Makeup free Elle Macpherson, 54, risks a $330 fine as she goes cycling without a helmet

She has been enjoying some quality time in her home country of Australia recently, after jetting in last week for the Spring Racing Carnival. 

But it looks like Elle Macpherson has forgotten the road rules after years living overseas, as she risked a $330 fine while cycling in Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Friday.

The 54-year-old mother-of-two was noticeably not wearing a helmet, which could land her in trouble if caught by a police officer.

Elle, who is nicknamed ‘The Body’, flaunted her slim figure in activewear, including black leggings and a cropped jumper.

The five-time Sports Illustrated cover star also wrapped up warm in a puffer jacket from The North Face.

She styled her long brunette hair in loose tousled curls and concealed her gaze behind dark sunglasses.

Cyclists in New South Wales are now subjected to fines of $330 for riding without a helmet after new rules were introduced by roads minister Duncan Gray last year. 

Rule 256 of the new cycling rules states a rider must wear an Australian Standard-approved bicycle helmet, securely fitted and fastened on the riders head. 

The fine for not complying increased from $71 to $319 when it was introduced.

Meanwhile on Sunday, Elle took a nasty tumble outside a florist in Sydney. 

Elle fell as she left the shop and attempted to make her way to a parked car outside.

On Thursday, she was mocked by a bystander for the fall, when she left her Welleco beauty launch at Bondi Icebergs. 

‘No falling today?’ a male voice could be heard saying as the age-defying beauty made her way to a waiting car.  

However the statuesque star took the comment in her stride and smiled to fans as she made her exit.

‘Thank you guys!’ the Australian icon said as she successfully planted both feet into the waiting vehicle.
