Ok, so we here at Transit Miami have to jump on the LeBron James bandwagon too, but not because of basketball. Our boy LeBron seems to like bicycles. He acquired a minority ownership stake in Cannondale a few years ago and The King had this to say about his business venture:

Biking is an extremely important part of my training routine, and I like to invest in what I know”.

Smart guy; we like him already.

LeBron also sponsors a “King for Kids Bike-a-thon” in his hometown of Akron, Ohio every summer.  Check him out here:

Bienvenido a Miami El Rey!

The cycling community looks forward to working with you.

    Totally awesome! I detest “professional” team sports, but I certainly respect Mr. James for his outlook and his impressive maturity.

    If Miami’s leaders had any brains, they could work with this guy to make some PSAs and other events and bring the message to the masses.
