The King Bike Commutes, too

2 Comments

LeBron James, dubbed the King due to his last name and presumably superior regent abilities, chose the quickest way to get to work on Sunday - he bicycled. 

I imagine it's not James' usual commute vehicle but (In this video clip, James says he bikes "all the time." - hat tip to bikeportland.org) Because of Miami Marathon traffic James decided he'd get to American Airlines Arena quickest by hoping on his bike.  Check out the full coverage, via the NBA's All Ball blog.

Apparently, his 35-point performance was directly attributable to his 3.5 mile ride.

As Lebron's trip choice during the Miami Marathon speaks to, you're never stuck in traffic when you bicycle.

Portland has the twice the number of people who bike or walk to work as the average!
