Bicycle Advocates of the Day: The Miami Heat

Bicycle Advocates of the Day: The Miami Heat
The Miami Bike Scene

It turns out that LeBron James riding his bike to work was just the tip of the iceberg.

Since the King's commute made waves back in January, he's been spotted riding his Cannondale to work a number of times. His rationale? "The traffic," LeBron told the media after a victory over the Bulls last season. "You guys drove here? You're crazy."

Evidently his enthusiasm is contagious: he's roped teammates Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers into participating in Miami's Critical Mass, the municipally unsanctioned monthly bike ride that occurs on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world.

"This is bananas, critical mass," said LeBron's teammate Dwyane Wade. "I love it," he later told a Fox reporter after a game.
