I know next to nothing about sports, but I’m told that a) this is LeBron James, b) he is not normally the bikey kind of athlete, and c) he IS the extremely highly paid kind of athlete who probably owns 20 cars and a “this is where the magic happens” room. So it’s pretty impressive that a fan caught a photo of him biking to a game.

Apparently James was avoiding a traffic jam when snapped by alert Twitter user @jackNruth:

Traffic was backed up because of a nearby marathon and LeBron decided to take another mode of transportation. The ride took 40 minutes and he safely arrived at the arena with plenty of time to spare.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

With that kind of attitude, he’ll definitely win the Superbowl!

Update: Apparently James bikes to games “all the time“! Neat.
