Click bait. I fell for it. You don't have to.

BLUF: car drivers in LA think it's dangerous to ride a bike there. My response: have you tried DRIVING in LA??

Reggie Miller on Mountain Biking:
There are certain things black people just don’t do, OK? Skiing is one of them. Tiger made it OK for us to play golf. With mountain biking, I guess I’m one of the first. LeBron pedaled a bike from his house all the way to the arena once, with security. But on trails, I’m one of the only brothers out there biking.

Oakland Yellow Jackets might have a different opinion on this. Road, MTB... it's all good.

LA sux.

LeBron could make a big positive impact on bicycling in LA. Few people have more power in that city than a Laker superstar.

I was a Reggie Miller hater back in the day, but only because I was a Knicks fan. Now that I've learned about him being into mountain biking, I think he's pretty cool.
