The Miami Heat small forward and avid cyclist rode his oversized, custom made Cannondale bike. He donated 400 bicycles for children so they could ride along with the basketball player.

LeBron James purchased a minority stake in Cannondale in 2007. I don’t know if he retained that ownership after the Dorel purchase.
