Lakers star LeBron James gives kids free access to bikes for a year through partnership with Lyft and YMCA
With the partnership, the kids get free access to bikes for a year.
Today in Harlem, LeBron James surprised a group of teens as part of a partnership announcement between Lyft and the YMCA. These kids get free access to bikes for a year. Can’t get enough of their reactions when LeBron walks into the gym. pic.twitter.com/nzwT0wiGZI

This is just the latest example of LeBron being active in the community. The Lakers star just continues to cement himself as the greatest role model of this generation.
Of course, James’ biggest activist trophy goes to the school he opened last year. LeBron opened up the “I PROMISE School” in his hometown of Akron, Ohio last year. Its purpose is to help at-risk children in the Ohio community succeed in school.
LeBron may be in California now playing for the Lakers, but he’s never going to stop making an impact in Northeast Ohio, or anywhere for that matter. If you ask James, he’ll tell you that school is much more important to him than the title he brought to Cleveland in 2016 or getting his jersey retired by the Cavs one day.
The 35-year-old superstar can relate to a lot of these kids, and he wants to make sure their upbringings are better than his.
LeBron James and the Lakers are coming off a rough loss to the Boston Celtics on Monday, but the defeat didn’t stop The King from making these kids day in Harlem.
