Gets It: Beyoncé Bikes to Barclays

Per her Instagram, Beyoncé biked across the Brooklyn Bridge to her show at the Barclays Center last night.

She’s almost certainly chauffeured most places, but it wouldn’t be the first time Beyoncé has been spotted on two wheels. From a 2009 Billboard interview:

“I also started riding a bike on my days off with others like my assistant and stylist. It’s amazing how I’m able to ride around on a bike. People kind of see it’s me but since I’m on a bike, they think, ‘No, it’s not her.’ And by the time they realize it’s me, I’m already gone. It’s great to do something normal every day. It keeps me grounded.”

That Gelinas column is looking more prescient by the minute.
