Kevin Durant moved to the Bay area and began investing in all kinds of startups — and winning titles — but he isn’t limiting himself to the West Coast.

Durant, via The Durant Company, is one of the investors in LimeBike, a bike-sharing app that is expanding across the United States. Per its website, LimeBike already has 400 bikes on the ground in the District, and that number could be growing quickly.

The Prince George’s County native is one of a group of investors that raised $50 million to help LimeBike expand, per TechCrunch.

Durant and his co-investors likely didn’t have the nation’s capital specifically in mind when they made their investments — or maybe they did — but D.C. could be one of the biggest benefactors of the growth. Considering the District has just 400 bikes in the city, while Greensboro, NC, has 800 bikes, D.C. seems like an obvious choice for growth.

While the idea of Durant, who measures about 7 feet tall, on a bike seems ridiculous, it’s apparently a thing he likes to do.
