NBA and European royalty will be in the district Monday to promote bicycling.

Two-time NBA All-Star and former Washington Wizard Caron Butler will join the Crown Prince of Denmark for a ride around the National Mall.

Members of Congress will also join in on the ride.

It’s all part of a new partnership between Butler and the League of American Bicyclists.

The league represents the interests of bicyclists in America.

Butler, who’s now a forward for the Dallas Mavericks, founded the program in 2005.

So far, the league has given more than 2,500 bicycles to children in Washington and his hometown of Racine, Wisconsin.
