FILE - In this Sept. 14, 2017, file photo, Minnesota Lynx center Sylvia Fowles (34) celebrates after scoring against the Washington Mystics during the first half of Game 2 of the WNBA basketball semifinals in Minneapolis. While Fowles was sitting out the 2015 season waiting for a trade, the 2017 WNBA MVP spent a lot of time cycling. It was a chance for her to stay in shape and keep her mind focused on other things besides basketball. Now she's giving others a chance to cycle, donating a portion of her MVP bonus to Cycles for Change. It's a local organization that gives girls access to bicycles.
