Queen Bey has spoken, and she likes bikes. Chicago bikes, apparently.

Lakeview's Heritage Bicycles General Store got an unexpected endorsement from Beyonce on Wednesday, when her official website featured a "spotlight" on the business.

Owner Michael Salvatore told dnainfo.com that the endorsement was completely unexpected, and that he noticed the mention after seeing a spike in traffic Wednesday.
