Lance Armstrong of Tour de France fame is opening a commuter bike shop and café in Austin, Texas called Mellow Johnny with the vision in mind of making that city more bike friendly, much like Portland.

I love this quote from Lance: "There are times I ride in Austin, and I'm afraid of cars. Imagine what the beginner cyclist must feel like?"

Lance wants his shop to the be the "coolest bike shop in the world." Imagine this corner peppered with stylish cyclists sitting in the outdoor terrace, sipping espressos and San Pellegrino.
