Bike to China 2008

Sausage Rug

Back in the days of Jan Ullrich, about this time of year, he’d show up to races a bit overweight and the sausage and pastry jokes would start. This sausage rug would make a good “got fat in the winter” gag gift and reminded me of simpler times, when the cycling headlines were about Jan’s belly and not el dope.


Pedal-Powered Car

A 1986 Buick Regal designed by artist Michel de Broin who removed the engine, suspension, transmission and electrical system and replaced them with pedals and gears … later the driver was ticketed for operating an unsafe vehicle.

Hat tip to Kristen.

Mellow Johnny’s: a commuter bike shop

Lance Armstrong unveiled his bike shop today and it’s focused on commuting, including

Showers and a locker room will allow commuters who don’t have facilities at their offices to ride downtown, store their bikes at the shop, bathe and catch a ride on a pedicab or walk the rest of the way to work.

Lance said in the Austin360 article that he wants Mellow Johnny’s to be, “the coolest bike shop in the world … it’s all about bike culture and he wants to see Austin evolve into a place like Portland, Ore.”

Word. I didn’t expect a commuter shop, when I posted about his new shop earlier this week. And when we’re in town for SXSW and our BBQ, I’ll try to get more details.

Barak Obama reminded me it was Valentine’s Day. Barak Obama pumped up your tires before a big race. Barak Obama pinned your race number for you. Barak Obama paced you all the way to work.
