The Great LSD Bike Ride and Lance's "Mellow Jonny"

Albert Hoffmann 1906 - 2008

What did Albert Hofmann do immediately after discovering and ingesting LSD for the first time? He jumped on his bike of course. What better way to embark on the first acid trip than on a bike. This is fitting, since the effects of LSD and cycling are almost identical. Both incite a dangerous amount of fun, both inevitably lead to silly clothing, and both provide the user delusions of grandeur... the list is endless. Albert said of LSD "It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be." See? The same as cycling... RIP ALbert

Lance is embracing the urban bike scene by opening a commuting/training focused bike shop in Austin called "Mellow Jonny's"

Lance's new fixie dealio from Trek is so advanced it doesn't even need a chain. Just the gears to imply the presence of a chain is enough to propel most any hipster.
