Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop
Mellow Johnny's is a bike shop first and foremost. But it could also be described as "an experience." Just sit near the door and watch the people that come in. Looks of wonder, amazement and sheer feeling will be evoked. And it is all because of one man. We don't even need to mention his name, as we're all talking about the same person.
Cancer survivors and friends and family members of victims of Cancer come from all over the world just to set foot in this bike shop. Maybe shrine, or grotto would be a better word for it? This works too because of the way that the shop is set up.
Old Motorola team bikes, Yellow Jersey's, commemorative ride posters line the walls of the bathroom TT disc wheels designed by graffiti artists. Its all there.
However there is a little something for everyone at MJ's. Coffee if you need it from Juan Pelota Café, maybe a personal training session from former Postal Service rider Kevin Livingston? Or if that's not your cup of tea take a peruse through the Gallery in the basement. Currently showing there are photographs from the Tour de France in an exhibit aptly titled Le Tour by Brent Humphreys. Which is where these photos live.There are some nice bikes down there too.
Chances are, if you also need a flat tire fixed, while you're waiting for your coffee or a former Tour de France racer to make up a training plan for you, well, I bet they can do that too.
