Lance Armstrong has a brand new riding partner ... NFL legend Brett Favre.
The two connected at Lance's bike shop Mellow Johnny's in Austin, Texas Monday ... and decided to go out on a ride together.
We spoke with someone at the shop who tells us the two came into the shop together this morning -- Brett had some service done to his bike ... and then the two hit the road.
Brett is just the latest big sports star to have Lance's back -- he just rode in Bo Jackson's charity event in Alabama and former British soccer star Geoff Thomas has called for the public to forgive him.
