WASHINGTON | Lance Armstrong and Tony Kornheiser have made up. They even agreed to go for a bike ride together.

Armstrong appeared on Kornheiser’s ESPN980 radio show Friday, a day after the seven-time Tour de France champion went to Twitter to take the former Washington Post columnist to task for criticizing people who cycle on streets.

Among Kornheiser’s lines: “They dare you to run them down, and then when you do, they get angry.”

But they spoke on the phone Thursday, then had an amiable back-and-forth on the radio Friday, when Kornheiser called his earlier comments “way over the top” and vowed, “these rants are over, believe me.”

At the segment’s end, the pair said they’d ride with each other someday — then have a beer.
