We love bicycling as a lifestyle, culture, and sport. We love to ride, build, restore, oggle and sometimes race bicycles. We also love to talk on at great length about our ideas, opinions and exploits involving all of the above. Welcome to our BLOG!

Abandon Your Car is not a slogan or ideology so much as a reminder to all of us to get away from our petro-mobiles as often as we possibly can and embark on life as an adventure by bicycle.

We'll keep you current on the important road and trail beta from our home base in Palisade, Colorado and shower you with our .02 cents about the ongoings of bicycle tribes the world over.

Be sure to tune in for Danny, AKA: the Young Apprenctice, providing the ever important perspectives of a college-bound bike geek and all around brainiac in his NORCAL Updates.

We're glad you're here- look around, drop the Bike Master a line and then get out and ride for awhile- you'll be glad you did!

evening ride for Wednesday, May 20 2009

just a short, easy out and back on C.R. 25. it was kind of windy and the temperature dropped about 8 degrees while we were out. the point is, though, that we were out there riding and enjoying it... only saw one car the whole time. i really love this time of year. the color of the new aspen leaves is so fresh and the evening light casts a beautiful contrast between the green foliage and the snow on the mountains.
i call the time between closing day at the ski mountain and Memorial Day weekend "the 6 best weeks of the year" and i feel that this image captures that idea pretty well. there is no one else around and the riding conditions are nothing but superb.
