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!

Federal Stimulus Funds: bike share program coming to a city near you...

well, at least they may be coming to Boulder... maybe. here's a story from the Thursday edition of the Boulder Daily Camera. in my opinion, this would be a great program and Boulder would be the ideal community (at least as far as Colorado is concerned) in which to make it happen. be sure to check out the comments at the bottom of the article, as the right-wing wet blanket bike-hating naysayers are already chiming in with their .02 cents worth of negativity.
i, for one, am growing so tired of the relentless attacks, directed not only at Obama but now at the cycling community (again) as well. they cast stones in a feeble attempt to kill two birds with a single hurl. criticize and blame and if something doesn't work, well, they told ya so. i'm still waiting for theother side to come up with some legitimate proposals/solutions of their own- but it doesn't seem to be happening. while contemplating the answers to all of this and more, i will leave you, dear readers, with yet one more quandry: what would Jesus ride? (WWJR?)
