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!

ride for Sunday june 7, 2009

this week we will take on one South Routt County's classic loops- the Lynx pass/Gore pass combo, returning via S.H. 131 through Toponas for a total of 90 km or so with an estimated ride time of approximately 3 hours. ride departs from the Velosport at 10, so coffee up and bring some extra snacks and warm clothes as the weather service is calling for a high of 56.
hopefully the rain will hold off and there will be a tailwind from the south all the way back to OC.

approximately 40 km of gravel roads are featured, and it's 60 km before the peleton rolls into Toponas once we take off, so all participants please prepare adequately.

this week's ride is a bit shorter in duration, as the Velosport team is tapering down a bit on the distance as the season opener is Wednesdau night at Marabou Ranch.
the trails are in pretty good condition with the exception of a rough stretch where the pro-expert-singlespeed bunch peels of for their extra loop.
anyone planning on riding out there is requested (by me) to go ahead and ride the extra bit in an effort to grrom the trail a bit more prior to the race. the cows reall gave it the special treatment over the winter.
