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!

the 96th Tour de France 2009

stage two will be one for the sprinters- i predict Thor Hushovd to take the win as well as the maillot vert when the peloton rolls across the line in Brignoles.
in honor of the sprinter's stage, i am posting am image from our garden, which is looking quite nice lately. a sort of jardine vert, if you will, with all of the rain we have been getting here in south Routt so far this spring.
more about the garden in later installments.

for all of the Tour junkies out there who can't get enough from the usual outlets, here's a link to the reference archive of live internet broadcasts in just about any language you want. this is much needed relief from the usual serving of Lance/commercial/Lance/commercial/Lance... etc., etc., etc. that we get here in the U.S. from the only network that will even bother covering a ProTour cycling event, Verses (formerly known as OLN- Only Lance Network).

apparently there are 179 other riders contesting le Tour this year. sometimes it's just kind of hard to tell otherwise.

copious amounts of Tour coverage can be found here
