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!

race results: wednesday night world's

South Routt Velosport racing team hauls in the bling at the Sunshine cross country. here's a brief report and photos.





Jen (on right) and a fellow competitor just about to launch.





Jen was able to roll in and win her age group again (2nd overall, womens novice) just as a gigantic UFO landed at the start/finish line.


pro/open men on the line: #16 Essam Welch, #17 Corey Piscopo



this is one of my favorite Town Challenge races; lots of singletrack and straight up and straight down the mountain. 20 kilometers with 1000 meters vertical gain/loss in 1 hour 13. good for top 12-ish overall and 1st place in the singlespeed division.




dropping in through the dust and afternoon light, 200 meters to go.
