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!

very skinny, indeed

Andy Schleck, that is. that's what Paul Sherwen said about Andy while commentating with Phil Liggett during one of this year's Tour de France stages, that "he might look big in photos or on the television, but i can assure you that he's very skinny, indeed."

definitely one of the best comments from this year's Tour.

during saturday's Classica San Sebastian in Spain, Andy went off the road and crashed- quite a ways down a hillside. now it appears that his participation in the Vuelta a Espana has been ruined. i would be surprised if he is able to race again until the Giro di Lombardia.
crashing sucks. crashing sucks even worse when you get hurt while at the top of the game. at least he's still young and fit and was still able to get back on the bike for a few kilometers before (sensibly) abandoning.
he wasn't the only one to crash out, by the way.
