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!

steamboat springs stage race 2009 - marabou TT

one thing that i have known for a long time is that i'm usually not the fastest in the "race of truth". 12:06 for the hilly 6.75 kilometer parcours. got caught at the line by the guy who won- at a minute twenty seven better than me. that time would have placed him 3rd in the pro/1/2's. pretty impressive. the old guys are fast in Colorado.

now i'm sittin pretty in 18th overall, i should be able to improve on that in the next two days.
if not, get the broom wagon.

here's local fast guy Barkley Robinson killin' it in the Pro/1/2's


  1. Yea no shit Cisco - not too bad for an old guy!

    Giv'em hell Dave and good luck.

    Worked till seven and no way I could make it out. Samo today.

  2. Barkley on a BMC? Isn't that a bunch of carpet fiber? I would've expected him to be showing some titanium love.

    Anyways, I hope that the other days went well for you. It sounded like a load of fun.
