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!

how they roll- the times they are a changin'

this story and image were poached from the local fishwrapper; the GJ Sentinel

Mesa County Sheriff's deputies take pictures at the scene of an armed robbery at the Walgreens in Clifton this morning. The robber was described as a 6-foot-tall white male, who was wearing a brown jacket, ball cap and surgical mask. The robber is believed to have gotten away on a bicycle.

imagine that... a bicycle.

i know for a fact that this will not reflect poorly on the local cycling community as a whole, but sometimes there is a bad apple in the bunch, ummm... i mean peleton, no matter what demographic group we choose to study.

they failed to mention whether or not the perp was rollin' on a fixie or a Mal-Wart special. details like this could lead to a speedy appprehension or a clean getaway. inquiring minds want to know.
