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!

announcing the livetrainrace.com Wednesday Night Worlds

i am pleased to announce that the Wednesday Night Worlds have arrived early this year, in the form of a 6-week spring criterium series in Grand Junction, Colorado. local good guy Mike Driver (and yes, cycling fans, that actually IS the guy's real name...) race promoter, club -sponsorer and all around 45+ leg breaker (in conjunction with Ascent Productions) is stepping up in a big way to host the series.

futhermore, the series is a USA CYCLING sanctioned race series, which in my humble opinion is THE sanctioning body to partner with for all your racing needs.

(i will save my heated rant about that for another day).

http://www.livetrainrace.com/ also has a convenient and comprehensive race calender for pretty much all of the racing action happening in the entire Rocky Mountain region (and beyond) in 2010... both kinds of racing, skinny and fat.

get ready for some great local racing in a safe, 1 kilometer closed circuit, right here on Colorado's western slope.

it's time to get out of the gym and onto the bikes, and be sure to renew your USA CYCLING RACING LICENSE ahead of time and support your local promoters as well.

see you at the Worlds!


  1. Sounds like it's going to be a nice start to the season.

    And to the Kokopelli's post below... Whooo!!!! Time to get training.

  2. While he puts it down like a HAMMER, I believe his name is Mike DRIVER...just for the record (-: .

  3. there was a feature on cyclngnews today about Pantani's '98 Tour & Giro winnng bike. it had a 54/44 chainring set. i thought of Mike because i know from experience he could power on that 54 with ease.

    word that.


  4. Hey Bike Master ... Thanks for the kind words, and the mention, and the link. Consider yourself linked back from all of us! See you out there!
