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!

Fruita, usa trail report for April 2, 2010

April showers bring May flowers

rained hard all wednesday night. squalls of rain and snow thursday, some sun. the weather is definitely in an unsettled pattern right now. hopefully we don't get any more rain tonight or friday and things dry out a bit for the weekend. in all probability, the trails should be great by then.

soggy. as of thursday afternoon, trails are soggy. the weekend outlook is excellent, however.

in the mean time, keep your fingers crossed and check often with the real experts at predicting the weather:

the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their excellent enhanced radar loops. here's the one closest to Fruita, USA: Grand Junction Radar loop.

also be sure to check the long-term 10-day forecast from Weather.com, because their prediction is a whole lot better than mine, no matter what i might guess on any given day. even if the sun is shining at that very moment.

and if you're planning a trip to Fruita, USA in the near future, go ahead and bring your roadbike. you might be the only one in your group who is riding instead of waiting for the trails to dry out (and we have some awesome roadie stuff out here, too, btw).
