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!

Giro d' Italia stage 4 - TTT
unless you have the top-dollar cable sports programming piped into your teevee, chances are you didn't see today's coverage of the G-d Italia here in the 'states... just like me.
check out how Vinokourov shags his team off the back, one by one. the clock doesn't stop until the 5th rider crosses the line, so getting all steamed up about it doesn't help one bit, either.
imagine being #5, just killing it because you know that the boss is about to lose his pink jersey, sunglasses and booties. and the boss is real tight with the ol' boys back in Kazakhstan, by the way.
and i just have to say that Vino is looking awfully huge and showing abundantly good form for a guy who has been "on holiday" for the past two years. amazing what a little bit of beach time can do for ya...
sooo, enjoy the racing. what little we get to see.
