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!

The 1st Annual Kokopellish Epic Adventure!

Longstory short is that the Great First Annual Kokopelli Trail ride did not come off this year as expected...the saga is sad and meandering so we will leave it alone.
Like a Phoenix out of the ashes rose The 1st Annual Kokopellish Epic Adventure- and for now we think we just might be more psyched about the rides we put together to showcase the spectacular landscape between Fruita and Moab than we would be if we had ridden the Kokopelli Trail start to finish.

Day 1 was spent warming up and whipping the foul weather blues by riding between storms on our home turf out at Loma.

Day 2 we raced the thunderheads out in Rabbit Valley along the Western Rim and Trail 2
Day 3 was a lollipop loop from Fish Ford, through Yellow Jacket Canyon, out to Dewey Bridge and back to Fish Ford.

Day 4 started at 8,000 feet, took us "backward" along the Kokopelli Trail to the ripping descent through Fisher Valley and Onion Creek
Day 5 we explored some amazing high altitude singletrack along Fisher Mesa in the Manti-sal National Forest and earned bird's eye views of the desert lands we had ridden for 4 days prior

We rode hard- got put away wet and came away from it all still talking to one another. YEAH!

Certainly there will be further postings and better links as we recover, but for now check out the slideshow!
