After a relatively mild start to the summer, the heat has finally caught up to us out here in the desert- and, so, just as the riding climate becomes less than ideal, Danny wraps up another summer visit with us. He has come a long, long way as a cyclist and bicycle mechanic since he first came out to Colorado last summer and has more than earned his bike geek stripes (paying in flesh and blood as well as hours in the saddle).
After an early morning 50K out on the desert grid, the SOMA was ceremoniously disassembled and boxed for shipping- now if we are lucky and the mercury drops a bit this evening he may get the 29'er 1x9 out for a final sunset hotlap on the 18 road singletrack. Crack o dawn tomorrow he is back home to tear up the trails and pave of the Bay Area- and to start planning for next year's adventure!
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!
