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!

afternoon ride for 03 november 2010

the Ribbon- Grand Junction, Colorado

note: if you plan on doing this ride, do yourself a big favor and opt for the "extended version" which begins at the main Tabeguache trailhead. don't be afraid of the extra climbing and singletrack. the loop shown on the link above is less than half the total distance of the longer ride, and nearly all of the additional riding is on some really excellent singletrack as an extra incentive.


70 degrees farenheit & not a cloud in the sky in november feels really nice- especially if you are not fortunate enough to live in sunny California or somewhere with one of those "Mediterranean climates" .

this nice Colorado singletrack helps ease our suffering a bit, however.



back scratcher.

sorry about the unederexposure, i just happen to like this particular section of trail.



lots of fast descending on wide open slickock



we stopped long enough to take in some nice views of the valley. note the trail continuing downward, lower right of image.
