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!

buy nothing day- 26 november 2010



(image credit: buynothingday.org)


for some, it's known as "black friday"... the gluttonous orgy of consumerism that often begins at 3 a.m. with a ceremonial trampling of the Walmart customer service representative unlucky enough to be designated as the official door-opener for the melee. for others, it's simply "buy nothing day".

this year, i would urge all to get out enjoy a nice ride on the bike rather than a stressful day driving around to the various shopping malls, etc. the stuff will all be there a day or two later... what's the big rush? and if the stuff isn't there a day or two later, we probably didn't really need it in the first place, did we?

take time on friday not to be thankful for more stuff, but just simply to be more thankful. we'll see you out on the roads and trails... a couple of things that we all can be thankful for!
