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!

2011 NAHBS award winners announced

officially, of course, via the North American Handmade Bicycle Show website. and our local favorites fared well again, bringing home additional palmares for the sagging trophy shelf at Eriksen Cycles world headquarters. we at ABANDON YOUR CAR would like to extend a hearty congratulations to Kent (and the hardworking crew behind the scenes: Katie, Chris, Chad & Bo) for their fantastic 29'er tandem that took top honors for, you guessed it, Best Tandem.

here's all of the show winners for their group photo. check out the guy in the back:

he must have been channeling all of that happy Eriksen mojo from one of his fans somewhere way out in the desert of western Colorado:

i can't wait for the trails to dry out a bit so that Jen and i can take that thing for an "inspired" test ride. now that the dust has settled somewhat, maybe Kent and Katie have a little time for a visit out Fruita way for some nice springtime riding... hmmm.

we'll keep you posted.
