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!

Fruita USA trail report for monday march 7, 2011

dispatch: Rabbit Valley, Colorado

Jen (on her Eriksen 650b) says Trail 2 is ready for some bicycle-grooming.

migratory birds and cyclists alike are arriving daily here in western Colorado. most trails are getting quite dry by now, and those in Rabbit Valley are no exception. some mud still persists (especially at higher elevations or north-facing, shaded areas) and the motos have churned it up all winter long, from the looks of things. the trails need riders to smooth those ruts and all of the post holes left behind by the free-range heifers. asthma sufferers (such as myself) are well advised to remember their inhalers- it seems that every farmer in the valley is burning their ditches and fields in preparation for spring planting and irrigation. lots of smoke, dust and pm-10's hovering in the atmosphere is what i'm telling ya.

local weather is still a bit unsettled as well. be sure to consult the convenient links on the right-hand side of this page when making plans for local desert riding this spring, and this blog for first-hand, on-the-ground observations. we'll see you out on the trails.

  1. The film also showed the failed attempts by electric car enthusiasts trying to combat auto industry moves, and save the surviving vehicles. Towards the end of the film, a deactivated EV1 car #99 is found in the garage of Petersen Automotive Museum, with former EV sales representative, Chelsea Sexton, invited for a visit.Car Trailers
