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!

NorCal Ride Report March 6, 2011

Despite the rain and cold, and against better judgment, I decided to go out for a commemorative 16miler. Yeah, it only took an hour, and yeah it was wet and cold, but it was fun and I'm glad that I got out on the bike before the essay writing commenced.

Don't mind if I do, mysterious note writer.

Not nearly as icy as it was wet...

...not really even that wet.

All in all, it was a really great ride. A lot of people I know never ride in the rain, but I've come to like it, actually. There are so few people out on the road that it's just relaxing - a really great way to celebrate a birthday as well.

So with that, AYC, I have an essay to write, some bearings to service, and a pie to indulge with.

Keep it classy.
