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!

Trail Report Fruita USA, April 25, 2011

Quite the wild ride here in Fruita this spring. Maybe April will go out like a lamb- but watch the weather lest you get nailed by a lion.

The week Doug and Dave came out from Cali was perfect (April 18-22) All areas rode brilliantly with coolish days, tacky singletrack and 0 precip.

It is always a ton of fun to show off our amazing collection of trails when the weather cooperates- these guys got after it at Loma, The 18, Rabbit Valley- toppped it off with a tour de lunch loops and left town smiling.

Then we got clobbered over the weekend with cold, wet and more cold and more wet (and I mean wet). Even the road riding pretty much sucked.
Desperate to get out and turn the legs, I got snowed on up at the 18 the day before yesterday. Frankly I'm a little surprised just how muddy things want to stay.

But- the good news is, the skies have cleared, there is a cool, drying breeze in the air and if folks choose carefully and show a little respect for the trails they ride, it should be a good weekend to ride.

Personally and selfishly I'm looking for a little more moisture and cool temps to help ease the suffering in the sand at the Rabbit Valley Rally!
