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!

springtime in the desert

images by Jen. trails on and near Horse Mtn., Palisade, Colorado.


lots of unmarked single track, best to bring your GPS. that's the Grand Mesa in the background.

a cool, wet winter has made for some lovely desert blooms this spring.

don't forget a spare tube and repair kit while riding out here.

yucca gone wild

looking north towards Palisade- the lush, green oasis. Mt. Garfield is on the left, Mt. Lincoln on the right

expect to suffer a long, exposed grinder in order to enjoy the views from up here.
lotsa loose baby-heads, too.

the view to the south from near the summit of Horse Mtn.

these rocks are course markers from previous editions of the Palisae Classic MTB race. the lizards just keep watch and wait for the racers to pass by again.
