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!

the Tour of Colorado 2011 (a.k.a. the U.S. PRO Cycling Challenge)

the pelican will be blasting up this climb on S.H. 131 during stage 5. we'll be a few miles up the road waiting for 'em

finally. after 23 years in the waiting for this to happen again. and sure, we have had a few decent, high quality events in the interim, but this is the real deal with a carp-tonne of talented, top-level riders.
we will be covering the time trial in Vail and the next two stages with exclusive images and commentary. otherwise, there is always the 'shacktracker on the interwebs, or better yet, come on out to Colorado to see the Pros race and do a little bit of roadside camping and Euro-style cyclotouring.

don't forget to close the gates behind you and please, please don't bring the dog to the races!
