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!

at Tabeguache AKA: the Lunch Loops. i rode the ol' singlespeed and Jen was on her plush Eriksen f/s. we have had some excellent riding conditions here in western Colorado lately; temperatures have moderated during the day and the nights are pleasantly cool.

here are a few images from the ride:

lots of nice singletrack and sunny western skies to be savoured.

dropping down towards the Gunnison river with the Grand Mesa in the background.

enjoy the descents because there is some climbing to be done at the end of the loop.

still snaking the sweet singletrack with sublety and souplesse on the singlespeed.

we are actually standing on the trail. the sagebrush and native grasses are quite robust in this area, giving the ssensation that we are in the middle of a vast sea of vegetation.

Land of Many Abuses

the big, giant WTF?? award goes out to the hillbilly that trucked this junk miles out to the middle of nowhere to dump it right at the trailhead. probably the same idiot that bitches about getting rid government and paying taxes. chain 'em up together and have 'em pick up trash along the freeway for the next 10 years or so, i say.

here's the Garmin data of the actual loop. this does not include the portion from the trailhead at Tabeguache, so be sure to calculate riding times accordingly:
