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!

gooseberry mesa, utah

 (re-edited)

on the annual pilgrimage out to NorCal for thanksgiving with the family, Jen and i had the opportunity to take in one of the all-time great mountain biking trails... Gooseberry Mesa ; deep inside the land of Zion

here's a few of the better images from the day:




big rocks and lots of slickrock


the air was fresh and full of the scents of juniper, pinon and sage.


rainfall the day before made for some surreal riding conditions. the trail follows the mesa's rim out to the very tip of the eroded sandstone saddle (center of this image)



there are plenty of technical moves and cliff-side exposure opportunities to be had on the South Rim trail and the extension out to the viewpoint.
