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 new world order

it's not often that i am heard to say that a Pro deserves a win- but this would be one of those rare occasions. especially rare, in this instance, because i am no particular fan of Team Sky (for a lot of reasons).
their dogged adherence to "plan A" has proven to be a failure thus far this year- at least until today when the directeurs saw fit to allow the workers free rein when Wiggins predictably faltered on the final climb. at least we didn't have to endure yet another tempestuous "bike tossing" incident this time around.
i could not have been happier with the outcome... unless of course by some miracle one of the Team Colombia riders had soloed to victory. it also bears mentioning at this time that there are plenty of mountains yet to come in this year's Giro d' Italia, and Carlos Betancur will eventually get his timing right at the finish

congratulations to Rigoberto Uran of Team Sky and to all of Colombia as well.
