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 Rejection Ride

This is a term that I've coined over the course of the last month.

Instead of sitting around torturing myself with questions like "Why not me?" or "Was it my essay?" or any of that garbage, I torture my legs with one of my favorite routes that takes me up a local grinder called Pinehurst. 

Rule of thumb: as many Pinehurst repeats as rejection letters received on the day of question. 

Today, on my third repeat, I forgot why I was riding and just rode. That's why I love cycling. 

The suffer. Get after it.
