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!

retirements and stagaires for 2014
in efforts to maintain a tidy appearance around here, some spring cleaning will be taking place over the next few weeks. starting today, several other blogs linked in the sidebar will be retired as they have gone inactive for a variety of reasons. if your blog was previously linked here and feel that it was removed in error, please contact our admin to have the link reinstated.
here are the retirements for this year, an active link for each will be maintained in this post for future reference.
with the folding of the once mighty Euskatel team, the Iban Mayo blog has gone silent. the world of cycling is diminished by the loss of both.
learning of the passing of P.D. Bird this past autumn has caused us much sorrow. Jennifer and i were honored to have met both P.D. and Johnny last year during our bike tour on the northern California coast- definitely one of the highlights of our adventure. things are just not the same without P.D., and we here at ABANDON YOUR CAR wish Johnny all the best in his future travels.
the visual powerhouse that was once known as Ride the Machine appears to have given over to the dark forces of capitalism and the blog seems to have gone inactive as a result.
announcing Manual for Speed; if you have not checked them out, now would be the time to do so. by far the best race coverage from the Tour of Colorado last year. MFS features beautiful photography and in-depth reporting on many topics not covered in the mainstream cycling media.
