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!

*a local trail building organization*

it is with some regret (but not too much) that we are withdrawing our support from *a local trail building organization* due to their president's public endorsement of a right-wing candidate for Colorado state house of Representatives. the *a local trail building organization* is claiming that the candidate is being endorsed because a few ambiguous "pro-bike" noises he has made during his campaign.

sorry- but blindly supporting a politician for a single issue is nothing but reckless and irresponsible; especially given the candidate's positions on other issues (fracking, public lands, endangered species, etc, etc) that are in direct conflict with any claims of responsible "stewardship".

aside from that, 3 years after our membership has expired, we have yet to receive an invitation to renew. *a local trail building organization* will not be receiving a check from us, either- now or in the future. at least until they get their act together and smell the sagebrush.
