    Eastcoaster relocates to Boulder

    Hey all! I just moved to Boulder from NY and need to get into the local mt bike scene (trails, shops, group rides, etc...). There was a screw-up during moving and my mtb gear got packed up and is sitting somewhere in Aurora in storage All I have is my bike and a pump. I won't be able to get my stuff out of storage till I find a house which is at least a month away. So I'll just have to stick to the slopes until then. Anyway...any info you guys can offer would be kewl.

    I don't get it...why can't you get into your storage unit? Don't they have 24 hour access?

    Howdy k2x, welcome to the front range. We do group rides every Tues at 6. For the next few weeks, we're meeting at the shop (Redstone) in Lyons (20 min N of Boulder) and riding Hall Ranch. After the days start to get longer, we'll start doing more interesting rides in the forest. I try to post updates by Monday at www.redstonecyclery.blogspot.com.

    If you make it up to Lyons to ride, I've got cold beer in the fridge for you.

    Interesting.

    I have heard a lot of moving scams where peoples stuff gets "screwed-up" and put half their stuff into storage. Then along comes a cash transaction than can fix the screw-up sooner. They usually do this, knowing you are desperate for your belongings.

    I had some friends actually pull out their cell phones to call the police on the movers then suddenly the screw-up was undone. Not saying this is what is happening but sure sounds familiar.

    Nah....in the caos of the day, this particular box didn't make it to the "don't take" pile and the movers loaded it on the truck. I didn't figure it out till after they took off.

    Yeah, I tried that once following a move, not for anything and important as the bike gear, but pots and pans for some cooking or somesuch nonsense.
    The warehouse was packed, my stuff was packed, boxes on top of boxes, no one was willing, not even me, to move all the boxes needed to get to the one I wanted. "Maybe" your experience will be a bit better.

    What brings you to Boulder? if you are coming out from the White Plains NY area, I think I can guess.

    The mountains!! Actually...I came from the Binghamton, NY area. There was some good mt biking around there..but I was looking to change it up a little. I got a taste of Moab about three years ago and loved it. Ever since I've wanted to come back as much as possible....then I got wise and thought...why not just move out here!! So....after some job searching....here I am!!

    So you do have your bike though right What exactly are you missing as far as gear goes? could you still get out for a little ride?

    don't know till you try....

    So the call to the movers paid off. The truck had just arrived and they were able to pull aside the bin that I had all my gear in. What luck!! Unfortunately I decided with the downtime to get my shock serviced/upgraded. You guys ever hear of Push Industries? I'm going to send my fork/shock off to them to get "pushed". Can't wait to hit the trails!

    Slow down, Push is about 45 minutes from boulder and if you call them in advance you can make an appointment and drop your stuff off and pick it up with a much faster turn around time, so you could actually ride for the next week or two
