    Cool-blue Rhythm I'm Moving to Boise

    Hello Boise Mountain Cyclists. My name is Rod and I am moving to Boise from Ann Arbor, MI. Do you have any good info on trails in the area. Last year I bought a Ellsworth Truth and have been "rippin' up the trails." I also have heard that there is a strong Christian community in Boise. I'm a Presbyterian and I "ride 4 Jesus." Is there any Christian cycling clubs? Thanks in advance for the information.

    Rod - Hit me up with a PM if you'd like info on the local BOMB group and BOMB factions. The good news about Boise it's a mixed MTB crowd and we jesus freaks get along real well with the normal folks and do lots of riding together regardless of spiritual backgrounds...

    Because it's so obvious that he rides a cross bike, that know one needs to say it.

    I think not Eric, but you could be right. I really was expecting "fully rigid with bomb-proof brake levers...." out of you though...

    Aluminum levers have been installed on both sides now. No more snaping those things off mid-ride.

    Which Religion is the truest?

    They are all about the same... Buda was not a Christian, But Jesus would have made a good Budist.

    "Welcome to Boise, Thanx for choosing my lane." Quote from the parking attendant at the airport when my Daughter moved to Boise.

    Sooooooooooo welcome to Boise and thanx for choosing our forum.
    When we teach all children from age 5 on to meditate just 1 hour per week on compassion war will end within 3 generations.

    You back in town Dave?

    Up for another ride again, real soon?

    That's great what the attendant said...

    The strangest thing happened to me when I first moved here - someone at Home Depot came up and said the weirdest thing to me:

    "How can I help you?" Freaked me out, almost had to pinch myself.

    Man I have to tell you - I am really disappointed - I expected some kind of response entailing animal sacrifice, PBR pentagram contests, spackle for the practitioners of the dark arts, or something about bambi being the antichrist. I sit here shocked, in awe.

    Now - Tighten your belt, stand up straight, and deliver something drenched in Earthpig flavor or I may never post to this board again (if ya'll could be that lucky).

    Either that or I'll assume holyrider.777 is really just your pen name for fun and were looking to spice up a soggy-trailed mid-week....

    Sorry, no "nom de plume" for moi. Unlike others on this board (who I will from now on refer to as "he who must not be named"), I actually can remember my password, so I don't have to go to the trouble of setting up an entirely new account just for the sole purpose of starting a flame war.

    That said, if holyrider's post was made in all seriousness, I can see him fitting in quite well within Idaho's ultrareligious majority. I'm still at a loss to understand the general concept of melding religion and biking, but it's no weirder than than Visicypher's spackling fetish!

    Hey, welcome. I ride with the Bomb groups now and then, and I know lots of Christian mountainbikers, (finding new ones almost every day, btw) although personally, I like riding with anybody and everybody, even the wild-eyed fire-breathing heathens around here most of whom I count as friends. The others I just haven't met yet.

    There are lots of good churches in the area too,

    and don't forget that Jesus might ride a cross bike, but

    his Dad is a freerider: "He rides upon the wind...!"

    He helps us catch air: "You lift me up to the wind {and} cause me to ride;"

    Or He's a 24hr racer: "Lift up {a song} for Him who rides through the deserts"

    An old dirtjumper? "To Him who rides upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times;"

    A humble sport-class champion? "And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and meekness {and} righteousness"

    Does God open up the high wilderness trails? "Then you will take delight in the LORD, And I will make you ride on the heights of the earth;"

    Anyway, give a holler or an email when you're close to arriving; anybody here would probably be happy to get you dialed in. Just don't carry a big black Bible on your rides, ok?

    Hi...

    Thanks for the colorful and curteous replies. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you.
    BTW, do some of you install drywall? I noticed some of you speak of spackle. I can also install drywall and have some carpentry skills. We are going to rent for awhile but I may try to buy a fixer-upper. Anyway, thanks again.

    Bro...

    I'm sorry you feel that way. Yes, I get what spackle means now. The term seems very lowbrow. Some of my friends have told me that Idaho can be a little "backwoodsy." I wouldn't expect that from you quys, now would I?

    In Christ,
    Rod

    P.S. Dingle, I look forward to meeting you.

    check your PMs Rod

    I sent you one yesterday......don't pet the dingos on the board, they bite. In person they're nicer and even jingle, probably even dingle. Listen to CBro, that wise (not wide!) old sage of a dingomeister.

    Schweet. Lowbrow...I'll have to get that waxed.

    FYI - the surroundings can be backwoodsy, but the people are nice. I hope that is what you meant.

    We are a fiesty lot.
