Calling all riders in the Denver, CO area

I am going to be in Fort Collins, Colorado from Saturday 29th of May to 11th of June. It would be very cool to hook up with some local riders in the Fort Collins/Boulder/Denver area and go for some rides. I'll be bringing my MUni with me (its second visit to the USA) for some offroad action. I should have plenty of time to ride and a flexible schedule too.

Where can I go MUni-ing around Ft Collins? Anyone know of any good areas/trails to try?

I'll be living in Denver this summer (DTC area) and free for riding sometime in June. Drop me an email when you get there, or dig up this thread.

Hi Tony;

We'd be happy to hook-up with you for a ride. We're in Boulder, and alot of our favorite trails are in between Boulder and Fort Collins. Also there is a Wed night trials thing we do in a local gym, lots of fun and a soft floor to land on! Send me a PM and we can talk further.

I posted a reply to this thread via Usenet, but the gateway is down. The bottom line is there is good riding near Fort Collins, and I'm sure plenty more if you head south towards Denver.

Let's hook up for a ride (easy for you, hard for me :-) when you get to town. Send me an email or look me up in the phone book.

Wow what a response to my post! I haven't checked on RSU for 3 days as I've been out of town at the first NZ MUni weekend. Looking forward to going riding with all of you guys. Thanks a lot George, Ken, Andy and Jim. I will get in touch with you once I arrive in Colorado, either by email or PMs.

Can't wait to Muni-ing in ther Rockies!

Make time to head into the mountains, 2-3hr drive, and come to Aspen. Plan on a weekend or two weekdays minimum for some excellent riding. Cheers

I'm 2 hours south of Denver, but go up there all the time. I'd love to get a good ride in. I have Tues/Weds off work this month if that works for you. There are a crap load of good trails along the entire Front range.

Urgent appeal! Need 36 in rim, NOW!

I'm not a unicyclist, but I am hoping someone on looking at this thread will know where a 36 in coker or similar 36 in rim can be obtained right away. A friend of mine is in the Kinetics race in Boulder this Saturday, May 7, and his Coker rim just pretzeled. Please email bosque124@msn.com if you have any info on bike shops or anyone in else in the Denver area that might be willing to sell a rim or wheel now.

Thanks

Sorry, I can't help you, but I thought it was interesting that
someone's doing a kinetic sculpture race on unicycle. I'm currently
preparing a unicycle entry for the 3-day Arcata-to-Ferndale Kinetic
Sculpture race over Memorial Day Weekend. What's the Boulder race like,
what kind of distance and terrain? Are the rules similar to
Arcata-to-Ferndale? What's the Coker rider using for flotation?
