Boulder Colorado indoor cycling

Postby RollerCoaster » Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:53 am

Boulder, CO has indoor cycling. They have riding choices for road and mountain biking. Diversifying is the way to create a successful business. http://www.boulderindoorcycling.com/Bou ... ation.aspx

Now, Boulder is getting a "a 40-acre bike park that will include a cyclocross course, a mountain bike terrain park and a pump dirt jump area, among other features." Perhaps most interestingly, the park will be built on what was once a junk yard lot on land just east of Boulder.

Move to Boulder then, we don't need that crap in Iowa :roll: That sort of riding just makes no sense here. Rural Iowa has thousands of miles of gravel roads, a gravel grinder's paradise. Bonus are farm dogs who will give chase, if you really want to be hard core - challenge yourself by going singlespeed! If you can't afford to relocate to Boulder, consider Peoria... it's only 3 hours away and has tons of riding that is simply outlandish, ridiculous, and has no place here in Iowa where people do things that make common sense... http://midwestmtbsummit.com/main/index. ... &Itemid=26

Edit
: Edwards Creek is in Michigan, not Peoria; so I guess nutball riding is further away that I had originally thought - my bad.

Iowa is a velodrome

Postby RollerCoaster » Tue Dec 09, 2008 12:53 pm

Iowa is a state wide velodrome. Just get a velomobile, studded tires and an ice scraper. Indoor riding for 1.

Not that I am against hunting at all, I just get annoyed with double standards and how the public perceives cycling, especially off road, as such a dangerous and high liability venture.

Look at the artist's rendering...

All that is needed for those kind of stunts is a simple hillside, and we have those here in CR

A small freeride place and some dj's/pump track here in town? Oh man, Cedar Rapids would be quite the unique place to ride in Iowa!!! How many other places in this state would be able to boast that? The more variety in riding styles, the better.

I agree w/ you man. It would be cool to build things like that to attract some tourism and for some to increase their skills. What I think is really cool is that they make most everything low to the ground, wide enough for most people to be able to give it a shot and it looks like there is an alternate route if simpler is elected.
There is always someplace in the world dry enough for kick'n up a little dirt.

Cedar Rapids has recently formed a Bicycle Advisory Committee, I believe at the suggestion of the council. Might be a good resource...

If anyone else is going you can ride with me. I have room for three others.

Thanks Jim, I'll see you tonight at the ICCOR open board meeting.

And thanks mem, I would like to speak with the Bicycle Advisory Committee.

Latest picture from their web site. I'm not too impressed. I need a 12' drop and several wall rides.

I'm not the big "indoor" rider, but I see it's place in a community. 3 things I see in that pic that are cool...
1. The little kids

2. Varying difficulties to build riding abilities that can carry to the trails

&

3. The track for "roadies" (not that I am one of those either, but they are good peops also) for a good cardio.

I seen yesterday, that a new indoor paintball place went into that old salvage surplus building off of 16th ave.
Use to be the old All Seasons John Deere retail. Too bad we couldn't find someone like that to share a space with. :think:
