Hi everyone! I actually already posted in the Commuting and Mountains-Plains forums, since I didn't see this one, but figured I'd introduce myself here now anyway! on May 29th I will be setting out by car for Boulder, and after arriving, will be looking to get seriously into biking, which I haven't done since I was little, and then only a bit (I never even got the hang of shifting, so I will have to learn that). Anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself formally here. Five weeks is seeming like forever now!
Welcome. Have fun and enjoy the move!

Boulder is a great place to ride. It's one of the most friendly towards cyclists and it has a huge amount of open space to really get out and stretch your legs. I love riding down there.
Welcome to bikeforums. :)

I remember three things about riding a bike in Boulder - the traffic (grrr!), the wind (grrr!) and the invisible ice that formed on the wood planking of the bridges along Boulder Creek (ouch!). You can maybe tell I wasn't a fan. :) Watch out for those invisibly icy bridges!
Then I moved to East Denver which was quite a nice place to bike around.

Hmm, I had only heard positives about biking in Boulder before. I will be careful of those bridges. Thanks for the welcome everyone!
