Wow! I actually participated in an official Boise Bike Week event! The Pedal Power Parade took place Saturday afternoon. Conditions were close to ideal. It seemed to go off pretty much without a hitch. I'd say there were 200-250 riders; ages ranged from 2 to 82, I'm guessing.
I also finally had a chance to meet my "virtual friend" Danielo in real life, and he's my real friend now. (He shares my enthusiasm for bicycling, and we post comments on one anothers' blogs. I was going to include a link to his, but he's apparently chaning hosts.)
I've attached three photos - one before and two after. (I'm not confident enough to try to snap photos while riding, and I dearly wanted to participate. It looked that there were a couple people snapping enroute photos.)
The middle photo is of one of my favorite families... and they ride together! They are AWESOME! Team Cyclista! (Dad also blogs at http://cyclistemoderne.blogspot.com about the world of professional bicycle road racing, and they sell some cool bike stuff at http://www.cyclista.com .) They were by far the best-looking team in this year's Pedal Power Parade! (-;
