Boise Bike Week '10

In Boise, we are fortunate. In other communities, bike activism occurs as "Critical Mass Rides" and other confrontational events. By and large, bikes are accepted here, even embraced by a large percentage of the citizenship.

For the past few years, in May we've celebrated Boise Bike Week. This year, it's May 16-22. Check out the website and schedule... it's getting better organized, with more events, every year.

You Boise-area peope... pencil in a couple events right now. I'd personally recommend the Pedal Power Parade on Saturday afternoon. It's not as exuberant, perhaps, as the Fat Tire Parade later in the year, but it's a great way to gather in a relaxed setting with like-minded bicycle enthusiasts.

I wonder why the Ride of Silence on May 19th has not been scheduled. Maybe it would detract from the overall theme?
