Pedal for the People Festival

If you pedal, and you like to party, looks like Boise is a good place to be this month.

The Boise Bicycle Project presents two full weeks of various good times related to bicycling, starting Saturday, June 9. (That's tomorrow.)

Some of the more "interesting" events include The Helladrome, "a looped velodrome/cyclocross/obstacle course on steroids," bike rides to the Shakespeare Festival, a kids' bicycle hillclimb contest, the "Bare as you Dare II" ride (adults only), nostalgic "tweed ride" and vintage bike ride, "chainless" bike race (hmmm...), etc.  If all the scheduled events aren't nearly as cool as the one you imagine... well, let 'em know what you're thinking of, and get it added to the calendar!

Looks like fun! And may raise some funds for the very noble BBP.

(A personal note: due to various standing plans and obligations, I'll only be in town for a few days over the next two weeks. It breaks my heart because I've ridden my bicycle every day since mid-October, and I'll be leaving the bicycle behind. But all streaks have to come to an end, huh? I'll definitely check out the events on the days I'm in town.)

That sounds like a good time. Boise isn't the first place I think of when it comes to riding bikes, but I guess maybe things are changing?
