Kristin Armstrong Celebration Set For Saturday


Kids of all ages are invited to bring their own sets of wheels Saturday, Aug. 11, to ride alongside Kristin Armstrong, on what will be a combination birthday party/citywide celebration to honor the two-time Olympic gold medalist. Armstrong turns 39 on Saturday.

The fun begins with a ride at 3 p.m. from the Boise Depot down Capitol Boulevard to Capitol Park, in front the Idaho Statehouse. Participants who want to take part in the ride are asked to arrive at the depot by 2:30 p.m. For those who choose to join the procession farther down the hill, they'll be able to merge into the caravan near the new Micron Business and Economics Building at Boise State.

Armstrong will sign autographs on provided photos of her golden moment at the London Olympics, and plenty of birthday cake is being promised.
