Cinch up your helmet and grease your chain: Boise Weekly's annual bike race and scavenger hunt, Bars & Stripes, is back. Roll in at noon to BW headquarters on Saturday, July 7, for a round-town race, beers and challenges. Stick around at the finish line for prizes and an after party. Pre-registration is $25, and is available online until midnight on Wednesday, July 4. Or, you can sign up the day of the competition starting at noon for $30. Riders looking to drink and cruise can join the drinking heat, which crosses the starting line at 1 p.m. Speed demons can select "racer" on the registration form, and depart at 2 p.m. Each heat will have first place winners for men and women. All racers get swag bags at check-in, and official Bars & Stripes t-shirts will be ordered after the race. Join us to pedal your way to some pints!
