While they're relatively new to Boise, alley cat races are a tradition in bigger cities. The races are usually organized by bike messengers and involve sprinting around town on bikes along all sorts of random courses, which usually involve at least one bar. Northstar Cycle Courier bike messengers have taken the lead in bringing the races to Boise, including BW's own Bars and Stripes race. Lots of sweaty people streaking around town in search of beer. Sounds fun.
