Boise Bike Week


The Facebook page for Boise Bike Week is loaded; to celebrate traveling on two wheels, the Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance has packed 14 events into seven days. Although it's already mid-week, there are still plenty of opportunities left to get in on lauding life in the bike lane. Wednesday will feature a Ride of Silence down Bannock Street in downtown Boise to honor victims to bike accidents, raise awareness for cyclists and advocate for sharing the road. On Thursday, bikers can score free ice cream at Goody's Soda Fountain & Candy Store in Hyde Park courtesy of Boise GreenBike, which will cut the ribbon on its new bike station. Friday will bring a screening of Breaking Away at Boise Bicycle Project, and on Saturday, an adaptive bike fair and party at The HandleBar will finish the week. Roll out your two-wheeler for those events and many more.
