The Foothills have long been at the heart of the identity of Boise, towering above the city as a visual reminder of place—and of the things Boiseans do here. The Southwest Idaho Mountain Biking Association has put the hills in its heart too. Join the SWIMBA team on Thursday, Nov. 14, at Beside Bardenay for an all-ages event that will keep the trail-riding organization's tires pumped for another season. During its annual end-of-season celebration, it will sell $5 raffle tickets with rad prizes from local bike shops, Deity Components and of course, epic SWIMBA gear. Kicking the event up another gear is the Instagram competition. By snapping a picture on the SWIMBA trails and on bike rides using #swimbatrails, a prize will be given to the best picture. Keep the funk going with an afterparty at bike-themed watering hole The Handlebar.
6 p.m.-10 p.m., FREE. Beside Bardenay, 610 W. Grove St., Boise, swimba.org.
