Boise Bike Week alleycat 2006

Yet another successfull Boise Bike Week has come and gone.
Big thanks to Tracy Wilson for runnin the show and for promoting Northstar Courier in the process.
Friday nite's scavenger hunt/race went off without a hitch and when the dust settled; Northstar's own Chris Scuglia had grabbed first place, edging out local alleycat kingpin Cody Caldera.
Satchels' Restaurant provided the post race festivities until a gnarly wind storm brought down the serious lightning and rain and cut short the evening's outdoor movie show.
About 25 cyclists turned out for the 10 stop race which included a lap around the track at Boise High and some hot coffee consumption at Thomas Hammer Coffee Roasters.
Already looking forward to next year's events.

May in Motion

Thanks to all who came down and chatted with us at the May in Motion alternative transportation event. We met some good folks and were impressed with the support.

"The Cycling Commute Gets Chic"...or so says today's Wall Street Journal.
WSJ had a decent article about the growing popularity of cycle commuting
in cities around the U.S. today, complete with full-color photo of a woman
trying to tuck for speed(?) on her mountain bike. Boise wasn't mentioned
but we're way ahead of that trend already, if you don't currently commute
by bike but would like to join the plenty that do, mosey over to the local
Commuteride web site for some good information.
