Boise Weekly: Best of Boise Editor's Pick!

Best Guerilla Delivery Service 

Northstar Cycle Courier Inc.

We love our UPS and FedEx delivery people, but when we need important documents delivered across town in a hurry, we call Northstar Cycle Courier. Owners/messengers Patrick Sweeney and Warren O'Dell keep our packages safe, our environment healthy and, with their cheap rates, they keep our wallets a little more bulky. Plus, they're a helluva nice couple of guys.

-Thanks Boise Weekly!

Our sincere thanks goes out to Sally, Leila and Shea at The Boise Weekly for making this race happen every year. Thank you to all of the BW staff and our stop workers for corralling all the unruly cyclists. Thanks to Jason at the Lift for providing cheap beer and a great post-race atmosphere (and for putting up with a water balloon fight, parking lot fireworks and overall patio pandemonium). Cheers to Pabst Blue Ribbon for donating two kegs of beer and the Re-Load messenger bag. But, the biggest Thank You of all goes to you red-white-and-blue racers. All eighty-three of you. Commemorative shirts will be printed and delivered to you as soon as we can get 'em. See you next year!
