Each year BSU has a homecoming parade. This was fun to watch, even though I haven’t yet been to a game. The parade consisted mostly of local Boise High Schools and their bands. I think my favorite float was a massive flatbed truck with two CAT digging machines on the back. The two college operators would move the digging scoops over the crowds. Go agriculture!
I can’t believe the bike culture here in Boise. This place feels like a tiny little LA- with all but 10% of the cars taken away, bike lanes galore and the same thriving bike community.
Walking through Boise on my first day here, I was amazed at all the cyclists cruising through the city. All sorts of people on all sorts of bikes: college students on cheap mountain bikes, kids on color-matched fixed gear bikes, moms and dads on italian road bikes, expensive mountain bikes! Outside a bar in an area called the “Basque Quarter” (spanish families moved here long ago) I saw a fixed gear bike with a “Midnight Ridazz Boise” spokecard! I’d say any city that has a costumed bike ride through the downtown area at midnight has something to offer.
I think I’m going to check and see if other people are interested in creating a Boise Bike Calendar like Los Angelenos have at www.bikeboom.com.
