been out, people have been very pleasant & the weather's been good, so not much to report. i did want to share this, because the trails that are created with money from this event benefit all of us:
The Boise Tour de Fat is back this year on Saturday, August 21 at Ann Morrison Park. The event is one of my favorites because of the unusual entertainment/ theme and good cold beer which in turn brings in a unique crowd. The event includes a themed bike parade through downtown Boise before the kegs are tapped in the park. The purpose of this event is to raise money for trails and outdoor opportunities for mountain bikers, hikers, walkers and runners in the Boise area.
The SW Idaho Mountain Bike Association (SWIMBA) event does not run itself, so we need volunteers to sell beer tokens and wrist bands. Shifts start at 9:00 am and run 3 hours each until 6:00 pm. Each volunteer gets a cool t-shirt and 2 beer tokens, to compliment their personal contribution to the community by helping put on this great bike festival for Boise. If you would like to volunteer please contact: Margie Rosenberg, the event coordinator and president of SWIMBA at mag83701@yahoo. com
the money raised biulds trails for all users and greatly supplements what ridge to rivers would be able to do on its own. plus, it's a great time!
