Boise Bike Boom

Apologies Boise for not noticing you earlier. We were preoccupied with the better known Portlands, Seattles, and Minneapoleis. With your low buildings, wide roads, big bike lanes, and flat dowtown, you’re a natural for urban cycling. Like an attractive and unappreciated little sister to those better known cities, when noticed you smiled and showed us treasures like a Pashley Delibike and Paul Frank.


Out of the city and on your roads, we climbed and descended Bogus Basin Road – carving the turns and flat-out flying the straightaways. Also talked to some locals that are all good with cyclists.

We’ll return another day Boise: ride more and tell our friends about you.


Those Pashley bikes are being used as in store display pieces at Anthropologie stores. My wife sent me a phone pic of one in the U-Village Anthro store.

Correct and I took a photo of [the flyer]( that indicates they only got two. I don’t know if that meant of all stores, that store, but regardless the Delibike is cool. Of course, it’s unlikely the store personnel recognize it’s coolness, but ok.

It’s been a bike boom in Boise this year for sure.  I’m curious to see how many people pedal into the upcoming cold weather…
