Thanks for the link, it is nice to know that Hoegaarden is available.
Biking in Idaho can be great. There is a lot of mountain biking in the foothills behind Boise (many miles of trails), en several racing clubs do their weekend rides. I am more into long distance touring, preferably self contained and camping. Not much is organized for that though. There are some awesome rides possible in Idaho, this summer we attempted to do the Magruder Corridor in Northern Idaho, a distance of 112 miles between two small towns, all through wilderness areas with most of it dirt. We had to turn back because of bad weather and snow on the highest passes. But the possibility of doing trips like that makes it great to live in Idaho.
They don't have very good bikepaths here though, the only one is a very nice trail along the river, but not very usefull for commuting or getting from A to B on a bike. Nederland is the best place for that! What kind of biking do you do? I got to this site because of research I'm doing for another 'big" trip, possibly through SE Asia, China and Tibet.
