Boise folks, where do you ride?

I'm looking for some new 10-20 mi road rides heading out of downtown Boise. Warm Springs/Greenbelt and Hill Road are getting a bit tired. What are some other options?

bogus basin road. especially fixed, just push yourself until you just can't go any farther up...it might not be far, or long, but if you keep hill-climbs a part of your regular regimen, it'll really help strengthen you up. i used to bogus on my road bike, now i do mt. tabor fixed. not as often as i should, but shhhh....

one thing i forgot about boise, now that i'm in town, is how much thinner the air is here than in portland. i'm going to be a bit slower than some other people, i think.

Hilltop Cafe above Luck Peak or just up to Luck Peak if you don't want the climb.

Checkout Lactic Acid's ride list. Most start from downtown.

Seaman's Gulch to hidden springs and back is usually a good road ride.
From downtown, it's a good work out.
