I'm heading out to Boise in a couple weeks for a top secret bike adventure. Not necessarily C & V. Anyone here from there?

A good friend lives in Boise. He's into vintage cruiser-style bikes.

He's got a country band named "Poke": Poke - The most entertaining Country Music Band in Boise!

Here's his take on a Spinning class:

60 miles away. Not getting there unless I can visit my father and uncle's spots in the VA Cemetery wall.

I may be in the area in a few weeks myself. Trying to decide on where to go play on the next week off.

Surly Bikes is having a "super secret" set of 8 new bikes through my friend's bike shop. Gonna ride around a mountainous park with both dirt & paved trails. So...I'm going. Anyone say "ROAD TRIP!"? Of course, not C & V, but oh well.

Mr. VV has a commitment, so I'm solo. I'll bring my '91 Trek 950 for some riding along the river trail.
