The official launch party for Boise Bike Week is Monday evening at Highlands Hollow, but rides and events are taking place this weekend.
A bike corral will be at Saturday morning’s market in downtown Boise, and on Sunday there’s a brunch and ride.
National bike to work day comes on Friday, May 19. If you park a bicycle in the special bike valet in front Bittercreek Alehouse downtown, you can score a free beer between 3 and 8 p.m.
The final event of Boise Bike Week is May 20th. That Saturday, there’ll be a bike parade along a 3 mile route through downtown as well as a picnic.
A full schedule of bike week events is available at the Treasure Valley Biking Alliance's website.
In 2014, the U.S. Census Bureau ranked Boise fourth among big cities where people bike to work.
