A fabulous day off in Boise, Idaho. What do you do on a day off on a bike ride like this? Well, let's see...we did laundry, cleaned our bikes, got new gearing at the bike shop to help me get over the mountains, reorganized our luggage, bought two different bandana/cooling towel contraptions to help us stay cool, (heat is coming) and, of course, we went for a bike ride! (Only because we had a day off Sunday, so we're pretty well-rested now.)
I am very impressed with Boise. I had no idea it is such a lovely city. We rode along the Boise River Greenbelt which coincidentally follows the Boise River, and links eight parks all named after women community leaders. Most of today's pics are from that ride. Check out what we saw:
Giraffes at Zoo Boise
Surfers---Yes in Boise!
Who knew? Look closely.
Sign of the Day:
Kids: "Officer, we weren't jumping. We were dropping."
Officer: "Sorry kids, it says right on the sign no dropping."
How do you surf from a bridge?
Our latest road hazard.
Whole Foods thinks of everything.
This is the Free Air and Repair stand outside their store.
There are bike tools attached to the back side of the pole, too.
Tomorrow a 53-mile ride to Mountain Home, Idaho. Sounds like a pleasant place to live.
