Boise's first Txirrindulari Bike Ride
We also heard from our friends in Boise who wanted to share news about their first Txirrindulari Bike Ride that will take place on September 13, 2014. This will be a friendly 15-20 mile ride for fun, followed by a potluck lunch. They are encouraging sign ups now for bikers as well as folks who will be willing to help the cyclists, take pictures and set up for lunch. More details will follow but sign up now here.
