Though it chaps conservatives' hides to face facts, Jesus was the original free-loving hippie. He rocked long hair and a beard and kicked it old-school with the riff-raff in the cheap seats.
That's why it's a fair bet that were technology further along in his day, he would be schlepping around Nazareth on a bike, talking about social justice and how his dad could beat up your dad.
But what kind of bike? Would it be a vintage beach cruiser? A BMX ready to hit some sweet jumps? Perhaps a top-of-the-line, tricked-out handmade Italian fixie with chopped bars? Though it seems most likely he'd show up on a three-seater called the Trinity Express.
Sunday, April 1, you have the chance to find out what locals think the best commuting vehicle for a lord and savior is with the second-annual What Would Jesus Ride alley cat race, brought to Boise courtesy of Drink Beer Ride Bikes.
The race will start at the Payette Brewing Co. in Garden City at 1 p.m. and then proceed to points unknown, with the top finishers receiving prizes and everyone receiving free beer at the end.
The race is $10 to enter, and racers must be at least 21 years old. Only 100 slots are available, so show up early.
Racers are advised to bring cash and a backpack or bag for the event.
