Re: “More Spokes in Boise Bike Week's Wheels

Teaching future cyclists that they don't deserve to have a safe place to ride. Suck it up and be a car, otherwise you deserve to get hit by the driver on a cell phone. Mother-fucking ridiculous!!! As long as ACHD, ITD and the City of Boise defer to the BBP mafia, we will have more of the same, bikes and helmets for kids just to be trained to manage near death encounters with the good folk drivers of Idaho. Do Idahoan's know how to protest? or are they afraid? or are they just wimps? And yes, I have been to your committee meetings, volunteered and donated my money to the groups. Question is, will these groups ever step up to real change, or will they all become non-profits that somehow turn a profit to buy buildings?

Re: “Volunteers Pick Up Trail Work Where Forest Service Left Off

Are you joking?!?! Have you seen the budget for the forest service? Enough money to remove each log with a helicopter. What a waste... where has the money gone?

Re: “Thru-Hiking the Idaho Centennial Trail

So glad to read this! I too will be interested to hear about the outcome. We keep coming across sections of this trail and wonder how folks get resupplied with provisions. It really is out there!

Re: “Thru-Hiking the Idaho Centennial Trail

See this blog for first-person information about hiking the ICT -

I would add that the wilderness sections of the ICT are better-maintained than those sections outside of the wilderness, especially in N. Idaho ... make sure you take a GPS with you!

Re: “Volunteers Pick Up Trail Work Where Forest Service Left Off

It is good to see non-motorized users get involved in trail work. For those who didn't know, motorcycle clubs like Treasure Valley Trail Machine Association (TVTMA) volunteer to clear many hundreds of miles of trail each year. It's not unusual for us to cut 50-100 fallen trees off the trail in a single day. We often see hikers and cyclists on these motorized trails, and they tell us it's because the motorcycle trails are more reliably cleared and in better shape. We are glad to help.

Re: “Balancing Act

I wish there were more classes in the City Parks, by observing the movements they seam to be in harmony with nature. Looking for an adult class in Boise, that my husband & I could attend. We heard through the grape vine, that Tai Chi or Qi Gong are excellent for stress & these two forms of movement meditation would do wonders for our health. Inexpensive outdoor classes would be wonderful, any in Boise?

Re: “Renovation Plans Fronted for Rhodes Park

Someone please write more about the displacement of these homeless people. Since this, I know of two that have been hit by cars and died and it sounds like a few that have washed up on the river. Where have they gone? They cant all fit in the shelter. Someone investigate. These are people not eyesores to be removed. You know what's an eyesore right now? The fence they have up so that the homeless cant congregate in the SHADE where they used to there any longer. The heat alone could kill someone right now. These are people, not objects. Remember that folks.

Re: “Dam Proposal on the Weiser River Trail Calls for Sacrifice

:Management or Asset Resorse Allocation:
If a ski area snow fall is short one year, does that mountain owes us more snow next year??
Perhaps it's the "attitude" behind resources and management.
We didn't hear from the native Americans in the artical, possably because they might be so aware that an argument based on "who owns it,or who needs it,and who wants" has been arroumd sinse 1492.
Perhaps to "manage" the last free flowing "asset" is to let her take care of herself as it's been since the last ice age,..We all might learn a great deal from her a "Freedom" this country seems to be so quick to defend and protect.

Re: “Boise Receives 'Silver' Bicycle Friendliness Rating from League of American Bicyclists

Boise Weekly: Thank you for representing concerned cyclists in Ada County in the past several years in reporting on bike infrastructure. However, Boise is a Bronze Minus as best, with a string of bicycle fatalities.

Is The City of Boise or Ada County actually considering safety in their infrastructure planning?

There has been a recent study in Ada County and the City of Boise that may influence the safety aspect of the recent League of American Bicyclists rankings. Up until now there has been very little (if any) analysis of the bicycle accidents in relation to bike infrastructure done by these governing agencies. Within this crash data there is significant evidence that the infrastructure in Ada County and the City of Boise are simply political window dressing doing little to improve public safety.
